Assassin's Creed III sucked. I said it. Fight me. And before Switch users are going to get a crack at the Ezio trilogy, a.k.a The Best Assassin's Creed Games, it looks like we're going to be stuck with one of the weakest entries in the entire franchise.
As spotted on Reddit, there's a couple of Czech retailers listing the so-called Assassin's Creed III: Liberation Edition for Switch, which not only comes with a game that somehow made the American Revolution super dull, but also ACIII: Liberation, the first time in the entire franchise where you finally got the chance to play as a woman. Which is actually pretty cool!
Liberation was originally a Vita game, which means we reviewed it back in the day - we even gave it a Bronze Award, though the words feel more like a 6/10 to me. I personally thought it was alright, but the idea of having the first ever female character in the AC universe dress up as a slave or a rich lady for parts of the game still feels pretty gross.
ACIII, on the other hand, was a buggy mess which revamped the movement system from the previous games and made it actively worse. I tried to defend it when it launched and boy, do I regret it now.
I have a better idea - just put The Ezio Trilogy on Switch! AC2, Brotherhood, and Revelations are all top-notch games, if ultimately quite similar. But they came out on PS4 and Xbox One bloody ages ago, and I'd kill to play those games on the move. Sort it out, Ubisoft.
Whatever. If you really want to know, Assassin's Creed III: Liberation Edition is reportedly due out on February 15th, and it'll cost something like £30/$40. In the meantime, I'll be sending several angry letters to my local MP demanding that they contact Ubisoft and sort this out for me.
