Altair himself would probably admire the stealthiness of the build-up to Assassin's Creed on the DS. Since the title was confirmed, not a word has passed through Ubisoft's lips about the project, despite the fact that it launches under a month from now. But finally, after a lengthy period of time, we have a full title, courtesy of IGN: Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles. MEGATON!
Of course, that leaves us absolutely no clearer on what this accursed game actually is. The sensible money would be on a 2D platform-based adventure title, but that's pure guesswork. It could be a card game. It could be a kart racer. For all we know, it could be a damn dating sim. But we know this much: the lack of information on the game is now beginning to take its toll on us, to the point where we have developed a kind of perverse curiosity about just what form Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles will take. And we're not proud of that.
