Nintendo Switch players getting Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection next month
Well, it seems the rumors about Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection on the Nintendo Switch were true, as an official announcement by Ubisoft on that subject has just been made.
Yep, almost six years after its release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection is finally coming to the Switch.
Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection will release on the Nintendo Switch on February 17th.
The game features the single player campaigns of Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
The single player DLC for all three games will also be included.
And, of course, this trilogy would not be a special release if players didn’t get some juicy extras as well.
In this case, it will be two films — Assassin’s Creed Lineage and Assassin’s Creed Embers, which will give you in depth information you may not know about Ezio.
Along with the Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection on Switch announcement, Ubisoft also released an announcement video about the trilogy.
