Highly anticipated action title Assassin's Creed III has been confirmed as a day one launch title in the UK, thanks to Ubisoft's own online store.

That means that the publisher will be releasing seven titles for launch, with Rayman Legends, Just Dance 4, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013, Marvel Avengers: Battle For Earth, Sports Connection and ZombiU all being available on store shelves from day one.

We got some hands-on time with this game at our recent visit to Nintendo's European HQ, so keep your eyes on the site for that in the very near future.

Will you be picking up the latest Assassin's Creed epic with your shiny new Wii U console?
