Assassin’s Creed III Remastered not announced for Japan at this time

During this week's Nintendo Direct, we finally got confirmation of Assassin’s Creed III Remastered coming to Switch. The news was shared in both North America and Europe, but for whatever reason, it was not part of the Japanese Nintendo Direct. Perhaps it had something to do with timing of the broadcast, as the Japanese Direct did include multiple games that weren't shown in the NA/EU versions. Hopefully the title will be confirmed for Japan at a later date.


I can't believe out of the whole series they decide to release the worst of the bunch.

Yeah, the could have released the universally loved Black Flag on Switch, but instead we got this.

Plus, as some others have pointed out around the internet, the game really looked bad technically during the direct.

I mean they're the guys capable of doing stuff like Mario x Rabbids or Starlink x Starfox, but they still manage to look bad by being the ones who do that one game nobody wants and that looks terrible out of an entire direct. I mean all the other third party games in that direct at least looked like decent/honest efforts maybe with the exception of Dead by Daylight, but even that one at least looked stable which is more than what we can say about that gameplay footage from Assassin's Creed 3.
