Some details emerge about Assassin’s Creed for Wii U

Sitting at a third-party round table meeting at E3, Eurogamer picked up some details about the announced Assassin’s Creed game for Wii U.

It will be made by Ubisoft Quebec, who has mostly worked on handheld ports and parts of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Whether it will be a port or an entirely new game, the publisher would not reveal.

It was revealed that the touchscreen will display an on-screen map and interactive database, make for quick weapon selection, show alternative puzzles, and be used for eagle vision, the game’s “detective mode”.

The game will re-use assets from AC games on the other platforms.
