Assassin's Creed 3: Screenshots Leak

Assassin's Creed 3 will do some cool things with the tablet controller on Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console, the latest issue of Nintendo Power confirms (via My Nintendo News). The new console is set to arrive sometime near the end of 2012, which falls right in line with Assassin's Creed 3's planned October 30 release date.

The tablet's touch screen will have a number of uses, offering players a constant link to the in-game Animus. In addition to the expected map -- presumably with touch-based checkpoint marking -- you'll also have access to Animus Database entries from here. Players can also expect to have touch-based weapon selection as well as an alternate view for Eagle Vision, with the tablet's accelerometer controlling the camera.

There's no release date yet for the Wii U version of the game -- nor is there a release date for the console itself -- but you should definitely check out our freshly posted Assassin's Creed 3 eyes-on preview.

Also: You don't want to miss X-Play tonight at 6:30 ET, because you'll get to see Assassin's Creed 3 in action!
