New Assassin’s Creed 3 Wii U screenshots

Ubisoft is bringing their biggest franchise, Assassin’s Creed 3, to Nintendo’s new console later this year. The French publisher just released a set of new Wii U screenshots, showing just how the GamePad will be used in the game. Actually, most of the screenshots show the tablet controller used as a map/scanner of some sort, displaying objects of interest, enemies, and other details. The game will be a Wii U launch title when the console hits the store shelves on November 18. We also got a brand new trailer of the game, showcasing some Wii U specific features. As far as we can tell from the screenshots and trailer, the game looks slightly better than its counterparts on other consoles.
