When the Wii U was launched, it didn't take long for developers and even retailers to lament at how poorly the console was doing. However with the Nintendo Switch, developers and retailers are singing a completely different story as many appear to be pretty happy and optimistic about the console's future.
One such company is Ubisoft in which during the company's recent financial call (via Nintendo Everything), CEO Yves Guillemot was quoted as saying, "So yes, this relationship continues to grow, and we are very happy with what we were able to achieve with Mario + Rabbids. Let's also not forget the fact that Just Dance is also a big seller on the Switch, and that will continue to follow the growth of that machine."

Portal Knights began as an Early Access project. A title that would be built with our community, for our community. To see our creation now on console is just super exciting for the entire team! We basically started off with a blank canvas. With a vision in mind, we began bringing the idea of Portal Knights to life, applied a layer of paint, then opened our doors to our community to get their feedback and suggestions. Over the last 15 months, we've been listening to our players, made changes and added a bunch of awesome new features in response. Now we have a painting to be proud of!
