Speaking with GI.biz, Alex Hutchinson, Assassin's Creed III's creative director, has stated that the Wii U version of the Assassin's Creed sequel will be exactly the same in content and performance when compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
"I'm super excited whenever we demo the Wii U. It is exactly the same game that's on the other platforms." Said Hutchinson to GamesIndustry.biz, "And I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's been a long time since I've shipped a game on more than three platforms where you could say it?s all the same. It's not like some radically diminished version, so that's exciting."
The Wii U version of the game will allow players to take the new console's GamePad to display the in game map and quickly equip different weapons.
Hutchinson added "It's always a challenge with new hardware, but it's also exciting," Hutchinson said. "I love the smell of new plastic, that day you get home with your new piece of kit. And it's been a long time since we've had a new piece of kit."
Assassin's Creed III launches on the Wii U on November 30th.
