Last week when asked about the graphical capabilities of the Wii U version of Watch Dogs, creative director Jonathan Morin stated that the Wii U version of the game was “inbetween current and next-gen consoles“. Now in an interview with CVG, Morin has clarified that statement to Wii U owners.
I would say the Wii U version is pretty much in between what the current gen is and what the next gen is from a version standpoint. It’s hard to position it. I would tend to say it’s maybe a bit closer to current gen than next gen for certain things but it’s a beautiful game on Wii U and it’s cool to play it just on the GamePad.
Morin also states that the company is working on “optimizing the controls for the beast that is the Wii U GamePad.”. It’s nice to see Ubisoft give focus to the Wii U, as Rayman Legends was a superior title on the Wii U with its touch controls. Morin also mentions how the game plays on the PlayStation 4 with its remote play feature. If you’re interested in reading the full interview, you can do so here.
