Assassin's Creed comes to Switch, cover art picture leaked

Multiple European retailers have listings for an Assassin's Creed game coming to the Nintendo Switch

A recent listing for one of Ubisoft's most popular franchises has suggested that the Nintendo Switch will now be getting its first taste of the Assassin's Creed franchise.


The news comes from the European website, which a listing for "Assassin's Creed III: Liberation Collection" was found. Interestingly enough this isn't the first time a European retailer has listed a new Assassin's Creed collection for the Nintendo Switch, back in early December German retailer 'MediaMarkt' listed a Nintendo Switch Assassin's Creed. The website also claimed that this edition would be released on March 29th, 2019. It was later found that another European website going by the name of Originalky listed a Switch edition titled "Liberation Remaster", that website claimed it would release on March 29th.

The new listing suggests that that Ubisoft has selected the game that they wanted to port over to the Nintendo Switch and have settled with Assassin's Creed III, under the title "Liberation Collection". The listing suggests that this Nintendo Switch edition would be released on February 15th for 35 EURO, or $40. It should be heavily noted that Ubisoft has made no official announcement for a Nintendo Switch version of Assassin's Creed in the west, so please take both the existence of the game and the supposed release date with a healthy amount of skepticism. I would personally think that judging by the leaks from multiple sources that a Nintendo Switch version of Assassin's Creed does exist and that it would most likely release alongside the Assassin's Creed III remaster planned for March.
