Following recent news that French-headquartered Ubisoft has a total of seven Wii titles currently in development, the company today announced the names of each of these projects, which include new versions of existing franchises including Far Cry and Blazing Angels. In addition to previously announced titles Rayman Raving Rabbids and the Wii-exclusive Red Steel, Ubisoft confirmed development of Wii versions of the driving game Monster 4X4 World Circuit, Sony Pictures Animation's Open Season, Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII (released previously for the Xbox 360, as well as the Xbox and PC), and GT Pro Series developed exclusively for the Wii by MTO. In addition, the company confirmed that a version of its popular first-person shooter Far Cry is also in development for the upcoming platform. Each of these titles is anticipated to be available in time for the Wii's launch. Though no specific date for the console's debut has been announced by Nintendo, many anticipate it could be released as early as October. “We're thrilled that Ubisoft will be unveiling Wii versions of both exclusive new IP and established franchises,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, president and chief operating officer for Nintendo of America. “Bursting with creativity, innovation and unadulterated fun, these Ubisoft games embody the qualities that will make Wii a huge hit with gamers new and established, young and old.” “Media and analysts agree that Ubisoft has the greatest potential for reward with the new console's launch because we believed in it from the beginning,” said Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft North America. “With an impressive lineup of launch games that offer something for everyone, we are in a unique position to benefit from the Wii's success in appealing to both new and hardcore gamers.”
