Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed III and Liberation Remastered will mark the first time the franchise is playable on the Nintendo Switch platform. Come May 21, 2019, players will be able to walk in the shoes of Connor and Aveline, as they fight for freedom during the founding moments of America.
The game will feel a little different on the Switch no doubt, with Ubisoft fully determined to take advantage of the Nintendo’s console system capabilities. The Remastered edition will feature touch screen interface, motion control aiming, optimized HUD and HD rumble, with further improvements on the gameplay mechanics and ergonomics.
Assassin’s Creed III Remastered will include the full game, the single-player missions Benedict Arnold and Hidden Secrets, the Tyranny of King Washington and Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered, detailed below:

- Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered: Follow Aveline’s story as she battles Spanish forces in the American south to win freedom for her land and people.
