The game comes out April 21st.
Back on September last year, Ubisoft announced that they’d be releasing the first in a series of Download-Only, Sidescroller titles for the franchise. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China follows the story of Assassin Shao Jun, in 16th Century China.
We prevously met her in Assassin’s Creed: Embers, an animated movie that served as a closure to Ezio Auditore, the main character of the Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations.
The gameplay doesn’t seem like something we haven’t seen before, it’s a 2.5D sidescroller that reminds us of the popular Metroidvania formula; popular examples of this are Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Super Metroid, and the more recent Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate.
The title will be download-only, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The next titles in this series include Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Russia, already announced for the same platforms as ACC: China.
