Pro tip, don't put out a display before a reveal

Earlier today we shared a sneaky snapshot from the New York Wii U event, as good as confirming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for Wii U. Now the cat — which we knew was in the bag — has finally been let out and shown off near the end of the event.

It was confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will arrive in November, though it's not clear whether it'll be there for the North American launch on 18th November. There was a live demo on stage that showed multiplayer, with visuals that were thoroughly decent if not spectacular; full screen multiplayer was shown with one player exclusively on the GamePad screen, while support for Wii Remote and Nunchuk was confirmed. We're going to assume that the Wii U Pro Controller will also be compatible.

Will Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 attract gamers to Wii U, and will it sell well on the system in the launch period? Time will tell, but it certainly won't do any harm.
