Where third party developers and companies stand with the Wii U is difficult to judge, we can clearly see that multi-platform games are being delayed or even just skipping the Wii U, yet companies such as EA and Ubisoft still declare that they fully support Nintendo – a move which audiences are unsure to interpret this as a PR stunt to look friendly, or whether it’s the honest truth.
Today, another piece of news seems to prove that Ubisoft actually meant that they supported Nintendo and the Wii U, as Masahiro Sakurai has revealed o a new Rayman Smash Bros trophy and how they managed to get the rights and make the trophy on Miiverse:
“In order to make Rayman’s trophy, we asked Ubisoft to share their references. We were expecting to receive 2D drawing references for Rayman, but to our surprise, they sent us data of a brand new 3D model that they rendered for this game!! And that was how this trophy was created. It takes a lot of work creating each model, so it’s wonderful that the creators contributed their own efforts!!”
It’s pretty awesome that Smash Bros will have a Rayman trophy in general, what makes this news even more exciting is that Ubisoft actually went through the effort of sending in a brand new 3D model and making a worthwhile contribution to the game.
