Today Ubisoft has confirmed via press release that Assassin's Creed III will be coming to Wii U. As you may recall, an Assassin's Creed game was promised for Nintendo's next console during E3 2011, but you may not have guessed the third, full Assassin's Creed game would be the one. I sure didn't!
Then again, I'm a true Nintendo fan, which means my spirit is crushed and I no longer believe. You more optimistic fans who totally saw this coming. I applaud you for being right, but frankly I don't know how you do it ... I no longer dare to dream.
Promised "for the end of 2012" on the Wii U, Assassin's Creed III is also expected for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC on October 30, 2012.
