First Assassin’s Creed II DS details revealed by the ESRB
A second Assassin’s Creed was rumored to be in development for DS after the title showed up on a retailer listing, but Ubisoft denied its existence a number of months ago. Yet even though the company still has yet to make an official announcement, the ESRB has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery is heading to the handheld. The rating description for the game also has the first details for Discovery, which we’ve posted below.
“This is a side-scrolling action game, set during the Renaissance, in which players assume the role of an assassin fighting against an enemy group known as the Templars. Players traverse rooftops and alleyways, employ stealth attacks to kill targets, and engage in combat by using swords and throwing daggers. The stealth attacks represent the most intense instances of violence and usually require players to sneak up on targets unnoticed. When players stab enemies in the back or chest, a “blade unsheathing” noise can be heard as the target falls to the ground and disappears.”
