Ubi's Big Wii Hits

Rayman Raving Rabbids and Red Steel sell nearly a million copies each on Wii.

by IGN Staff

April 26, 2007 - Publishing giant Ubisoft today announced that it saw a 37.4 percent increase in its fourth quarter sales due to strong sales of TMNT across eight platforms and GRAW2 on Xbox 360. The company's fourth quarter sales beat projections, which is undoubtedly good news to investors, but Nintendo fans will more likely find the following news interesting.

Ubisoft also revealed that its Wii launch titles Rayman Raving Rabbids and Red Steel have respectively sold 830,000 and 950,000 copies around the globe so far. Both are likely to cross the million barrier in the next couple of months. Strong starts to what will surely be two continuing Wii franchises for the publisher.

Last year, Ubisoft posted a want ad seeking a game designer to help on the "... continuation of the Red Steel [sic] project." The ad requested that applicants be experienced with online gameplay.
