Video: Assassin's Creed III - Tyranny of King Washington's "Wolf Power" Has Some Bite

It's a dog's life
As a big-budget release, Assassin's Creed III was always destined to have a fair bit of DLC. After a couple of packs featuring extra missions and multiplayer bonuses — the latter's not recommended on Wii U due to the lack of an active online community — it got to the main event, The Tyranny of King Washington. It's a new single-player story that takes place in an alternate reality where George Washington declares himself King and seizes control of the land; it'll be split into three parts, with the first — The Infamy — already available on the Wii U eShop.
As part of this story the main protagonist, Connor (native name Ratonhnhaké:ton), has access to mythical powers — all playing up to the concept that this new reality can bend rules. One ability that's key to part one is Wolf Power, which gives Ratonhnhaké:ton invisibility and a pack of wolves that can be summoned to attack enemies. It's a chance to mix up tactics, in any case.
A new trailer showing off this power is below — rated 18, like the game — so if you're old enough let us know what you think. Do any of you have this title on Wii U, and have you taken the plunge on The Infamy DLC?
