Ubisoft Montreal has said that the Wii U will contain all of the core social features offered by the other platforms. One such feature is the ability to access other people's worlds through your smartphone.

Producer Dominic Guay had this to say:

So the connectivity between players with mobile devices, the way you can control the city, the immersion, all those are core and on any platforms we're going to ship on we're going to make sure we nail those pillars down
Guay also went on to say that the controller will fit the premise of hacking very well.
We're still investigating how we'll use the tablet on the Wii U, but with the things I mentioned before, for us it's not going to be a weird stretch. It's natural. What's really cool with Watch Dogs, when we start thinking of those devices, it's not a weird abstraction, it's not like I'm a space alien and now I'm using a tablet. Why am I doing that? Aiden Pearce is using a device to control the city, so it's quite easy to imagine what we could do with that.
Guay went on to confirm that the game was "already running" on the system. Are you looking forward to the release of this game on the Wii U? Do you think the tablet controller will be used to its potential?
