watch_dogs_official_box_art_wii_u

Amazon has just posted the box-art for Ubisoft’s highly anticipated Watch Dogs which is confirmed to be released this holiday season for Nintendo’s latest home console. The box-art is likely to be a placeholder as the game is still a long way from release. Amazon also has a tentative release date of December 31st. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long before Ubisoft announces the official release date.

Update: The box-art is the real deal.

Thanks, Mike S

      • While you, Aeolus and other haters are still here trying to be a troll, Nintendo still will exist, because Nintendo still bothers you, fucking haters.

        By the way, Watch Dogs for Wii U will be the best version, not because of the graphics, but because of the gamepad.

              • Respectfully, I don’t think most people care about someone’s opinion of Nintendo, it’s HOW you say it. For example, if a person said’s in every article, “Nintendo sucks”, then that gets old pretty quick. After I see the same group of people doing that, I start to think, “why are you here if that’s how you feel”?

              • If one said “I don’t like Nintendo because I don’t enjoy their games” (which would be hard to believe, because they have a wide variety of games) or something civilized nobody with half a mind would care and would (hopefully) respect their opinion. It is exactly how Kool C says most of the time though. It is a bitt odd and a little bit more annoying when someone hates for no good reason. They only do it to either fit in, because they are jealous or because they are stupid.

              • This is not the first time that I see you praising the Aeolus speech about Nintendo, and I don’t give a fuck about this, if you think that he never tried to act like a hater, I still don’t give a fuck. Aeolus already spreaded inumerous liars/hate and I and so many others already unmasked his face here on this site, I can prove just showing his comments to you, but I won’t, because I won’t search all the crap that he already said, I have a life.

                But, I will make a question to you: Have you ever seen any comment of him that was about something good about Nintendo on this site that talks about Nintendo (mostly)? a compliment? a hype? a game from Nintendo that he likes or play? There isn’t any good game from Nintendo? anything???

                He says otherwise about be a hater or fanboy, but, he needs to act like a moron in 99% of his comments?

                The new troll “Neutron” (Aeolus disguise? Who knows..) said some shit that I will respond again, while trolls and haters still are on this site, means that Nintendo is alive and bothering them. Just like that.

      • After need for speed using modern PC textures on WIiu and much improved lighting ,and assets , there’s no reason why this won’t too. The launch games were rushed and lazy. The devs wanted to get the games out for day 1 and didn’t polish them or bother to make them look better, With a bit of time , you would think they can make the games look a lot better on wiiu , just like NFS.

            • yup thats almost true, just like Sonic All star Racing Transformed on 3DS, its suffers from frame rate mainly because it has too many graphics and things going on while the Mario Kart 7 almost feels like its running in 60FPS and it has less things going, but it still maintains its creative and unique graphics and design

          • No dude you are misinformed. The Wii U is also capable of running games in native 1080p and @ 60fps and it will be capable of running next-gen engines like Unreal Engine 4, Unity 4, Luminous, Cry-Engine 3, Frostbyte 2 and maybe even the new Capcom engine. Games like MH3 Ultimate and Rayman Legends are already running in native 1080p so what the f**k are you talking about? LMFAO!!! And btw…Sony said that having games in native 1080p and running at 30ps will most likely be their focus.. .so 60fps??? dunno

            Like

            • No , what Macarony 64 is saying is true. Of course the Wiiu can run Native 1080p , the ps3 can , but can it run complex games at native 1080p ? Will developers opt for native 720p so they can squeeze more out of the system ? probably yes.

              The Wiiu will average a resoloution of Native 720p , 30/60FPS with few games running at 1080p 30/60FPS. To me this doesn’t matter , if the Wiiu can run watchdogs at native 720p upscaled to 1080p , then who gives a shit if the PS4 version is native 1080p ? does it really matter ? the difference is unnoticable to the untrained eye.

              Pikmin 3 and wonderfull 101 are 720p 60FPS upscaled to 1080p on Wiiu , confirmed. for example

                • Exactly. Let’s be serious there is probably no way the Wiiu can run watch dogs at 1080p 60FS , Or at least the developers won’t be bothered to push the Wiiu that hard , they will just put a nice 720p , 30FPS job on there with some nice PC/ next gen assets,

    • If the WIiu version has the same gameplay/world/ content and Gamepad features and some better graphics than the ps3 and 360 version , I dunno. You never know bro.

