Originally, the trilogy was released for the two popular stationary consoles that year, 2016: the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Now, for the first time since the trilogy's release in the early 2010's, the story of Ezio Auditore is coming to the portable sphere.
Here's when you can get your hands on a copy and relive the adventures of the most iconic character in the series.
Assassin's Creed "Ezio Collection" Release Date Announced
Assassin's Creed fans can bring Italian Renaissance assassin, Ezio, everywhere they go starting February 17. Potential players can add it to their collection for $39.99.
The Ezio Collection will contain ports of the assassin's three featured titles: Assassin's Creed II (2009), Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (2010), and Assassin's Creed: Revelations (2011). It will feature enhanced visuals and Switch-specific aspects including an HD Rumble, adjusted HUD, and touch-screen compatibility.
As veteran fans already know, Assassin's Creed II starts off Ezio's story as he goes about getting revenge for his father. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood follows Ezio's journey to find and safeguard the Apple of Eden which must be recovered by his modern-day counterpart, Desmond, to avert a catastrophic, world-ending event. Assassin's Creed: Revelations deals with Ezio's attempts to unlock the vault constructed by the first game's protagonist, Altaïr Ibn-LaʼAhad.
