Remember that unannounced Wii U game that was teased in August? Well, apparently, it’s going to be revealed this Thursday during Nintendo’s Wii U Preview event in New York City. GameTrailers Editor-in-Chief Shane Satterfield claims that the game should come out this year, and we should find out what it is exactly on September 13th.
After playing Assassin’s Creed III on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, GameTrailers editor-in-chief Shane Satterfield claims that the game looks best on Nintendo’s upcoming console and includes added functionality. Satterfield suggests that consumers consider purchasing the Wii U versions of Assassin’s Creed III and a possible launch title that hasn’t been revealed.
“I’m definitely getting Assassin’s Creed III. And like Mike said, I’ve seen pretty much all three versions at this point. To me, the Wii U version looks the best. It also has added functionality, so that would probably be the one game I’d buy with the Wii U, would be Assassin’s Creed III.”
“There’s another game that might make launch that hasn’t been announced yet that maybe I would buy for it. But I can’t really mention that.”

Activision’s Eric Hirshberg has revealed to GameTrailers that the upcoming Skylanders Giants will be coming to Wii U. A Wii and Nintendo 3DS version of the game have been announced for a few months, but the Wii U version was recently announced during last week’s E3. There is no release date announced for Wii U’s version of Skylanders Giants but the game is scheduled to release later this year for the 3DS and Wii.

Nintendo software producer Katsuya Eguchi was recently interviewed by GameTrailers, where he revealed the reason as to why the Wii U GamePad’s touchscreen is single-touch rather than multi-touch. Cost is a factor but Eguchi says, “The number one priority we focus on in considering the touch interface is the precision of where you touch and the precision of how that’s reflected in the game.” While both multi-touch and single-touch screens have their pros and cons, which do you prefer for gaming?
