Today, Ubisoft announced that for the first time ever, Assassin’s Creed® will be available on the Nintendo Switch™ system.

Are they being paid by the word or something? That is absurd.

The framerate like a few other 3rd party games shown in this Direct is atrocious.

This looks like it runs worse than on Wii U WTF

That looks choppy as hell [and I'm usually not that framerate sensitive...]

someone, somewhere thought re-releasing the worst critically received AC game besides maybe Unity, in this state (oof that framerate) was a good idea...

I wonder what features will be for the touch screen.

I'm pretty sure the bad framerate is due to a poorly encoded video but with that said I'm still going to wait for more footage before I even think about it.

This should have been AC4 though...
