Three of the best Assassin’s Creed titles are coming to the Nintendo Switch next month. Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection, including Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations, will cost a mere $39.99, and will be available in both physical and digital versions. Be aware: the physical version will include Assassin’s Creed 2 on a cartridge, while the other two titles will be available as downloads. This new collection will also include two short films starring Ezio: Assassin’s Creed Lineage and Assassin’s Creed Embers.
While this collection has already been released for more than one console generation, the Switch version is listed as an ‘exclusive’ Ubisoft. The company cites many of the Nintendo console’s features such as “Handheld Mode, HD Rumble, Touchscreen Interface, and Optimized HUD.” The collection will include the original single-player DLC for each of the three included titles. The three games were originally released between 2009 and 2011, and Assassin’s Creed 2 and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood remain the highest-rated games in the series to date.
Ubisoft offers a synopsis of the included titles on their website:
