Good news for Assassin’s Creed players! Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection is arriving on Nintendo Switch, February 17. It has players take on the role of the legendary Master Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze.

The collection gives everyone access to three games along with their single-player DLCs. This compilation also comes with “Assassin’s Creed Lineage” and “Assassin’s Creed Embers.” These two short films give a closer look at Ezio's story. Players can also enjoy features like handheld mode, HD Rumble, touchscreen interface, and optimized HUD.

One of the games in the collection is Assassin’s Creed II, which should be obvious. That's because this is the game that introduced Ezio as a new Assassin. It's set in the world of Renaissance Italy, from 1476 to 1499. The game features a large open world composed of Italian cities, such as Florence, Venice, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, and Forlì. Making the game even more fun is the encounter with a young Leonardo da Vinci.

The second is Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, where Ezio brings the fight against the Templar Order in Rome. This one takes place in the years 1500 to 1507 where players now need to rebuild the Assassin Brotherhood in Italy and free the city from the control of the Borgias. One of its features is the introduction of multiplayer where players assume the role of a Templar in training.

Finally is Assassin’s Creed Revelations. The main story takes place between the years 1511 to 1512. This time around, the aged Ezio travels to Constantinople to find the five keys needed to unlock a vault built by Altaïr Ibn-LaʼAhad three centuries back. His search for the keys led to Ezio being caught in a fight between the Ottomans and the Byzantines. He also finds out that the Templars are trying to unlock Altaïr's vault and discovers the secrets that lie within.

For those interested, Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection can now be pre-ordered for Nintendo Switch at $39.99. What are you waiting for?
