After months of speculation, Ubisoft recently announced a Wii U version of their upcoming Splinter Cell Blacklist. Though details were sparse, a few images were released that reflected what gamers could expect when using the GamePad for this newest Splinter Cell game. A new trailer has now been released that highlights how the Wii U GamePad replicates Sam Fisher’s OpSat and makes for a more immersive gameplay experience.

The new trailer centers around the Strategic Mission Interface (SMI) which is the “nerve center” for all of Sam’s tech he will use during missions. Said to be the ultimate in covert ops technology, the SMI using drone control, scanning, data transmission and more will be under control of the player with the Wii U GamePad.

The first feature shown off is how the TriRotor drone is controlled. Using the GamePad’s tilt and motion controls, gamers can covertly navigate the drone above and around enemy lines to either survey or take out the opposition. Sam’s spy cam will also operate similarly to the drone. Often used under doors to give a tactical advantage before bursting into a room, the spy cam’s feed will be shown on the GamePad screen as it scans.

Outside of advanced tech control, the Wii U GamePad can also be used to make Sam a more efficient and lethal killer. With a simple tap on the touch screen, weapons and gadgets can be selected on the fly so navigating menus won’t be an issue in the heat of battle. A feature that is found in previous Ubisoft titles is also present Blacklist: tagging an enemy. By using the GamePad’s touch screen, players will tap any enemies they see to select them for execution. After the enemies have been selected, Sam will then pull off a cinematic kill where he takes out several foes within seconds.

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell has always been a series packed with cool gadgets that gamers can use to feel like the ultimate spy. Playing on the Wii U provides even more ways to accomplish missions and ensure that Sam Fisher is one of the most silent and deadliest forces in gaming.

Splinter Cell Blacklist is scheduled for release on Aug. 20 for the Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
