Assassin’s Creed III on Wii U will utilise the tablet controller as a link between the game and the Animus, the latest Nintendo Power has apparently said.

The details, transcribed by MyNintendoNews, reports the support between the controller and Animus will mean a persistant and on-screen map will be available on it, while the game is on the TV.

It can also display encyclopedia and database entries can appear on the touchscreen instead of the TV, meaning it won’t break up the flow of the game.

It can also be used for touchscreen weapon selection, enabling the player to change from duel-wielded combat to single on the fly. It can also enable an alternative view for Eagle Vision.

Assassin’s Creed III launches on October 31 worldwide for PS3, 360 and PC. The Wii U version will follow soon afterwards.

Expect a massive blowout on the game on the site from 5pm BST this evening.
