Super Ubi Land title to change following Ubisoft complaints

Indie developer Notion Games will change the title of the upcoming retro-styled platformer Super Ubi Land following complaints from Ubisoft over potential confusion and possible brand infringement, the studio revealed via Twitter.

Despite the similarity in name, Super Ubi Land has no connection to Ubisoft. The title was first announced in January and is being published by Maestro Interactive.

Notion Games explained the situation through the company's Twitter account, stating it has "been exchanging emails with Ubisoft. Unfortunately, we have to change the title of Super Ubi Land."

The studio added: "Ubisoft is not doing anything wrong. They're protecting their business just like any small business would." and later wrote "They don't want Notion infringing on their brand. They're being fair."

Super Ubi Land reared its head on Kickstarter in February, with a funding goal of a mere $5,000. The game was successfully funded by April, reaching $6,333 from nearly 300 backers. The game is being developed for Wii U, Windows PC, Mac and Linux. It's worth noting that this isn't the first game from Notion with "Ubi" in the title. The studio previously released arcade iOS game Up Up Ubi, currently available on the App Store.

We have reached out to Notion over whether their iOS release will also be affected.
