Ubi Soft target Nintendo gamers
New releases penned for GameBoy Advance and GameCube
Ubi Soft has today announced an exclusive publishing deal with Eidos Interactive. The agreement will see the French publisher releasing "Salt Lake 2002: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games" (blimey) on the GameBoy Advance in January 2002. The game will feature six official events, environments unsurprisingly based on Salt Lake City and will allow up to four players to join in the fun ("on one machine" according to their press release, but we guess that's a clerical error, and they actually mean on one cartridge). The firm has also secured the publishing rights to one of the first RPGs for the GameCube. "Evolution Worlds", the next instalment of the series that rose to popularity in this country on the humble Neo Geo Pocket Colour and Sega's Dreamcast, will be published worldwide by Ubi Soft (except for Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan - hardly worldwide then?) in the first half of 2002. In total that makes 19 titles Ubi Soft has in production for Nintendo GameCube. Related Feature - Hip to be Cube!
