Which third party has worked best with Nintendo?

Ubisoft 12 37.50%
 
Koei Tecmo 3 9.38%
 
Bandai Namco 4 12.50%
 
Capcom 2 6.25%
 
Sega 4 12.50%
 
Other (be specific) 7 21.88%

Lately Nintendo has had some great collaborations with third parties, resulting in stuff like Hyrule Warriors with Koei Tecmo, the surprise hit of Mario + Rabbids with Ubisoft, moving Super Smash Bros. forward with Bandai Namco, but who's worked best with Nintendo?

For me it would be Bandai Namco, for helping out with not just Smash for 3DS and Wii U, but giving us Pokken Tournament and now working on Smash Bros. Ultimate. :)

Which third party do you think has done best with Nintendo though?



Around the Network

UBI Soft, as so far they are the only ones that have provided exclusives or limited time ones to both the Wii U and the Switch. Granted recently most have had Nintendo IP attached but they have done more then most. Bandai Namco have been ok but mostly with late ports or retro stuff.



My answer to this question changes depending on exactly what time period were talking about.

But, generally speaking, I'd say Sega. Sega has been releasing games on Nintendo platforms continuously since their exit from the hardware business.

Sorry, I should have said recently.



Well, if were talking about the Switch generation, I think I'm going with Bethesda. They're the only western publisher putting recent, mulitplat AAA games on the platform.

Still don't buy them not being able to do Fallout 76 on Switch.



For me it is Sega. I really love Puyo Puyo Tetris, and now I know I will get both Sonic Mania and Valkyria Chronicles 4 in the future.



I would say Ubisoft because Mario Rabbids and StarFox in Starlink had a big impact in terms of reveal. And everyone seemed to be happy with it.



Pocky Lover Boy!

I was certainly shocked, but very happy, to see Star Fox characters in Starlink, and I hope the Starlink dev team makes a new Star Fox game. ^^
