I'm interested to see more. Now that we have a console that has controls that work as 3d game spin offs of console games I'm much more interested in them. The problem of the PSP wasn't that console fanchises were getting portable entries, that's existed and continued to exist on handhelds forever (MK, mario, RE, etc), its that most sucked due to them attempting to make games with a worse control scheme.
I don't care about the release date, the game isn't going anywhere.
Well assuming those people only have PS3s and Vitas (because most likely the other three SKUs will all be superior), and they're very dedicated to the franchise, sure. But I imagine there are more people who wouldn't buy two of the same franchise at the same time, and those people would be more inclined to buy a Vita specific AC at some summer drought, and all the hardcore fans would also buy it at that time.
Yeah i just got the latest gameinformer and it has a preview of Assassins Creed 3:Liberation
For vita also stars a Female assassin!
Its out same day as AC3 (oct30)
Location is New Orleans
Female assassin named Aveline
Looks like same time period as AC3
ubisoft sofia is devolping
takes place during 1765-1780 in the period between the end of the french and indian war
one of the bullet points is that it's "true AC gameplay"
will not connect to desmond
will have "multiplayer specifically tailored to the vita experience"
"the game has been released as a propaganda tool by Abstergo,who want players to experience a gray area of the Assassin/Templar conflict as an assassin rather than a templar"
Aveline's mentor is an escaped slave named Agate,leader of the assassins in New Orleans
Wildlife like alligators "wait on the banks of the swamp or hide beneath murky waters"
Liberation will also take players across the Gulf into Mexico"
Game will take place in "Large gameplay areas,you can run,climb,fight,and explore the entirety of New Orleans without loading a new area."
Am I missing something here? The devs past work, doesn't give reason to be 'negative' about a game we don't know anything about yet. They haven't done any bad work yet just nothing major. I for one am cautiously optimistic. The setting and details sound fantastic
