A more youthful Sam Fisher will be showing up in Splinter Cell Blacklist on August 20 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the agile agent is proving he can infiltrate anywhere. Ubisoft and Nintendo have revealed the game will be coming to Wii U at the same time. According to Ubisoft, the Wii U's Gamepad will replicate Fisher's OpSat, "allowing the player to operate gadgets such as tri-rotor drones and the sticky cam through touch and motion-based inputs." It will also let players "mark enemies, switch weapons, quick reload and choose gadgets." For a look at how gameplay was on console back in January, check out our preview.

      This is something we kinda knew about since before launch with that listing in the Blockbuster database but at least it's out in the open now.

      I'll be getting it on PC but I'm glad to see Wii U getting at least one decent game on the same day as every other platform.
