Unboxing Assassin's Creed III (Wii U)

Unboxing Assassin's Creed III for the Nintendo Wii U

What?  Assassin's Creed III, Wii U

Where Did You Get It?  Toys'R'Us

How Much Was It?  $59.99 plus tax

What Was Stock Like?  Picked over pretty good, but I think you won't have any trouble finding it.


Again, these unboxings were done by viewer request to get a feel for the Wii U packaging and disc art etc.  Assassin's Creed III has nice cover art and disc art, but the black and white manual fails in comparison to the full color units we saw in Nintendo Land and NSMBU.

That said, I am very excited about this game...I had held out on getting a different console all this time, and this game might have made me justify picking up a PS3 or 360 (probably would have been a 360 for other Microsft exclusive titles)...I've had no issues with my PS2, but still...

When the Wii U was announced and I saw all the great third party games were back (N64, GameCube) it really got me excited.  The Wii U not only lets us enjoy the Nintendo staples that are always high quality and endearing, but also pick up some of the 3rd Party Gems that for so long evaded the Nintendo segment.

I will probably get started on this game shortly after the initial blind run on Giants...I doubt I record it, but I do plan to enjoy ACIII :)

The fact that I got this for 40% off via the TRU sale on Wii U Games (11/18-11/21) just makes it that much more of a great deal.  As mentioned in the NSMBU post, that is a great sale and I suggest you take advantage of it if you are able!
