Do you remember your first experience with Assassins Creed? The inaugural entry in Ubisoft’s hit series was a driving force of the Xbox 360 and PS3’s launch – a bold new idea with ample room to innovate and expand over the course of a generation. Since then we’ve sliced and swan-dived our way through key moments in history, with a personal highlight being the swashbuckling antics of Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag. We’ve also seen a near complete shift in the franchise’s framework with recent entries Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which renewed interest considerably for current-gen console owners. With such a wide ranging suite of ideas, concepts and executions at hand, it strikes me as odd that Ubisoft have chosen to bring such a divisive snapshot of the series’ history to the Switch.

Ubisoft games are often the victim of leaks. Most projects are made known prior to their official announcement, and that seems to be the case once again.

Assets for a new IP titled “Roller Champions” started to surface today. The sports-inspired title features quick play matches, ranked matches, custom matches, and tournaments. A private test was apparently conducted earlier this month.

Switch received one of its latest ports this week in the form of Assassin’s Creed III Remastered. How does the game perform? Digital Foundry takes a closer look at the technical side of things.

The first point to discuss is resolution. Assassin’s Creed III does manage to run at 1080p on Switch when docked compared to Wii U’s 720p. However, the image presented isn’t as refined as the PlayStation 4 version due to aspects such as post anti-aliasing.

Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD is also included in the package, but interestingly, the resolution here is a bit lower. The game runs at 900p when docked with edge artifacts in motion.
