So, earlier this week we reported the not-very-surprising rumour that a new Assassin's Creed game is coming this year, which seemed awfully coincidental. One of our network's team was also gearing up for an Assassin's Creed themed press event; what could it all mean?

Predictably, it means exactly as we thought, with Ubisoft confirming Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, which is pleasingly also coming to Wii U; despite a notable controversy of late, Ubisoft has been showing multi-platform love for Nintendo's system.

You can see the pack-shot pictured, and as the artwork and title suggests we can expect pirates to feature in the adventure. We'll be able to share more details at 5pm British time on Monday 4th March.

So, what do you think of the title and theme, and are any of you Wii U owners interested in picking this up when it arrives? Let us know in the comments below.
