A more youthful Sam Fisher will be showing up in Splinter Cell Blacklist on August 20 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the agile agent is proving he can infiltrate anywhere. Ubisoft and Nintendo have revealed the game will be coming to Wii U at the same time.

According to Ubisoft, the Wii U's Gamepad will replicate Fisher's OpSat, "allowing the player to operate gadgets such as tri-rotor drones and the sticky cam through touch and motion-based inputs." It will also let players "mark enemies, switch weapons, quick reload and choose gadgets."
