Before 2011 was done once and for all, I gave one final hint for the new year, by stating that there was a very big title in development for both Wii U and 3DS, that it was a shocker, a crowd pleaser, and that I would try and reveal it in January. The truth is (as I stated in that article), there were a few surprise titles I knew about, but this one I felt was the biggest…as it’d be crossing both platforms.
I was under the impression on New Year’s Eve that there were at least two different pairs of games and that both would appear on each of Nintendo’s systems. It’s the reason for the hint, “crowd pleaser”, because one of the games I was referring to was Assassin’s Creed III (which later was confirmed to be a Wii U title after all). Not being able to confirm whether a 3DS build was in fact a part of Ubisoft’s plan as well, I chose not to launch the story before anyone else, but still reported on it.
The other game and in fact, arguably the more important one for many, is real and has been confirmed to me. There is a Wii U title in mind and a 3DS one. It’s been a long time coming in validating this story, but I’ve finally done it. I won’t give a target month of when I’ll share it like I did last time, because of an NDA. I’m sorry for giving you nothing, but this isn’t just a leak from a source…the same reason for not even a hint. I owed you this much though, for whatever it’s worth. Good times are coming. Just know that.
