Update:  Looks like this information comes from an Italian message board and the poster said he was a 15 yr old and just wanted to post the story for fun.  Just a couple more weeks and we’ll be done with all these rumors.  Can’t wait for that.

This is possibly the biggest Wii U rumor we have had to date and I am sure it will not be the last. According to the rumor a Ubisoft employee is in a lot of trouble leaking a bunch of Wii U information.

All information comes from Zeldainformer. Check them out for the full list of Wii U rumors.

  • Developer supposedly from Ubisoft Milan division
  • Wii U will support two touch-screen controllers
  • Wii U will include a lot of pre-installed software, just like the 3DS
  • Wii U’s launch lineup is amazing; what happened with the 3DS at launch won’t happen again
  • Ubisoft has “multiple versions” of the system
  • Nintendo asked Ubisoft to release a large number of titles at launch; they’re planning to have Rayman Legends, Assassin’s Creed III, and Just Dance 4, with Killer Freaks from Outer Space available a few weeks later
  • Ubisoft has received several dev kits and tech demos that showcase the system’s capabilities (similar to the Zelda HD demo’s graphical showcase); apparently they haven’t even gone through all the tech demos yet
  • 2GB of RAM, 512 MB for the OS (Sounds about right)
  • Graphics card will be a Radeon HD 6770, meaning DirectX11 and Unreal Engine 4
  • Previous dev kits clocked in at 4GHz, but apparently the latest ones cap out at 6GHz
