Now that Watch Dogs has been officially confirmed for Wii U, the big question left is just how the game will make use of the system’s unique controller. Well, according to Ubisoft’s Senior Producer Dominic Guay, the studio still hasn’t decided on a way to implement the GamePad’s features into the title.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Guay said that Ubisoft has yet to determine how it will use the Wii U GamePad to enhance Watch Dogs’ gameplay, but he did note that the controller’s unique features, like its dedicated touch screen and gyroscope, would lend themselves well to the title:
“We’re still investigating how we’ll use the tablet on the Wii U, but with the things I mentioned before, for us it’s not going to be a weird stretch. It’s natural. What’s really cool with Watch Dogs, when we start thinking of those devices, it’s not a weird abstraction, it’s not like I’m a space alien and now I’m using a tablet. Why am I doing that? Aiden Pearce is using a device to control the city, so it’s quite easy to imagine what we could do with that.”
Guay also confirmed that all of the game’s social aspects– like accessing another player’s world through a smartphone– will be intact in the Wii U title, making it comparable with the other console versions. It’s good to see Ubisoft won’t be taking the easy way out in bringing the game over to Wii U.
