Studio CEO Jason Kingsley explained that the Nintendo edition's exclusive features make it the best build they have released to date.
"Sniper Elite has always been about letting players think carefully about how to execute their missions," he told Nintendo Life.
"Marking patrols, planning the perfect vantage point, setting traps to defend your position… but the Wii U's GamePad really dials up the tactical elements of the game and makes them that much more satisfying.
"Using the GamePad a player can now track the exact positions of any patrols they've 'tagged' in real-time, and locate any explosives they've set - in fact the map even tells you the diameter of their explosions, so you can work out exactly when to set them off for maximum carnage."

Sniper Elite V2 was previously released for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The 'St Pierre' DLC pack was released for the game earlier this week.
