Watch Dogs Wii U Screen

Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs for Wii U is due out next month, and new details about the long-awaited release continue to surface. After a series of ongoing promises, an eventual confirmation that the game was in fact on its way to Nintendo’s latest home console, and follow-up news that the Wii U entry would not include any downloadable content, the latest update reveals surprisingly positive information.

The Watch Dogs companion application has recently received an update making it compatible with the Nintendo version of the game. By using this app, players will be able to play the game with friends on the Wii U or any other console / PC. Race and Free Ride modes are both supported as well.

Watch Dogs for Wii U is due out in North America on 18th November and Europe on 21st November. Let us know in the comments how you feel about this latest news, and if you will be picking up the Wii U iteration of the game on release.
