Leak: Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered Is Coming To The Switch On February 15

Assassin’s Creed III + Liberation Collection looks to be coming to the Nintendo Switch on Feb. 15, 2018, according to a leak.

The image of the collection—which was announced for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One via Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s season pass— was leaked by an online Czech retailer, and the image quickly made its way to Reddit before the mistake was corrected.

While this is Assassin’s Creed’s first time on a Nintendo console in years (not counting Odyssey’s cloud version that was only available in Japan), this is familiar ground for this particular entry. In fact, it was just last console generation we saw Assassin’s Creed III make its way to the Wii U in 2012. Despite being a relatively big get for the console, it didn’t gain much traction with the system's audience and is mostly a forgettable title in that library.

With all that being said, this will be the first time Assassin’s Creed III Liberation comes to anything the Big N has made. The title initially released on the PlayStation Vita, before making its way to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, so this will be a new experience for anyone who's owned Nintendo consoles exclusively.

For those who don’t remember, Assassin’s Creed III took the series to North America, with its setting implanted in the American Revolution era. Players took control of an English-Mohawk Assassin and even involved some fun 2012 end of the world drama. It was pretty well received too, with Metacritic ratings sitting in the 80s. Despite this, it is regarded as one of the more forgettable entries, probably because it was overshadowed by Black Flag a year later.

Liberation, however, received mixed reviews — mostly thanks to a more streamlined story because of its handheld roots. Still, the game got some praise because of the protagonist, Aveline de Grandpré and its setting of New Orleans.

For Switch owners, this will be a pretty good compilation to kill some time when the weather is awful at the tail end of February leading into March.
