Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Coming to Switch
Ubisoft has announced it is planning on bringing Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection to the Nintendo Switch next month. The collection will feature three games and downloadable content as well as two short films that round out the legacy of Ezio Auditore.
Previously, the collection of Assassin’s Creed titles were remastered for last generations consoles in 2016, now they join their successors on the Switch. “This exclusive compilation takes full advantage of the capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, including enhanced features such as Handheld Mode, HD Rumble, Touchscreen Interface, and Optimised HUD,” Ubisoft says.
Assassin’s Creed II is the game that sparked a craze within the industry when it launched. While the first Assassin’s Creed was good, it wasn’t until the move to a new protagonist and change in scenery that the series found its footing and popularity. Ezio was so popular he had two more games released in the following years, including Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed Revelations and two short films: Assassin’s Creed Lineage and Assassin’s Creed Embers.
Ubisoft recently announced a second season of content for last year’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, including Dawn of Ragnarök, the latest expansion as well as Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories, free content that re-introduces Kassandra to the Eivor.
