Assassin’s Creed 3 is surely going to be one of the highlights of the reminder of 2012 when it launches in a few months, but with the addition of a Nintendo Wii U version as well, there’s the little matter of contemplating which version will end up being graphically superior.
An early video released online attempts you give you a basic idea on how the Wii U version will shape up along side console versions, or in this specific case – the PS3 version. We say basic idea here with emphasis as this can’t really be deemed as a proper comparison since the PS3 version is using direct feed video, while the Nintendo Wii U gameplay is off-screen only.
Having said that, the video still provides us with a general idea on how the Wii U version is shaping up. From our point of view, the Wii U version is looking at the very least on par with the PS3 version and maybe even better due to some brighter lighting effects – we can’t really tell for sure.
If you were previously fearing that the Wii U wouldn’t be able to compete with the latest PS3 and Xbox 360 games, then this video alone gives you an idea on that theory being complete rubbish. The Wii U version looks great and considering that this is off-screen footage, don’t be surprised if the Wii U version ends up looking much more polished than current-gen consoles once proper HD comparison footage is out.
After the apparent confirmation of Black Ops 2 on the Wii U as well, things are suddenly starting to look up for Nintendo. We would say that after E3 2011, the Wii U is looking like a much stronger force this time around. Check out the video for yourself and let us know your thoughts on it. Once again, don’t treat this as a proper graphics comparison, but an initial look at how graphics are shaping up between the two consoles.
Are you going to take the Wii U more seriously now?
