Splinter Cell: Blacklist Headed for the Wii-U

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Headed for the Wii-U. It comes as no surprise that many developers are looking to take advantage of the Wii-U gamepad that helps provide players an additional layer of interaction in a video game, the Wii-U makes some great use of the touch pad in many video games such as Zombi-U and the upcoming, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Directors Cut, which is a console exclusive. Sam Fisher will be getting his feet wet in new waters as he takes on the world of Nintendo in the latest installment of Splinter Cell which is now headed for the Wii-U.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Headed for the Wii-U, Sam Fisher is looking to impress U.

The Wii-U Game pad is a blessing and a curse, it seems that developing a game for the Wii-U now requires the additional efforts of making the use of the game pad itself, Some developers smile at the opportunity to take advantage of this new innovation while others find it cumbersome and just stay on their preferred platform of choice.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is headed for the Wii-U this coming August 20th and 22nd for North America and Europe respectively, the question that is probably in your mind is, how the game pad will play a role in making this stealth action adventure title even more so entertaining? The Wii-U Game pad will let players operate Sam Fisher’s equipment, fight off enemies, switch weapons and navigate environments.


Currently, the lack of mature titles on the Wii-U has been hitting a dry spell as of late, but hopefully Splinter Cell: Conviction and many other games will soon change this trend and encourage other developers to make the bold step into developing their games for the Wii-U.

Hopefully a gameplay trailer or an advert should be up soon and should help cement your decision on buying this game on the console or not, but if the game pad truly does offer a new experience I would highly recommend giving it a go.
