Assassin’s Creed 3 Wii U features enhances gameplay

Assassin’s Creed 3 will be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users at the end of the month, and unlike the Wii console Nintendo fans will get the opportunity to play games like this on the new Wii U system. With this in mind, we are intrigued to know how big a part the GamePad controller will play as far as this game is concerned.

Those getting the new Wii U console will have to wait a little longer than the others, as the launch of the game will come at the same time as the new system releases. In an article on Latinos Post, they highlight the arrival of Assassin’s Creed 3 and the Wii U console, and discuss how this will enhance the gameplay with exclusive features that are only specific to Nintendo’s new features. Going by comments made by Ubisoft’s Alex Hutchinson, he feels this game could actually be better on the Wii U and this is down to the map being displayed on the Gamepad, while you play through this title.

The open world scenarios in Assassin’s Creed 3 will be ideal with the use of a map nearby, especially since this is the biggest AC to date, with the largest of maps. The intention here is to make life so much easier for those planning their route ahead and work out where the enemy are. In addition, the naval battles have some exclusive uses for the GamePad and in this instance, it works like a radar, warning users of incoming enemy ships, and those who want to plan their shots can visualize this with the help of the controller.

When it comes to searching through your extensive arsenal the GamePad is ideal for those not wanting to keep going to the menu. It seems that Ubisoft are implementing the Wii U features to the best of their ability with Assassin’s Creed 3 and it has been mentioned that steering the ship and firing cannons is so much easier on the GamePad. In other Assassin’s Creed 3 news, our earlier post explained how the missions map is inspired by Skyrim, and those at Ubisoft who have spent time with the Elder Scrolls title have been inspired enough to implement this into their game.

Before this, we spoke about a limited Wii U supply, and although this is not a problem for the US release, other territories are destined to run out and Japan was one of the areas mentioned. With Christmas coming up we may see the Wii U console going out of stock prior to the end of the New Year, so have you ordered yours yet?
