Assassin’s Creed Wii U won’t be a port

Remember that sizzle reel that Nintendo showed off at E3 will all of that 3rd party support? Well the thing about those games is that many of them will have been out on other consoles for almost a year by the time the Wii U hits the market. Not Assassin’s Creed on Wii U, however. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says that the Wii U title will not be Revelations, but instead be a title for “the future.” 

Swedish video game site recently had a sit down with Guillemot to talk about his impressions of Wii U and the outspoken CEO had lots to say about Nintendo’s new console. “I love it,” Guillemot tells AftonBladet. “It is a very, very interesting new concept with a revolutionary control. We need it to handle everything that comes now. Social games in HD and this screen will help enormously with that.”

Interesting that Guillemot would talk about social gaming for Wii U considering social games need a stable online interface to be successful. A sign that Nintendo plans to bring it when it comes to online play next generation? I sure hope so, but judging by the way the launch of the 3DS eShop was handled, I won’t be holding my breath. Prove me wrong Nintendo!

    I am glad that it’s not a port as I will be playing Revelations on the PS3 won’t even bother a year later on the Wii U if it’s the same game.

    All I gotta say, is that is sticking it to the Sony/Microsoft fanboys. >:3

    Ubisoft seems to genuinely love the WiiU and hopefully it’s true so that it can actually have some support. Nintendo said they want to re-haul the online system already. Ubisoft isn’t saying Assassins Creed will be a launch title so online when the WiiU launches might not happen. (just based on the 3DS shop being down)

    People hear that and assume it’s a good thing. I remember when they said they were making ghost recon advance warfighter for wii and it turned out to be a on-rails shooter for the kids
