One of the people GamesIndustry picked for its People of the Year series was none other than Ubisoft’s Davide Soliani, the battle director of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.
In Soliani’s recent interview, he revealed how involved Nintendo was when it came to ensuring Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle’s tip top quality, and the great relationship both companies have established down. Check out his full statement below.
We established a very good relationship to the point where when we went to Japan for several days on a holiday, we would meet with the guys we work with from Nintendo, because we had become friends. But when it was about work, Nintendo were super picky. They wanted to know everything, and play everything. This was good, because it gives you a feeling that you are safe. They have over 125 years of lifetime, and they’re giving you feedback with the expectation of a certain level fo quality. So for me, Nintendo is a shield. It means we know we’ll hit a certain level.
