Ubisoft Bringing Assassin’s Creed And Revolutionary First-Person Shooter To Wii U

By Ishaan . June 7, 2011 . 6:39pm

Ubisoft just sent out a press release with a few hints of what their plans for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U system are. An unnamed Assassin’s Creed game — or games, the phrasing is ambiguous — will be released for Wii U, Ubisoft revealed, along with a Rabbids game (again, games?) and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online.

 

They also mention two new brands that are in development for the system. One of these is described as a “revolutionary first-person shooter for the hardcore audience,” while the other is a multi-sports game for families. Does Red Steel still count as a new brand?

 

Playable builds of Ghost Recon Online are already available at Nintendo’s booth at E3. As far as the other games go, we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

    I guess this is what Ubisoft meant by their leveraging their Xbox 360 and PS3 game development for the Wii U.  I do not see the word “exclusively” in there.  Good now my hardened Nintendo friend can finally experience the ethereal experience that is Assassin’s Creed.

    I remember the last revolutionary FPS they had ready for a Nintendo launch

    Don’t think the world has forgotten Red Steel, Ubisoft >:(

    Would be nice if this “revolutionary first-person shooter for the hardcore audience” involves realistic gun controllers, which must be operated like real guns, and acts like real guns, feels like real guns, sounds like real guns, but is actually a controller.
    That would be awesome imo~

    Except that there’s no real bullets or any dangerous hazards, ofcourse :)
