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.
