As if anyone needed yet another reason to pick up Assassin's Creed: Revelations at launch, Ubisoft has just announced that the initial shipment of the PS3 version of their time-jumping assassination simulator will also include the original Assassin's Creed.

Seeing as the Assassin's Creed mythos are fairly intricate, convoluted and span several centuries, playing through the original will provide a much needed refresher course for those of us who have clocked more than a few hours in the Animus. At this point, we're not even sure who we are anymore.

[Update: We reached out to Ubisoft to ask if the 2007 pre-Trophy Assassin's Creed would be updated to support the digital baubles, and a Ubi rep replied, "There will be no trophy support for the original Assassin's Creed." Sorry, Trophy collectors.]
