Since it’s announcement everyone has been talking about the Wii U and before the console itself has a solid release date, Ubisoft has already thrown themselves head and shoulders into the new console race with a slew of titles set for the new console when it finally arrives in time for the Holiday season this year.
Ubisoft took the oppurtunity to showcase how the Wii U can be used to do some great things by showing off the sequel to the hugely successful Rayman Origins using the console live on stage. Having several ways of controlling different characters, especially with the accuracy that a touch screen gives, has really made a difference to what developers can do with their games.
Rayman also showed that Nintendo are catching up on the multiplayer side of things with the game confirmed to offer up to five player coop in a single game. Not too shabby for such an old series and a console that many thought might still lack.
The Avengers: Battle For Earth
All we have to go one for this is a relatively short trailer but if this gets done right then we could be in for one of the few superhero/movie games that has been made and doesn’t suck. The trailer showcases not only popular heroes from the movies but spans across the whole league of super heroes and villans we have come to know and love. As well as introducing Spidey and Venom to the mix, we also got to see some of X-men tearing it up across the city.
With Nintendo seming to play catch up pretyy well when it comes to the Wii U, if this game gives us multiple story lines in an open world and nails the multiplayer to the letter, then this could not only be a good superhero game, but i could be the best super hero game ever made.
Ever since the Dead Island trailer, we all knew that zombie games had got something to show when it comes to original trailers and the first game announced as a Wii U exclusive definately isn’t better, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t good. Once again, absolutely no major details have been announced, but from watching the trailer it looks as though his could be an interesting entry to the genre and it’s going to be set in rainy ol’ London Town.
Along with these three titles, there was also this interesting shot of more games we can expect from Ubisoft for Nintendo’s latest console, hopefully we will see some more over the next few days when Nintendo give there presentation and show off the Wii U in a bit more depth.
