How Assassin's Creed III Will Work on the Wii U

As bizarre as it seems to be thinking of a proper Assassin's Creed game appearing on a Nintendo console, it's going to happen later this year when Assassin's Creed III is released on the Wii U. Leading many people to wonder, how's it going to take advantage of the console's unique control pad?

The latest issue of Nintendo Power apparently has the answer, My Nintendo News transcribing a story from the latest issue that explains how the Wii U's pad will become your own private Animus.

While some aspects of the game's controls make it clear the Wii U touch screen will be this year's DS menu screen, such as tapping to change weapons, other things like the ability of the large individual screen to operate as somewhere to read database entries on the fly sound more promising.

No mention yet of a Betsy Ross mini-game involving stitching across the touch screen.
