Seeing how the game was already rated by the ESRB and shown in playable form on iPhone, today's announcement via press release of Assassin's Creed II: Discovery for Nintendo DS/DSi is hardly a surprise -- at least not as much as a guy in white popping out of a haystack and stabbing someone.

Slated for a November 17 release, the game is a side-scroller that supports the DSi's built-in cameras for placing photos of yourself (or, well, anything really) onto "wanted" posters plastered across Spain, where it takes place -- just as can be done in the iPhone version. Griptonite Games is developing AC2: Discovery, which is a very good thing, given how impressed we were recently with its other portable AC title, Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines for PSP.
