Yeah, it’s not happening anymore despite it being announced when the 3DS was revealed at last year’s E3. It was called, rather aptly, Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy and Ubisoft has officially hidden-blade stabbed it in the face.
The official reveal blurb for Lost Legacy went something like this: “Driven by curiosity and a desire to understand the origins of his Order, Ezio Auditore travels East in search of the lost castle at Masyaf, the ancient seat of the Assassins.” Wait a minute! That’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations they’re talking about!
That’s exactly what’s happened: Ubisoft, realising the potential to squeeze one more game out of Ezio, killed the 3DS spin-off and moved it onto the consoles and PC instead. Unfortunately for 3DS owners, they’re not getting Assassin’s Creed anything anytime soon but this is not likely an official assassination of all future Assassin’s Creed 3DS games. Everyone else, however, has scored one last outing with their favourite Italian stab machine.
