The Wii U has had a chequered history with third-party support, particularly from Ubisoft, and the belated arrival of Watch Dogs feels a little like a final hurrah — whether we'll see many more big-budget multiplatform mature titles on Nintendo's system is certainly a cause of doubt. This title is here, however, and a viable option for...
"The Wii U offers by no means the best way to play Watch Dogs"
Just recently we uploaded a video comparing footage of Watch Dogs on Wii U with Xbox 360 and PS4, to provide an indication of how the Nintendo system's version stacks up. The results highlight a closer parity with the 360 iteration, as expected in light of the performance of previous...
The Wii U edition squares off against the best of past and last gen
After a six month delay the Wii U version of Watch Dogs finally launched last week. We've already shown you what the game looks like and how it uses the Wii U GamePad, but now we're going to illustrate how it stacks up against the other versions out there. We recorded footage of...
Every dog has its day
When Ubisoft said that the Wii U version of open-world action title Watch Dogs was being delayed, it insisted that the additional time would be used to make sure the potential of the Wii U GamePad was fully realised. Fast forward a few months and the game is finally here — but
Yesterday, we posted footage from the Wii U version of Watch Dogs, essentially to prove that it actually, you know, exists. Today, we're back with another — rather more chaotic — helping of in-game footage which shows us driving (badly), hacking (badly), trying to run down pedestrians (badly) and trying to shoot someone (we didn't...
And you thought it would never happen
As much as we'd like to go over the sorry history of the Wii U version of Watch Dogs, we'll resist the urge. All that needs to be said is that the game finally launches on Nintendo's console this week — an event many believed would never happen — and we've captured some footage to prove that it actually...
The dog's been given a bone
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
Base game extras and items purchases reportedly off limit as well
After a series of ongoing release promises and the eventual confirmation that Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs was indeed on its way to Nintendo’s latest home console, new information has surfaced that the Wii U entry will not include any downloadable content. The announcement w
Hopefully it won't be a ruff port
After Ubisoft Mexico let the dog(?) out of the bag, the publisher has now officially confirmed release dates for Watch Dogs on Wii U — it hits North America on 18th November and Europe on 21st November. The development studio responsible for the port is Ubisoft Montreal, which also brought us the Wii U versions...
Throw us a bone, Ubisoft
Watching for Watch Dogs has become a bit of a hobby here at Nintendo Life HQ, taking up the tactic of our canine friends that if you stare at someone — in this case Ubisoft — long enough they'll give in and fetch you that sandbox shooting / hacking game you always wanted. The publishing giant likes to tease before giving...
Following recent news that a solid street date continues to elude the Wii U version of Watch Dogs, a user of Nintendo’s latest home console who goes by the name of DiGiTaLM4N has taken a photo of the Uplay application on the system featuring an updated showcase of Ubisoft’s long-delayed title. If this is in fact new evidence, it is...
Don't worry though, Just Dance 2015 is locked in next month
Ubisoft has revealed its latest UK release schedule, and a solid street date continues to allude the long-delayed Wii U version of Watch Dogs. The open-world action adventure launched on other formats in May, while the Nintendo edition was held back until later in the year. Ubisoft has...
Just in case you haven't played it on every other format by then
As expected, new IP Watch Dogs has sold like hotcakes, marking the dawn of another profitable series for publisher Ubisoft. The game has clearly done the business at retail, even going as far as boosting PS4 sales by 94 percent, and has
How will you spend your cash?
A gaming year is often summed up by crowded, high-profile release windows, typically in November as Holiday shopping and Black Friday insanity sweep stores in multiple territories. While this week isn't quite on that scale, it does see the rather brilliant Mario Kart 8 on Wii U go up against Watch Dogs on, well,...
Perhaps not in the way you'd expect, though
Ubisoft's Watch_Dogs was one of 2013's most anticipated titles, until it got pushed into 2014, that is. While nothing can really remedy the disappointment of missing out on one of the most exciting new games in recent memory, you can still Watch Dogs — quite literally — thanks to the well-intentioned...
