They must be compensating for something…

Ubisoft has announced that 6 of their highly anticipated Wii U titles will be available on the system’s North America launch day, November 18th. Along with the much awaited Assassin’s Creed III and ZombiU, the line-up will also include ESPN Sports Connection, Just Dance® 4, Rabbids® Land, and Your Shape®: Fitness Evolved 2013. The same lineup will also be available on November 30th when the system launches in EMEA territories. Out of all the third party developers, Ubisoft currently represents 25% of the total launch games, more then any of the others. Ubisoft has also annouced that other titles like Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth and Rayman® Legends will also be released for the Wii U soon.

Assassin’’s Creed III: The third game in the popular series is already out on the PS3 and Xbox 360. It will be the first main series game in the franchise to be on a Nintendo home console. The game follows Conner, a half Native-American, an assassin working to fight for the liberty of his country in the American Revolutionary war.

ESPN Sports Connection: A light-heated game in which players can experience six popular sports, soccer, football, baseball, tennis, golf, and karting with their Miis. The game uses the GamePad’s touch pad to control things from a football blitz to a soccer curl shot. It is also compatible with Wii Motion Plus to mimic real sports gestures such as holding a bat or a go-kart steering wheel.

The Wii U version features the version-exclusive Puppet Master Mode which allows the player to change the choreography by selecting dance moves in real time using the GamePad touch screen. There is also MC Mode which allows players to choose the next song, sing the lyrics displayed on the GamePad screen and use the screen to write dedications that appear live on the TV. Wii U-exclusive tracks include: “Ain’t No Other Man” by The Girly Team, “Want U Back” by Cher Lloyd ft. Astro and “Domino” by Jessie J.
