UbiSoft Opens Development Studio in Brazil

The French publisher is opening a new game studio called Ubisoft São Paulo, in Brazil. They will start with DS games for girls between 8 and 14. There are also plans to open new studios in Rio de Janeiro and Florianópolis.

UOL Jogos has the scoop, but this time only in Portuguese.

Nope, there won't be any shovel-ware at all coming out of that studio. None...at...all.

Reading more of it, it sounds like they plan to try and get big enough to develop for the 360 and PS3, or the next gen consoles by that time.

I wholeheartedly agree; Brazil is ready to pop on the world scene like India only wishes it could. Now, if they can just get people to buy legit games...

Well, Brazil has like, a million more hot chicks than India ever will. And I think getting South-Americans to buy legit games is gonna be really tough. I mean, REALLY tough. There are no laws and if there are then no one enforces them.
