Whilst, im not too thrilled on blacklist.(no ironside but merc v spy makes decision difficult to make.)

Im still happy to see ubi put some backing into the wiiU.

Can't wait till I hear the excuses about the haters.

Buy for Spies vs Mercs and Co op alone. Singleplayer is actually the additional content in this game for me and I think the purist mode will be fun. Voice will throw me off may just turn off sound of voice and play chaos theory voice overs
This is going to be the best version. I mean Splinter Cell has some really cool gadgets and it will be really interesting to see how the wiiu pad is utilized.

I agree utilization will be interesting,but best version I don't know about that. Holding that huge pad and playing a stealth game is just awkward. I hope to see this on PS4 as well

Why would holding the Wii U controller for a stealth game be weird? Do stealth games do something differently than other games?

Games like this is where Nintendo really stands out because of the huge amount of functionality in the screen for the controller. Who knew a touch screen could make so much of a difference. :p

Ubisoft is set up to rake in some dough on the Wii U since some of their competitors are passing at this early state.

I actually thought this game was an Xbox 360 exclusive the way they were promoting it at last years E3. Anyway I'm not really a fan of the new Splinter Cell games, the old ones were awesome though. Still it's good to see third party support for the WiiU.

if ubisoft decides to cancel the wii u version like other game companies have done, then the nintendo fans will say "we dont need it anyway", lol

so far only one game has been cancelled, and quite frankly, every version should have been cancelled, not just for the WiiU, because Aliens CM is one of the worst games in recent memory.

So yeah... try harder

Ubisoft always released splinter cell games for nintendo consoles.. Nothing new here
gedden7  +   960d ago
Spy, Stealth, SciFi, Inventory, RPG style games are completely perfect for the Wii U and the Gamepad! I praise Ubisoft for all of the support. Nintendo really needs it for the Wii U! I wonder if they'll be any differences between the versions "ie most wanted, dues ex" I so rather buy this for the Wii U, GAMEPAD ALONE!

Wii U getting a 3rd party game. Let's hope Nintendo gamers actually buy it

Anyone have any idea why Nintendo's stock value has jumped 10% this morning?

2 months later...

"Unfortunately, Splinter Cell Blacklist for Wii U has been canceled. We feel there is not enough support and isn't worth it"
Theyellowflash30  +   960d ago
Keep telling yourself that. LOL!

Ubisoft is giving Nintendo 100% Support on Wii U
