Splinter Cell's Fourth Echelon may be a secret special ops unit, but Nintendo and Ubisoft are shouting from the rooftops that Splinter Cell Blacklist is officially coming to the Wii U in August.

The game comes out on August 20th, along with the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 versions, but will naturally feature special GamePad controls. With it you can operate drones, mark enemies, use the sticky cam, and more.
