Maybe no company's speaking to as many different strata of gamers as Ubisoft right now. You want hardcore action games? They'll serve up the Assassin's Creed, Rainbow Six and/or Prince of Persia series. You want a goofy party game? Choose from the Just Dance, Michael Jackson and Black-Eyed Peas franchises. Think that your console should be helping you get into shape for what you've paid for it? A slew of Your Shape experiences await you.

And now that a subcategory of tablet/drawing games starting to bubble up—thanks to THQ's uDraw hardware and games— UbiSoft's going after that, too. In a surprise announcement, the French publisher's revealed that it'll be rolling out a new tablet peripheral for the Wii called Drawsome. It's a 6.5x5-inch screen with a docking port for the Wii-mote that also houses a stylus. The initial offering will also bundle in two games—Drawsome Artist and Drawsome Sketch Quest—along with the hardware. Artist acts as a learn-to-draw tutorial while Sketch Quest is an action/adventure game. The Amazon listing for the bundle cites a $59.99 price tag and Ubi says the whole kaboodle will be available starting on December 6th.
