Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Now Making Its Way to the Switch

The Assassin’s Creed series is easily one of the most well-known franchises in the gaming sphere. The games are available on many platforms, but those are many of the newer ones. So, it makes sense for Ubisoft to bring some of the older games, some of the best in the franchise, many would argue, to more modern platforms.  

This sentiment must be prevailing in the Ubisoft office as they have announced Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection will be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection is a pack consisting of Assassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations. As the name suggests, all three games feature Ezio Auditore da Firenze, our Assassin from Florence. The collection will be released on February 17th for the Switch and will be priced at $39.99. 

Ubisoft states that this collection will take “full advantage of the capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, including enhanced features such as Handheld Mode, HD Rumble, Touchscreen Interface, and Optimized HUD.”  

Players will also get access to all the solo DLC released for these games; Assassin’s Creed Lineage and Assassin’s Creed Embers – that “dive even deeper into Ezio’s story.” 

The Ezio Collection has already been available on other platforms; it was released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016. Players can experience the stories that laid the foundation for the behemoth franchises Assassin’s Creed has now become.  

Many state that these games had the best story, characters, and world-building out of any game in the franchise and could be rivaled only by Black Flag.

Currently, the Nintendo Switch has Assassin’s Creed 3 and Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection – a pack of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Rogue. No other game from the franchise is available on the handheld until The Ezio Collection is released.
