Nintendo fans rejoicing at the thought that the Nintendo Wii U might finally mean a Nintendo console that welcomes third party blockbusters in lockstep with competing consoles might want to reel it in. The Wii version of Assassin’s Creed, for instance, is not going to be the Xbox360/PS3 Revelations with tablet support slapped on. Or without tablet support, for that matter.
“Our next edition of Assassin’s will be in a Wii U version,” according to Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot, interviewed by Aftonbladet, a Swedish website.
“Assassin’s Creed: Revelations?”
“No, not Revelations. For the future.”
“So it’s Assassin’s Creed III? Or is it something else?
“I can’t tell you that.”
So, you could call the Wii U game the Desmond and Revelations the Altair/Enzo of the franchise in a sense. Which isn’t really boding that well for it, to be honest.
