As usual, Yves Guillemot sends admirations for the Nintendo Switch via a Facebook post. On top of that, the Ubisoft CEO tagged along with his message a surprise title for the upcoming console-handheld hybrid. Could this be another marketing gimmick, or will the surprise game genuinely surprise gamers when time comes?
After the 3-minute reveal video, a wide range of reactions came out of the gaming community. Some say it's a revolutionary device, some say it's a copy from a Chinese device that already had thought of the concept, others bailed out their Nintendo shares, among other crazy reactions. Despite the cocktail of thoughts about Nintendo switch, Xbox's Phil Spencer and Ubisoft's Yves Guillemot have positive takes on the handheld-console hybrid by respectively airing out their support and expressing that they are impressed by it.
In addition to all those praises, Guillemot has posted on Facebook a couple of stuff for the Nintendo Switch. First, he predicts that the system will revolutionize the way we play video games, and a statement that gives clues on another major title on top of the already confirmed Just Dance 2017, in a promised form of 'surprise'.
"With the Switch's unique capacities and design, Nintendo could again redefine the way we play games! The Switch is accessible at its core and will give people the freedom and the pleasure to share more experiences and play anywhere at anytime. The Ubisoft teams developing games for the Switch are inspired by these new possibilities, and I'm really happy that we're able to continue doing great things with Nintendo. In addition to Just Dance 2017, I think there's at least one game that will definitely surprise you!"
As of this writing, there is no confirmed information on what 'surprise' game will come out for the Nintendo Switch. Game Rant stated on their post that Ghost Recon Wildlands would not come out as surprising so that's one title out of the picture. However, their best bet would be Beyond Good and Evil 2.
On the other hand, Nintendo officially announced that they will not focus on hardcore gaming but instead cater a wide range of gamers. So if we base the 'surprise' on this aspect, could it be that the referred game would be a Triple-A title? Or would it be a casual game? At this point, nobody knows.
