Assassin's Creed III is coming to Nintendo's newest console. We don't have a release date for either yet, but details about how the game utilizes the controller have finally surfaced.
Courtesy of the latest issue of Nintendo Power, the tablet-style controller does a variety of things for players. It displays a persistent map of the game and allows you to quickly switch between weapons in combat. The screen also acts as an alternative view for Eagle Vision using the built-in accelerometer.
Additionally, the controller is linked to the Animus, allowing you to read character biographies and other database information. For more details, be sure to pick up the latest Nintendo Power.
