Finally, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Rogue will be released on the Nintendo Switch for the first time as part of the Assassin's Creed: The Rebel Collection. The games will be preserved in their entirety along with some extra features not seen in the original games.
Black Flag was the fourth in the Assassin's Creed series, released in 2013. It featured all of the amazing parkour players expect from Assassin's Creed games and added amazing piracy as well. Rogue served as the prologue to the third game in the series, and was released in 2014. While both games were re-released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, neither has been available for the Switch. Considering how popular the Assassin's Creed games have been, even going so far as to spawn an Assassin's Creed manga series in China, it seemed a little strange that these titles hadn't been released for the newest generation of Nintendo consoles.
The Assassin's Creed: The Rebel Collection will release date on December 6th, 2019 for $39.99, but there will also be a physical version as well. There will be a few additional features added to these two games for the new system, like Handheld Mode, HD Rumble, Touch Screen Interface, and Motion Control Aiming. It will be a great distraction while fans wait for the upcoming Assassin's Creed Gold audio books that were recently spoiled.
This is great news for fans of the genre, and even those who have never played before. There is a good reason why Black Flag is considered one of the best video games of the decade; it certainly has the highest average rating of any Assassin's Creed title. Also, Rogue is a fun game that really fills in the story between Black Flag and III. There's a lot to love with both of these games, and the price makes it accessible to most. It will make a great stocking stuffer for Switch lovers everywhere.
Assassin's Creed: The Rebel Collection will only be available for Nintendo Switch and releases on December 6th.
