Ubisoft games that are being developed for Nintendo’s Wii U include:

Assassin’s Creed III: Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Connor, the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Gamers become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date.

Just Dance 4: Just Dance 4 is the fourth installment in the world’s No. 1 dance game franchise. This title features more than 40 new tracks, ranging from chart-topping Billboard hits to classic dance party tracks from artists like Rihanna, One Direction, P!nk, The B-52’s, and Flo Rida. Exclusive to Wii U is a new Puppet Master Mode where up to 5-players can play together. In the new mode, the operator of the Wii U GamePad can switch dance routines and create choreographies that are performed by the other four players in real-time.
