Ubisoft Goes After Casual Switch Market With 3 Party Games

It’s very interesting to see how different companies approach the Nintendo Switch. Some have found massive success by releasing more traditional and hardcore games, like Wolfenstein II and Doom. Indies have had massive success with classic 8-bit and 16-bit adventures. Ubisoft seems to be taking a scattershot approach hoping to land sales with a wide variety of consumers.

Last year they partnered with Nintendo to release the excellent Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Next month another big budget game, Starlink, will hit the market. But, instead of releasing games like Far Cry 5, Ghost Recon, or The Division, Ubisoft has chosen to go back to the Wii days and push out very casual games. The ESRB has rated three of them: Sports Party, Hasbro Game Night, and America’s Greatest Game Shows: Wheel of Fortune & Jeopardy. While we completely understand the appeal of these types of games, especially on the Switch where you can take it with you and play with friends and family, we’d also like to see a bit more focus on the core audience as well. If Panic Button can get the latest Bethesda IPs up and running on the Switch, we have to believe Ubisoft could do the same.
