Splinter Cell: Blacklist Wii U

The rumored Wii U version of Splinter Cell: Blacklist is real. Ubisoft has confirmed that the action-stealth game will hit the Wii U on the same day as the PS3 and Xbox 360 this August.

Blacklist is set after the events of Splinter Cell: Conviction. Covert operative Sam Fisher is now the leader of Fourth Echelon, an elite group performing missions for the President of the United States. The newly formed Fourth Echelon must stop a group of 12 terrorists from carrying out a series of attacks on the United States.

The Wii U version, first outed by a retailer, makes use of the GamePad's unique capabilities. You can use the touchscreen to switch between weapons, utilize gadgets and more. In the first screenshot, Fisher is looking through a keyhole in a door. What he sees through the keyhole is visible on the GamePad's touchscreen.

Last year, Ubisoft said that they want to be the top third-party publisher on the Wii U. Blacklist's Wii U version is just the latest example of that effort. Assassin's Creed 4 and Watch Dogs, two of their other big 2013 releases, are also coming to that console as well.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist will arrive on August 20th in North America, August 22nd in EMEA territories and August 23rd in the UK.
