E3 2013: It's the Ubisoft Presentation - Live!

Here we go... shall we see what Ubisoft have in store?

So, E3 is upon us, and welcome to our first live stream of the year from the expo. Why Ubisoft? For one simple reason, it's a publisher and developer that's shown plenty of support for Wii U over the past year. There are some high-profile multi-platform titles coming to the system that'll be shown in greater detail — such as Watch_Dogs and Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag — but the company is also promising some surprises.

With PS4 and Xbox One on the horizon, will Ubisoft bring us any Wii U exclusives? Perhaps the odds are long, but stranger things have happened and the company has gone out of its way in recent times to suggest that Nintendo will revive the system's sales performance.

So, with that optimism in mind, we'll be watching and hoping; at the very least we'll see more of some of the year's hottest games. Oh, and this is the Nintendo Life debut of our new live text format, so we hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for watching, we'll see you tomorrow for Nintendo Direct!

Tom Clancy's The Division, an online open world RPG title for Xbox One and PS4. Another miss for Wii U.

THIS looks quite impressive.

Demo is running on a PS4.

Some interesting gameplay here, surely this is made for Wii U with a tablet feature?

This is one heck of a back story, but what is it?

Trials Fusion not confirmed for Wii U, oh dear.

In game footage, hooray!

That music is Sigur Rós, the best thing of the conference, in my opinion.

And now it's Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, brand new trailer.

this is the game Tom has been looking forward to, Just Dance 2014!

This trailer was released earlier today. If you didn't see it on our YouTube channel, that may mean you haven't subscribed yet. You know what to do...

And now we come to Watch_Dogs, let's see what this brings.

Well, this is a long demo...

GO STEVE!

Online persistent world, may be the killer from a Wii U perspective. Chins up everyone!

It appears that next gen is always about racing games... we've got lots going up against each other.

Well well, The Crew looks impressive.

Yves Guillemot is on the scene, will Wii U feature in this "next-gen" segment?

Ubisoft's going for the "Check US out, we're EDGY" approach again.

DIGITAL CRACK?!

Steady on, Nigel!

Ubisoft have a great CGI department...

Now we're looking at The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot... seems to be a PC title.

I'm guessing this one isn't for Wii U?

Onto Splinter Cell: Blacklist, enemies will be killed sneakily.

So, like last year, this could be a bit x-rated...

We've got an excessive amount of rock music at the moment... and the YouTube stream is down.

If you're getting a 502 on the video, try refreshing the page... or waiting for Google to fix something!

I'm not really sure what to expect from this, I guess it'll be quite like the EA show that's just finished... hope we see some new games for Nintendo consoles though!

We would suggest that you all start predicting wildly in the live comments, but you already are...

So what are the odds on a Wii U exclusive here? Not too outrageous, I'd suggest, Ubisoft's been surprisingly enthusiastic in recent comments about the system. Still, expectations in check and all that!

We predict a long section on... Watch_Dogs. Yes! You heard it here first!

Good afternoon, good evening... Ubisoft presentation will commence in just under 55 mins.
