Splinter Cell Blacklist Wii U preorders go live, get detailed
Wii U (and other platform) pre-orders for Splinter Cell: Blacklist are alive and kicking on Amazon and Gamestop, along with some fresh information about those "enhanced gameplay features" Nintendo promised earlier this month.

The WiiPad will display Sam Fisher's OpSat, "allowing the player to operate gadgets such as tri-rotor drones, sticky cam and much more through touch- and motion-based inputs," the Wii U descriptions read. The WiiPad lets players mark and execute enemies, switch weapons and pick gadgets, and displays worldwide stats and friends' progress reports. The Wii U is not a part of the Collector's Edition package available for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist comes out on August 20 for all platforms.
