Ubisoft @ E3
Last year, Nintendo platforms were pretty much ignored during Ubisoft’s press conference (not too surprising given the current state of third-party support on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS from western developers, including Ubisoft). But this year might be different, as Nintendo is expected to unveil its NX platform within the next couple of months. Will we get to see games for the NX platforms during Ubisoft’s press conference? Maybe!
The press conference will take place on:
- Europe: June 13th, 10PM
- UK: June 13th, 9PM
- North America (EST): June 13th, 4PM
- North America (PST): June 13th, 1PM
- Japan: June 14th, 5AM
