Nintendo’s consoles are a bit of a weird place to play Assassin’s Creed. The first Assassin’s Creed on the Nintendo Wii In the console was the third part of the series, and the first Assassin’s Creed titles on the Switch were the fourth part and the spin-off Rogue. It’s not that it’s important to play AC games chronologically, but now it seems weird that Ubisoft is going back in time and throwing out old Assassin’s Creed games on the Switch.
When we say old, we mean Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations, which as The Ezio Collection will come to Switch on February 17 this year. Switch users have been promised an optimized interface (we don't know what that means) and support for touch controls (I guess it will come in handy in inventory and menus).
As is usually the case on the Switch, not all games will be available on the card. Only Assassin’s Creed 2 will be available to install right out of the box, while Brotherhood and Revelations will have to be downloaded from the internet (that’s roughly 35 gigabytes). In addition to these games, the package also includes two shorter films about Ezio Auditore - AC Lineage and AC Embers… which is not a gift because you can watch the same films for free on YouTube.
