Ubisoft casually dropped the news about Nintendo's next console into today's Assassin's Creed III press release.

The wording in the official communication from Ubisoft is slightly odd. AC III is listed as "set to release" on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, but "in development for" Wii U. Seeing a difference there might be reading too much into a minor choice of language in a press release, but there's a small chance it could mean something.

What are the chances you'll pick up the game for Wii U instead of one of your current platforms?
