Assassin's Creed II: Discovery confirmed for DS, will use DSi camera

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.
