A number of details on how Assassin’s Creed III will make use of Wii U’s touch-enabled controller have surfaced, via the latest issue of Nintendo Gamer mag.
All in all, it looks to clear up a lot of space from the game itself, with things like the map shown on it instead your telly.
The database entries that pop every now and then can be shown on the smaller screen as well, along with with weapon selection and an alternate view for Eagle Vision (controllable thanks to the built in accelerometer).
And then there’s the reading part; the controller can display the AC encyclopedia. Something to do on those long parkour runs through the forest, perhaps?
Assassin’s Creed III will be out on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 this October. The Wii U version, as the console itself, lacks a release date for now.
