Four Ubisoft Nintendo 3DS launch titles

Rayman! Ghost Recon! Splinter Cell! Asphalt!

Four Ubisoft-created Nintendo 3DS games will launch on the same day as the console: 25th March.

They are Rayman 3D, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell and Asphalt 3D.

Splinter Cell is a remake of Chaos Theory. Rayman 3D is a remake of Rayman 2. Asphalt is a 3D version of the iPhone game. And Shadow Wars is a turn-based strategy game from X-COM creator Julian Gollop, who Eurogamer interviewed in November last year.

A week later Ubisoft will launch Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D and Rabbids 3D.

Then, at some point during "mid 2011", Ubisoft will release Driver Renegade and James Noir's Hollywood Crimes for the 3DS. That's eight Ubisoft games in total planned for release during the 3DS "launch window", which Nintendo states runs until the end of June.
