Watch Dogs | Wii U

The Wii U version of Watch Dogs has gone down a rocky road. The open-world, privacy-invading adventure went from not being included in the initial announcement for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC at E3 2012, to being confirmed for the Wii U next to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, to being dramatically delayed to the end of this year, with simultaneous releases for all other previously mentioned platforms this past May. Many wondered about the fate of the Wii U version of Watch Dogs. Well, Ubisoft has finally answered that question on their twitter.

That’s right, for those that still held out for the Wii U version of Watch Dogs, you can pick it up November 20th (Assuming this date holds for both North America and Europe) this year. We’ve yet to even see footage of Watch Dogs running on Wii U and it’s been quiet up until now. If you haven’t picked it up on other systems, are you planning on picking it up the second-screen supporting edition of Watch Dogs or are you deflated in hype by the delay and may have other games to play on Wii U?

About Louis Polite

Louis is a youthful but old-school gamer from New Jersey who is partially of Japanese descent and he's totally frilly! He's been gaming for practically as long as he's been alive with a early-on fascination for Kid Icarus, with his other favorite franchises being Klonoa, the Tales series, Sonic The Hedgehog, Final Fantasy, Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden. He's a total hipster for Nintendo as well appreciating cult classics like Earthbound and Eternal Darkness. His favorite genre is JRPGs, which is an obvious inspiration why he joined the campaign of Operation Rainfall at it's launch. He's a gamer who demands quality and charm out of his games because if he doesn't get it he will let it be known.

    I’ve wanted to try it out on the Wii U for a long time, hopefully there’ll be a demo for it before the release.

      Given they haven’t even released a single screenshot of the Wii U version, I’ll be genuinely surprised if they did.

  • Roberto Ruiz Contreras

    If it follows the likes of Deus Ex: Human Revolution in good ways to use the GamePad then it should be great, but I already have it on the PS4 so it would be really hard for me to pick this up.

  • The Ubisoft Mexico Facebook listed November 18th as the release date last night, but I guess it’s safe to assume it’s the 20th instead.

  • Kroisos

    I was dehyped for this game long before the Wii U version was delayed, so I am thoroughly nonplussed by this news, and am annoyed with Ubi only on general principle, not because I personally was affected.

    I look forward to how surprised Ubi execs are when a six month old game competing against one of Nintendo’s top franchises fails to sell.

    Damn!!!Talk about doin Nintendo wrong.

    I’m still waiting for a graphical comparison. Will it be closer to the PS3? or the PS4 graphics?
