Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Nintendo Switch

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is coming to the Nintendo Switch in Japan.

Last night’s Nintendo Direct served up a raft of game announcements for the Nintendo 3DS and Switch, including news of new titles in the Luigi’s Mansion and Animal Crossing franchises. One franchise that wasn’t mentioned – and nor were we expecting it to be – was Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series.

However, in Japan’s Nintendo Direct broadcast it was confirmed that Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world action RPG, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch as a cloud streaming game.

Here’s the reveal trailer showing the game in action on the Switch.

It’s not the first game from the PlayStation 4/Xbox One generation to get this treatment. Capcom’s Resident Evil VII was also released for the Nintendo Switch as a cloud streaming game earlier this year, and according to reports it performed rather well.

We have to assume that the inconsistent availability of high-speed internet in the West prohibits such releases in Europe and North America.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Cloud Version will be available in Japan from October 5, 2018.

It’s a real shame we’ll probably never get it here, but we certainly wouldn’t say no to Assassin’s Creed: Ezio Trilogy on the Switch. How about it, Ubisoft?
