Although it won't quite be ready for launch day on November 18 in US (November 30 in UK), Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot has told Polygon that it should be ready soon after.

"We hope to have a good connection with their systems because Nintendo has been very open to us and allowed us to use our systems to communicate with our customers," he said.

Ubisoft is a key third party for Wii U right from launch, with two major titles lined up for day one - Assassin's Creed 3 and ZombiU.

Guillemot also said the firm was keen to support the sale of full retail titles and digital downloads.

"It's a good system," he said. "As soon as it's possible, we will do it."
