In a move I find quite shocking, Ubisoft is actually launching Watch Dogs for the Wii U in Japan. The title will drop on December 4th in the land of rising sun. The Amazon listing here reveals the launch date and confirmation.
Earlier today, the Official Watch Dogs Twitter account stated that Watch Dogs on Wii U will not be getting any DLC support. Shortly after that tweet, the firm deleted it.
What do you guys think about this? Is Ubisoft trying to hide the fact the Wii U version isn’t getting DLC to retain the small amount of users who are still getting the game? Or could they be possibly working on DLC for the Wii U version and the tweet was a mistake? Or maybe they are undecided at this point? I would love to hear what you think on the matter in the comments section below.
Despite Ubisoft delaying the release of Watch Dogs on Wii U by 9 months. The firm has revealed that the Wii U version of the game will receive any DLC other versions of the game have.

Ubisoft has officially announced that Watch Dogs will be hitting the Wii U on November 20th in North America.
It looks like Ubisoft’s Mexican Facebook page outed the Wii U release date for Watch Dogs. According to the page, Watch Dogs is dropping on November 18th for the Wii U.
While some people still think Watch Dogs isn’t coming to the Wii U. Ubisoft has updated the Wii U Uplay app with Watch Dogs content. However, the game still has no screenshots, or videos of the Wii U version. AND, there still is no release date. Ubisoft is clearly setting this game up to succeed on Wii U. More than half-year delay with zero footage to boot! Good job Ubisoft, way to treat your customers. Source: Nintendo enthusiast

“Oh Ubisoft, will you never not give us material? Following a recent Watch Dogs PC controversy, Jimquisition looks at Ubi’s recent history of being terrible at computer games.”
Ubisoft released an official statement concerning the recent controversy surrounding the deactivation of “E3” settings for the PC version of Watch Dogs discovered by the PC modding community. The company admits they’ve deactivated the settings, but claims it was due to “possible impacts on visual fidelity, stability, performance and overall gameplay quality.”
Ubisoft has also addressed the conspiracy theory in which people claimed the deactivation was intended to downgrade visuals to keep the game from outperforming Xbox One and PS4 versions of the title.
Bayonetta 2 might sell better than most people thought, as the game is in the top 3 game sales for Amazon Japan right now. Super Smash Bros for 3DS is number one, while Minecraft is number 2, and Bayonetta 2 is number three. Watch Dogs on the PS4 is fittingly number 4. See the full charts here. Thanks Domondohko for the tip!
There was a lot of controversy surrounding the visual downgrades for Watch Dogs when compared to the original E3 reveal in 2012. A recent discovery made by The Worse at Guru3D probably won’t help settle down the problem, especially for PC owners of the title, since some “E3” settings still included in the PC game revealed Ubisoft has deactivated these settings, which allows the similar visuals as seen in the 2012 E3 reveal. When reactivated, some users have claimed the game looks drastically nicer, and actually enhances the performance on Ultra settings for the PC.
Mario Kart 8 is currently the number one game on Amazon Canada, which shows the title is continuing to sell well post launch. The PS4 version of Watch Dogs seems to be the prefered version, as it takes the top spot on the list. The Mario Kart 8 bundle and PS4 are continuing to perform well as both are in the top 10 for console sales. Hopefully Mario Kart 8 is the sign of good things to come for Nintendo and the Wii U. Thanks to Gryphonofmight for the tip!
Ubisoft has announced that Watch Dogs has sold over 4 million copies in its first week on the market.
Digital Foundry has tested the frame-rates between the PS3 and PS4 versions of Watch Dogs. The PS4 version is locked at 30 FPS, while the PS3 version dips down to as low as 24FPS from what I can see.
