Late last week Assassin’s Creed III Remastered was given a release date for all the other consoles and PC, but not the Switch. It’s been rumoured to be coming to the Switch, listed at retailers even – but now there’s even more fuel on the fire.

Ubisoft themselves now list it as coming to the Switch.

You need to be logged in to see it, but on the Ubisoft Club website, the game is clearly listed as coming to the Switch. Whether or not that’s going to be the same release date, or it could still just be a mistake – but at this point, we’re going to believe it.
Screencap at link.

Kind of wish that so many websites didn't sort of spoil what would be revealed during an upcoming Direct. Granted, this and Spyro were somewhat expected picks, but

the Danganronpa trilogy

would have been something I would have been surprised to see.

Cool, yet another game announced for all plattaforms that is actually coming to switch, but the marketing hide this fact for reasons. Congrats to everyone involved.

Yes?
Ezio Collection is already out on PS4 and One
Rogue too
III and Liberation were the next to get the remastered treatment.
They'll probably throw the older remasters on Switch too eventually after this sells. Ubi loves their catalog ports on the platform (Rayman Legends, South Park 1-2, Child of Light, Valiant Hearts, etc).

Gives me a lot of nostalgia. Love the Ubisoft games around that period.

Although it's not really the worst kept secret, i just want to say this:

Worst kept secret for the worst AC. "It's like poetry."

Very happy to see the clearest confirmation yet that this is coming to the Switch! Now all I want to see confirmed is that everything in the “set” will be included on the cartridge.

Why not port Ezio Trilogy? those games are more critically acclaimed and have never been released on Nintendo Consoles unlike 3

Too bad that this is the most boring AC I ever played. Any other than this would have had me on board, but I can't suffer again through this one. Bring Ezio collection and I will buy that twice.

Real question: Does it have it's online mode? AC's online was really underrated and then they stripped it from current gen versions.

I guess Ubisoft wants to test if even their worst games can do well on Switch.
Honestly ... Ubi must be aware that the view on AC 3 is not really good.

Black Flag had a Wii U port, iirc. Wish they would've gone with that ... or even Rogue. Both are better than 3.

Brotherhood had a cool setting and a great multiplayer mode. III has nothing.

I haven't played Syndicate, though, so I don't care about that one :P
3's MP was the pinnacle of AC MP.

Also Brotherhood was an asset flip with a nonsensical story. 3 has the best setting in the series and an amazing character dynamic in Connor and Haytham.

It's what's coming to the other platforms next.

They might do further games in future but those would be isolated Switch releases. With III and Liberation coming to all platforms Ubisoft can at least guarantee some synchronicity when it comes to word of mouth.

hence the "why tho?" do they see any significant sales potential in a standalone remaster of III considering?
I think it'll probably do okay. At a minimum it's the first major AC game to be playable on handheld - Bloodlines and Liberation were both limited and short compared to the main console releases. It probably doesn't have to sell that much to be worth Ubisoft's time porting it.

They should port Watch_Dogs to the Switch too. The Wii U version wasn't that bad
They should go straight for Watch_Dogs 2. It should be within the Switch's capabilities and would comfortably be the most technically ambitious third party open world game on the system.

They probably already plan to port the Ezio trilogy, but this gives them the opportunity to sell the same product at the same time across all platforms, which they wouldn't get with the Ezio trilogy.

What games appeared on Wii U isn't relevant to Switch. Only a tiny fraction of Wii U owners bought ACIII, and that tiny fraction represent an even smaller portion of Switch owners. There's probably significantly more overlap between Odyssey season pass holders and Switch owners than there is between ACIII Wii U owners and Switch owners.