      Picture this – the police cars are storming down the street , you peer down at the gamepad , press the hack button , the bollards pop up and the police cars smash into the bollards as you’ve just looked back up at the tv. Then you switch to of screen play mode without the need of a vita to do so. Then you go on to draw a picture of watchdogs on miiverse.

          • That’s already untrue. The Wii never got franchises such as Asassins creed , Watchdogs , Tekken , Ninja gaiden , Project cars etc. The Wiiu is already a big improvement over the wii on third party support , even though it isn’t yet on par with its rival in that respect.

                • It’s not the actual graphics it’s the fact that the a game might need to be downgraded but gets sold for the full price and it’s a bad feeling to know that someone plays a game while knowing that there is a cheaper and more advanced version out there.

                  By the way Resident Evil 4 on tue PS2 was a pain conpared to the Gamecube version.
                  GC was smooth – PS2 lagged a lot
                  GC had much detail – PS2 lacked a lot of the environment
                  GC had Anti Aliasing and a flicker free image – PS2 was the complete opposite.

                  • that’s the thing. Who knows. It’s a similar situation with the more than possible outcome of ps4 and wii u. If they take their time, fully tweak and fine-tune the game then there won’t be remotely as much of that if at all. We’re already hearing that the Wii U has fantastic hardware and easy to develop for so it’s really up to the Devs to actually put work into it rather than blaming it on the system’s hardware.

                  • but would you mind if that version looked like an enhanced version of the best ps3 and 360 games? they may be able to lower the load by reducing the number of people in the background or the draw distance etc. The graphics shown on the ps4 looked impressive but that doesnt mean the benchmark for wii u games is all of a sudden shit. Everything I saw on the conference aswell looked for some reason like it was too glossy. I dont know whether it was just to showcase enhanced lighting but i didnt like how everything had a sheen to it. It made things look a bit un-natural to me

                  • True. But Nintendo has created a nice little HD platform mainly for exclusives. Multiplats are important but not as important as games like Bayonetta 2 , Lego city , Wonderfull 101 etc….

                    Like

      • The horspower of the Wii U is NOT THE MAIN problem for future multiplats. You can bet all your money that the 720 will use PC parts aswell. That means we have THREE platforms that have the same x86 CPU architecture but the Wii U has a Power PC processor which is made for totally different things. We all know what happens to systems that are totally different in terms of architecture (*cough* PS3 *cough*) than the lead platform. The weaker hardware of the Wii U will start to be a problem one day…..but you don’t need to worry right now because that takes some years until the Wii U is maxed out So CPU & GPU aside we also have the problem with the RAM. PS4 has 4 times the amount of RAM the Wii U has and over 10 times the bandwith of the Wii U DDR3 RAM. So Open world games will LOOK AND RUN TERRIBLE on the Wii U. Also simce the PS4 has x86 architecture and off the shelf PF parts it will be easier to program for than the Wii U because developers can now use all of their PC experience AND the optimiziation experience they will learn.
        AGAIN the problem is NOT the Wii U’s power it’s the amount of RAM and the totally different system architecture.

      • Exactly, I’m with you guys. I’m planning to work too, so i can get a wiiU, only because this great wave of games that are coming.(first and third parties). I have faith this time around in Nintendo, it’s kinda different feeling from the Wii, i knew it’s gonna satisfied Nintendo fans only and casuals, but this time its a whole lot different. WiiU it’s a more open console, better graphics, and i think cost to develop good games with the same resources from this generation will let developers happy; another different take you’ll have with ps4/x720.
        I think at the end of the road, nintendo will be second or first this time around; at the end of 2013 even if they don’t have all that super horsepower that others have; WiiU will accomplished the objective. Bring us more, better games and Fun games.

  14. I’m a little skeptical that they might not try too hard to impress with this on the wii u. I say this from the point of view that they showed this on stage alongside Sony at the ps4 debut and I think Sony are going to want them to say the ps4 version is the definitive version. I think Sony would be pretty pissed if this released at launch for ps4 (which seems likely) and ubisoft were saying the were loads of features unique to wii u (which will be about a year old come Xmas) It would be a kick in the teeth for ps4. I hope I am wrong though and they give it as much love but I just think they won’t want to jeopardize their relationship with Sony.
