The first person stealth-action game will be the same as the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions, but will make use of the GamePad's touch screen to manage inventory.
"We were over halfway through the project when the Wii U thing started coming about," producer Glenn Gamble told Digital Spy.
"We didn't want to change the game, because the game had already been established, so we tried to say, 'What can we augment with the Wii U version?'
"That's where it's basically a more elegant inventory management system. With the Wii U you have access to your backpack at all times, so you can tap what weapons you want, you can drop stuff. It's a lot more streamlined."
The title was also given a release date of March 29 in Europe.
