I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty darn excited for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U. Sure, their E3 showing wasn’t that thrilling and third party support could be much better, but I’m still anxious to get my hands on the new console. While we haven’t learned much over the past month or so, details are slowing trickling out and it looks like Ubisoft just gave everyone their first look at Wii U boxmart.
Amazon Canada originally posted this Assassin’s Creed III image the other other day. Yea, I guess it really isn’t that big of a deal – all games have boxes and these ones really aren’t that unique – but whenever something Wii U related pops up we get a little more excited for Wii U’s release.
Turns out Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III box art wasn’t just a fluke. Shortly after that cover hit the web, cover art for two more Wii U games from Ubisoft showed up – Avengers: Battle For Earth and Just Dance 4 – sporting the same light blue Wii U badge at the top.
So, are these the real deal? Well, looks like Gametrailers got the official word from a Ubisoft PR rep who said, “Why yes, the Wii U box art you sent is legit; in fact, it’s too legit to quit.”
We’re still waiting on Nintendo to reveal an official release date for the Wii U, but according to Amazon.ca Assassin’s Creed III will be released on October 30th, followed by Just Dance 4 on November 15 and Avengers: Battle for Earth on November 20.
