E3 2011: Ubisoft Partners With Nintendo For Wii U Developer Roundtable

Nintendo is coming out of the gate strong with the new Wii U console.  With a history of weak third party developer relationships, Nintendo appears to be putting a new foot forward.  Not only is Nintendo reaching out to third party developers but they have already put in place a fairly impressive partnership with Ubisoft.
