...So I was thinking about the whole 'supporting Ubisoft versus supporting developers who work for Ubisoft debate' and couldn't help but think of this option because.....hey it solves the problem.
U-Milan has gained focus and attention as a result of the Rabbids success, expanding its size and interest from developers in the process. Its done a lot of Nintendo-ish work with casual and handheld games prior to Rabbids. And if it was to become Nintendo Milan or something it would not have the Ubisoft stink as the studio was not one of the ones hit by the Ubisoft expose I believe.
This has happened before, with Monolith Studios originally being a subsidiary of Bandai Namco before agreeing to set up a share sell n shift due to issues with Namco. Now....I am aware that Monolith was a lot less entangled than Ubisoft Milan is, but it is an example of it.
Of course the question is in what world would Ubisoft sell a studio...but hey why not ponder?
(Minor caveat: Milan does get support from Ubisoft Paris in developing Mario Rabbids, but I'd assume that support studios can be farther afield and adjusted for if nothing else)
The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
