GameStop lists Watch Dogs for Wii U (UPDATE 2)

This goes hand-in-hand with the print-out that we had last week...



This was found by reader Spirit_of_Tidus via email. GameStop sent out an email saying the game was up for preorder, with the Wii U version listed in that as well.

UPDATE 2 - Amazon preorders up as well (thanks Jones!)

UPDATE - Best Buy has added a Wii U SKU as well. Thanks to Jspoon for the heads up!

I have a confession: I'm much more excited for this than Rayman Legends, so if it comes out on Wii U Ubisoft comes out ahead in my book. If not, I'll settle for PS3. If they bump development to PS4 and I can't buy it at all, I'm never buying another Ubisoft game again. Until Beyond Good and Evil 2; let's be honest--I won't boycott that game.

@Taxidous:

I o agree that Ubi asked for it.... Also that MS deal with Ubi... Seems too legit not to be true. If we got the game now, we should be good.

@Kroisos :

What? So you are getting it if it comes to WiiU. If not you will get it for PS3, Never for the PS4, but you won't purchase a Ubi game ever again except BGAE2?

That didn't make much sense...

... But then why not mention it had a Wii U version at it's first showing? :?

Did they just not want a [totally] Wii U Dominated conference at E3 last year?

Just curious here. What was wrong with the port?

The only thing I can think of is how Ubisoft is late with DLC on Wii U for all their games. And I 100% it. Occasional glitch? Yeah, but so did all the platforms. Nothing game breaking.

Edit: I heard it's hard to get a multiplayer match going for some reason, but I haven't touched the multiplayer yet.

A-ha! So it's not filled with crappy bugs, compared to other versions from what you know,Triforce Of The Gods?...

Well, I guess with a good gaming PC most games are better in that sense.

What about Wii U features... Off-TV play I know, but anyhing else?

Never played it on other versions. Not saying it has less bugs, just saying it didn't seem to have enough to seem like there were tons that came about just because it was ported to Wii U.

Other than Off-TV play, you can choose to clear the HUD off of the TV since it's all on the GamePad. Menus and cutscenes are shown on both TV and GamePad with inventory being touch screen enabled. So standard third party effort, but that's all you really need.

Definitely compensation for delaying Rayman Origins and personally I think they made good on it. Lets just hope this becomes a trend.

If the Wii U version wasn't set in stone at the time (I doubt it was) I don't think they'd want to announce it yet.

Although this likely wasn't planned as a port due to the backlash from delaying Rayman, delaying Rayman is ironically a perfect example of how not all ports are planned ahead of time. Sometimes they wait until the game is about to go Gold before deciding.

I played on the 360 and WiiU and didn't see any difference. My only issue was that the joysticks on the gamepad seemed to have too much of a deadzone for that game. I had to tilt the joystick quite a bit just to get my guy to move. Oh and i think i tried and tried to get a match online and never did. My internet usually has a closed nat and i have trouble with online games so i figured it was a mix of my internet and lack of players that kept me from finding a match.

All is forgiven Ubisoft, and for the record there is nothing wrong with AC3 Wii U. It's the best looking version and it plays great, just the multiplayer is a pain in the ass some times like other people have pointed out.

Zero people in the multiplayer, The good DLC for this game is still not out on wiiu when it is already out on the other systems, it crashed like 10 times when I played through it(of course, this could just be the hardware). Achives don't bother me in ubi games, because those asshats don't put achievements in their PC games either (beyond the chapter Uplay ones).

then once we get to games with the next gen systems as the lead platform, I don't want to play the gimped version.

It's looking more and more like it could happen. Not setting hopes too high but like many have already said, watching the demo this just looks like it was made specifically for gamepad play.

I'm gonna say that's the hardware. Don't really remember it crashing in ACIII, but I've had it crash on me several times during Darksiders II. Also the browser crashed on me around launch.

I'm sure it was, I was so pissed off, it once crashed my system 4 times in an hour. no other game has crashed for me, and in the system menus I've only had it happen a few times.

Now this is cool! I'd buy it if it turns out well, once I have my Wii U.

Edit: Or maybe not... just rewatched the trailer, I had forgotten about the dudebro-ey violence :/

How exciting, I'm sure it will be just like all the other 3rd party ports. Full of choppy frame rate and inferior visuals.

Well let's give them a chance first. And it's good that they had older games to test the waters and learn, so the technical stuff should get better now. But I still don't know what type of game it is exactly.
