Ubisoft was an early supporter of the Wii U platform. And now, after nearly four months without much in the way of releases for the console, the publisher is doing Nintendo another favour - slashing the price of all of its games on the eShop digital store.
Two of the company's biggest releases on the system, ZombiU
and Assassin's Creed III
, have been reduced in price from the extortionate £54.99 to a much more sensible £29.99.
Other titles have dropped from £39.99 to £19.99 - these include Just Dance 4
, Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth
, Rabbids Land
, Sports Connection
and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013
Sure, they might not represent truly amazing deals, but at the very least it's an attempt at stirring some life into the system - a responsibility of Nintendo's that seems to be taking an extraordinarily long time to accomplish. This week, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
will launch, with LEGO City Undercover
arriving a week later.
