Martinez said the company is "very pleased" with the sales of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, which was the best-selling third party title on the Switch in 2017.  He added that with the continued success of the Switch the game should have long legs and keep selling.

They need to be less picky about your teams. There were a lot of combinations I wanted to try WITHOUT Mario.

Ubi Soft supported the Wii-U better then most and that nintendo gave them their IP to work with is smart, because they will support the switch better then most now.

Far cry 3 classic edition would be a nice fit on switch, it's my favourite far cry game and the game shouldn't be that demanding

Good for them, but aint buying the game. I am not interested in most of Ub's game except Tom Clancy franchise. I play rainbow six on PC but if they can bring next Splinter Cell to Switch, I will consider it.
