Ubisoft and Nintendo have finally officially announced the remastered edition of Assassin's Creed III for the Nintendo Switch after the absolute flop of leaks the past couple of weeks.

If you haven't been following the build up of the remastered edition of Assassin's Creed III for the Nintendo Switch, here is a quick re-cap of what has happened. At the end of January 28th, we saw that multiple European retailers listed on their websites "Assassin's Creed III Remastered" for the Nintendo Switch. Then yesterday, Ubisoft officially announced the remastered edition for Assassin's Creed III for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but didn't mention anything about a Nintendo Switch version.

Ubisoft must of forgotten to take the listing off their website, as fans captured images of Assassin's Creed III supposedly coming to the Switch, yet there was still no official announcement from either Ubisoft or Nintendo. Now, both Ubisoft and Nintendo have officially announced the Switch version and a listing for the title has appeared on the Nintendo website revealing details. Within the entirety of this post, I have provided the details of the Switch edition. Assassin's Creed III remastered will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on May 21st, 2019.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
