Strap yourself in

Ubisoft's confirmed it'll show off its Wii U games at its E3 press event on 4th June, ahead of Nintendo's conference on 5th June.

Ubi hasn't said specifically which Wii U games it'll show off — no surprise there — but with half a dozen titles in development including Rayman Legends and Assassin's Creed III there should be plenty to see.

We'll bring the conference to you live with an embedded video on 4th June. Find out what time it'll be where you are:

Monday 4th June 2012
3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern / 11pm UK / Tuesday 5th June 12am Central European / 8am Australian Eastern Standard Time

There'll also be multiple live Nintendo E3 2012 videos for you to watch, which is good, isn't it?

UBISOFT® REVEALS E3 LINEUP FULL OF BLOCKBUSTER GAMES AND SURPRISES

London, UK — May 23, 2012 — Today, Ubisoft announced that it will kick off the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2012 with an invitation-only press conference at the Los Angeles Theater at 3 p.m. PDT, June 4. The press conference will feature demonstrations and trailers of Ubisoft’s upcoming lineup of franchise hits, including games for the new Nintendo Wii U™, as well as digital titles, special guests and surprise announcements.

Following the press conference, E3 attendees can visit Ubisoft’s booth — #1023, located in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center — to see and play the company’s latest titles. Games available at the booth will include Assassin’s Creed® III, Far Cry® 3, Rayman® Legends, Rocksmith™ and many more. The finale of the ShootMania Marathon, an e-sport competition based on Ubisoft’s ShootMania®: Storm also will be broadcast from the booth on at 11 a.m. PDT, June 6.

“This year’s E3 promises to be one of our biggest and best yet,” said Yves Guillemot, Founder and CEO of Ubisoft. “We’re showcasing the strongest, most competitive collection of core titles we’ve had in years, innovative new games for new platforms and a broad lineup that has something for everyone.”

In a first, Ubisoft is inviting gamers to ask questions to its teams on Uplay®, Ubisoft’s online service dedicated to enhancing the experience of players across games and platforms. The best questions will be selected by one of the guest hosts and asked live during the press conference. Ubisoft also is sending eight select Uplay members to E3, where they will interview teams backstage, preview fans’ favourite games and provide video reports from the show floor. Finally, the Assassin’s Creed III® and Far Cry® 3 teams released two Road To E3 videos showcasing their preparation for the event, and are inviting fans to post their questions on their respective Facebook pages.

Those unable to attend E3 in person can watch the Ubisoft press conference live on YouTube, or embed the live feed on their own sites. Exclusive backstage videos and free content will also be available on http://uplay.com/e3.

I'm not expecting any surprises.

Just Dance 4, Rayman Legends, Assassins Creed 3, that Monster Freaks game and Far Cry 3 sounds about right.

Would be nice to see something like Red Steel 3 though.

I'm really excited to see more of Killer Freaks from Outer Space. The asymmetrical multiplayer mode in that game sounds pretty awesome.

@19Robb92 It's Killer Freaks :P

Hopefully there will be no Mr Caffeine this year. I'm fed up of hearing about Tom 'Culancy' games. >:(

@Shiryu
Not really. It just says demonstrations and trailers.

It's most probably just some guys standing on a stage with a WiiU controller showing some of the already known WiiU features being used.

@Sony_70 No, that's not right.

Monday is Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony (in that order iirc)
Tuesday is Nintendo

Then there are no more press conferences because the actual show floor is open.

UbiSoft's will definitely be a conference to look forward too. UbiSoft is one of those companies that brings quality games, and isn't afraid to be alil different while doing it, that what I like about them. Most other third party developers are barely worth mentioning, especially since a good chunk of them only make SHOOTERS....blehh...

The time is off by 1 hour for the eastern coast. "3 p.m. PDT" translates to 18h EDT, not 17h.

I doubt there's anything they're yet to announce that I'd care about as the only Ubisoft games I care about are the Rayman games and Rayman legends has already beena announced for Wii U.

I'm with you. I brought that up a few weeks ago and was shot down by another person on the blog. I still say it could happen because using the tablet as Jade's camera/disc weapon/etc... would be pretty sweet and Ubisoft knows it.

@Sony_70 It's interesting to see that Nintendo has a whole day for themselves. That way, they don't have to worry about other companies "intruding" on their fun. Lol.

Don't Nintendo usually go 1st for announcements though? Then Sony & Microsoft do there stuff some hours after or the next day after? Strange that Nintendo is going last but maybe I'm misremembering it, but at least it means Nintendo will end the conferences with a bang & everyone will have Nintendo in the forefront of their minds since it was the last conference they saw. Unless something goes horribly wrong Nintendo have got this E3 in the bag :D
