Future support from Ubisoft rests on the next 6 months. Success from Rayman Legends, Assassin Creed 4, Watch Dogs and Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be vital if Ubisoft will support the Wii U.


Gamingbolt had the opportunity to talk Maxime Beland creative director for Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Maxime explained that the Wii U gamepad is the perfect fit for the game.


“Splinter Cell Blacklist as a game is a great fit for the Wii U. What’s fun and interesting is that Sam Fisher has an OPSAT in the game that he uses in the same way players can use the Wii U gamepad when playing Splinter Cell Blacklist. Sam uses his OPSAT to control gadgets like the triorotor, which the player can also do using the gamepad. I’m proud of the fact that our Wii U implementation makes sense in the Splinter Cell universe, it feels like a really natural platform for Splinter Cell Blacklist”


Maxime continued:


“Ubisoft Toronto is looking at new technology and seeing in which ways their features make sense to use for our brands. As I mentioned earlier, using the Wii U gamepad for Splinter Cell Blacklist makes sense. It’s an extension for what Sam does in the game. It’s great feeling when new technology immerses the player into gameplay in a fun and realistic way.”


Fingers cross, that the Wii U will be getting the definitive of the game. I for one, will be buying the game day one. Please, support 3rd party games that deserve a purchase.
