Assassin's Creed III Trailer

Shhh...

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed III was one of the publisher's biggest titles of its E3 conference this year, and while we didn't see any Wii U-specific footage the game is shaping up very nicely indeed. The trailer might all be CGI but it should give you a taste of what to expect from Connor's trip onto Wii U later this year. It's one of eight...

Not content with showing off more of Rayman Legends for Wii U, Ubisoft's also lifted the lid on ZombiU, a Wii U-exclusive zombie-based survival horror.

Battle for Earth

The film's already out — good, isn't it? — but there's no video game tie-in for The Avengers. Not yet anyway, as Ubisoft's just announced Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth for Wii U.

Ubisoft Wants to Be Top Dog on Wii U

Sound familiar?

Ubisoft will stick to its tactic of big launch support for new consoles when Wii U launches later this year. Last year Ubi launched six games alongside 3DS and, back in 2006, released half a dozen games on the same day as Wii. That plan helped it become the biggest third-party publisher on both formats — though Ubi's Wii success...
