Ubisoft Discovers Assassin’s Creed II DS


Rubbing it in the faces of PC gamers who had their version of Assassin’s Creed II pushed back to 2010, Ubisoft has unveiled a new DS spin-off titled Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery, which will be out on November 17th with every other platform…except for the PC.

Like Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines on the PSP, Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery for the DS is a side story rather than a downsized port of the console and PC game. But unlike Bloodlines, which will continue Altair’s story and bridge the game between the two main games, Discovery will follow assassin newcomer Ezio on a quest to Spain in an “untold chapter” in the Assassin’s Creed II storyline.

Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery is being developed by Griptonite Games as a platform action game “with an emphasis on exhilarating speed and breathtaking acrobatics.” As an added bonus for DSi owners, the game will allow players to take pictures and put them into the game as “WANTED!” posters. However, what these posters actually do, if anything, is unclear.

“Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery is a great way for fans to experience a new chapter of the Assassin’s Creed II storyline,” shared Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “We think Nintendo fans will be impressed with all the unique features in the game designed specifically for Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DS.”
