Ubisoft has offered a small glimpse of how Assassin's Creed will work on Wii U.

Speaking at a Nintendo third party round table event at E3 today, the publisher announced its Quebec studio was currently working on an Assassin's Creed title for the new console. It refused to confirm whether it will be a new entry in the series or a port of an existing Assassin's game.

However, a representative from its Canadian outpost did explain how the console's controller might be implemented.

The touch screen will display a persistent on-screen map and interactive database, allow for fast weapon selection, display alternative puzzles and be used for the game's eagle vision.

Ubisoft's spokesperson explained that the game will be re-using assets from the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 entries in the series.
