Splinter Cell Blacklist: Wii U pre-order boxes spotted at GameStop Ireland

Retailer suggests Ubisoft's game is coming to Nintendo's new console

Pre-order boxes for a Wii U version of Splinter Cell Blacklist have been spotted in an Irish GameStop store (via AGB).


The game's currently only confirmed for a spring 2013 release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, although a Wii U version was previously listed online by US retailer Best Buy.

Ubisoft is supporting Wii U heavily during the console's launch period. It will release seven games for the system in time for next month's Wii U release date of November 30 in Europe, including a version of multiplatform title Assassin's Creed 3.

We've asked Ubisoft for comment on the possibility of Splinter Cell Blacklist coming to Wii U too.
