Assassin’s Creed 3 Wii U is “exactly the same game” as PS3 and Xbox 360 versions

Tuesday, 23rd October 2012 21:33 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Assassin’s Creed 3 on Wii U will be “exactly the same game that’s on the other platforms,” says the game’s creative director Alex Hutchinson.

According to the man himself, speaking with GI International, the the Wii U offering isn’t “some radically diminished version, so that’s exciting.”

“It’s always a challenge with new hardware, but it’s also exciting,” Hutchinson said. “I love the smell of new plastic, that day you get home with your new piece of kit. And it’s been a long time since we’ve had a new piece of kit.”

Controls, of course will be a bit different, what with the Game Pad being used to display the in-game map, or equip different weapons.

Assassin’s Creed 3 is out on Wii U November 18 in the US and November 30 in Europe.

    Eh? As opposed to what?

    I should hope so. What about the rumoured 1080p, obviously that’s bullshit or they would be mentioning it…

    It would be nice if Wii U was getting slightly better versions graphically. Im now torn between getting this on the Wii U or 360 (for cheevo’s…)

    Im torn also, if there is no better gfx and the screen on the controller is not a “game changer” in this game AND there is no achievment/trophies why should I buy it for the Wii U?

    And the PS3 version gets exclusive content…

    I wonder if the WiiU version has Uplay.

    Shit I’ve just realised ZombiU is Ubi title and its going to force me to use Uplay.

    Not fussed about content, I’ve never 100% completed an AC game (almost too long for me!), but I was hoping for the best framerate, textures and resolution going to Wii U…

    If not, it’s going to be the 360 version for the pad, cheevo’s and multiplayer!

    Will have to wait for the face off! :)


    If Wii U has basic online but also Uplay and Origin etc… That would suck hairy balls..!

    FIFA for example. :). If this were EA it’d be mostly ACIII but with some of the combat elements still from the previous game so they can add them next time.
