Ubisoft today declared it’s bringing Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection to Nintendo Switch. The set of three of games dispatches on the handheld on February 17.
The games in the assortment incorporate Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations, just as the entirety of their DLC. For the people who purchase the actual duplicate, just AC2 is on the cartridge. Different games will be accessible as advanced downloads.
According to Ubisoft, the Collection, “…takes full advantage of the capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, including enhanced features such as Handheld Mode, HD Rumble, Touchscreen Interface, and Optimized HUD.Neither Brotherhood nor Revelations will have the multiplayer mode that the games had on launch.” Neither Brotherhood nor Revelations will have the multiplayer modes that the games had at launch.
It’s a tricky time for the Assassin’s Creed series. Ubisoft is currently wrapping up more DLC for Valhalla. It’s also working on Infinity, its new live-service project. Given the state of the series, it makes sense to launch the beloved older games now.
The publisher had previously released Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered and the Rebel Collection on Switch. This will mark the debut of Ezio on the console. In addition to the games, Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection includes the short films Lineage and Embers, both of which also feature Ezio. The Collection is now available for preorder.
