Assassin's Creed 3 is in development for Wii U. Yes, the next game in the critically acclaimed action series - to be set during the American Revolution - will be released on Nintendo's new console.
Nintendo announced that an Assassin's Creed game would be coming to Wii U at last year's E3 conference, but only today has it been confirmed that Nintendo fans will be able to play Assassin's Creed 3 on their Wii U console when it's released.
The game is set for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on October 31st but the Assassin's Creed Wii U release date has yet to be confirmed.
Set during the late 18th century, Assassin's Creed 3 Wii U stars Ratohnaketon, a new hero of Native American and English heritage.
However, he adopts the name Connor to become the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Playing as Connor, you become an assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny.
The events in Assassin's Creed 3 Wii U take place throughout the American Revolutionary War, taking you from from the frontier to bustling colonial towns and the battlefields where George Washington's Continental Army fought the British Army.
