Assassin’s Creed 3 on the Wii U is a third person action/stealth game set during the American Revolution. The game follows a new protagonist called Connor Kenway, while the present day character of Desmond will return. The Assassin’s Creed 3 Wii U version will feature similar gameplay to other editions, while the Wii U GamePad tablet controller will offer additional features and controls. Because of the Wii U’s superior hardware, Assassin’s Creed 3 is expected to look better compared to other versions, according to rumors.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Wii U features and gameplay

Assassin's Creed 3 Wii U
Assassin’s Creed 3 Wii U features the same open-world gameplay that has been a hallmark in the series. Once again, the game is a third person action title that alternates between stealth and combat. While the basic character controls and combat will remain the same, the Wii U version will incorporate the GamePad to offer additional features. Such features include better inventory management, mission selection, organization of your followers, and more. While the tablet adds additional elements to the game, players will be able to use a regular Wii U Pro controller as well.

Assassin’s Creed 3 on the Wii U will receive several DLC packs which will be made available through the Wii U eShop. The DLC is expected to be the same as on other consoles.

  • charles

    you know I’ve never ever played any assasins creed games so I’m expecting great gaming out of this.

  • Clem

    Here’s hoping that the Wii U version will contain the patch which alleviates some of the bugginess on-disk. It’s pretty silly that they had to release a patch on the same day the game came out for Xbox and Playstation 🙁

  • Bazinga

    Connor kick ass of ezio

  • Lonestar

    I got it to day

    • Applesaucejaxon

      I picked up a copy today, too. This is making the wait until Sunday even worse.
      The same thing happened just before the Gamecube launch. That time I got a pumpkin spice controller along with Super Monkey Ball and Wave Race about 3 weeks early. It didn’t help the cause.

    • Fahd Al Zarooni

      NICE, hows he gameplay, I am going to get it soon from London XD

  • kyuubikid213

    We can play this exclusively with the GamePad, can’t we? I’m looking forward to that feature the most with the Wii U.

  • Noteak


  • i dont think the wii u got a DLC

  • Levibuscus

    I hate how people play this game without having played the others, there is a lot of information, people, locations, and events from other AC games that this one references, and you wont understand most of it. Trust me, I’m an Engineer
