Splinter Cell Wii U Details No Longer Blacklisted

Splinter Cell Blacklist Wii U

The first details about the Wii U version of Splinter Cell: Blacklist have been uncovered thanks to retailers Amazon and GameStop.

Due out August 20th, Splinter Cell: Blacklist on the Wii U had only been confirmed a short while ago. Over the weekend, several retailers divulged the first details about the Nintendo version, and we were able to learn just what will help Blacklist on the Wii U stand out from the other iterations.

According to Amazon, the Wii U version will feature unique GamePad support. The GamePad will somehow allow “faster reaction times,” which players will be able to use when swapping loadouts, or marking enemies for execution. The GamePad will also work as Sam’s OpSat, and will grant you full control of items like the tri-rotor drone with touch- and motion-based input. Players will also be able to view leaderboards and track the progress of their friends through the GamePad.

Nintendo’s Wii U does afford developers some interesting opportunities for control, and now that more titles are arriving that aren’t just ports of older titles, the experimentation should lead to some interesting differences between platforms. The Wii U is still struggling to find its feet however, but strong third-party support could help turn that around. Whether Splinter Cell: Blacklist is going to be one of those games remains to be seen.
