‘Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Collection’ may be coming to Nintendo Switch

A compilation titled Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Collection is reportedly coming to the Nintendo Switch, after its box art was spotted online.

The discovery was made by a gamer who goes by the name Nightmare666xD on Reddit. The listing was found in several Czech online stores, with the box art for the collection leaked alongside a price tag of about €35 and a release date of February 15.

The bundle apparently includes Assassin’s Creed III, which was originally released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, and Windows PC, and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, which was originally released for the PlayStation Vita. Both games launched in October 2012.

The leaked listing follows rumors from late last year of an Assassin’s Creed Compilation, which was found on a German retailer’s website. The earlier listing did not mention which games are included in the collection, but it stated a release date of March 29.

There is the possibility that Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Collection for the Nintendo Switch is real, as Ubisoft previously announced that all Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass owners will gain access to remastered versions of the two games included in the leaked compilation.

Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, which features a timeline set in the origins of the United States, will include the Benedict Arnold Missions, the Hidden Secrets Pack, and all three episodes of the Tyranny of King Washington. Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Remastered, meanwhile, follows the same story of the original release, set in New Orleans during the same time frame.

The two remastered games will support 4K and HDR on the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC, and 1080p on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The upgrades are not limited to graphics though, as the games will also offer improved gameplay mechanics, with several revamped or tweaked features.

With Ubisoft doing work for the remastered games, it would make sense for the titles to also be released for the Nintendo Switch through the rumored Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Collection. The release date of February 15, however, is likely a placeholder, with the March 29 release date from the earlier leaked listing more plausible as the remastered games will arrive for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass owners that month.

The best Metroid games, ranked
Closeup of Samus from Metroid Dread.

The Metroid saga is one of Nintendo's oldest franchises, with the original Metroid debuting in 1986 (in Japan). Since then, numerous Metroid games have been released across various Nintendo consoles and handhelds, along with spinoffs and remakes.

Metroid has a reputation for being atmospheric, with satisfying gameplay that encourages exploration. Though the franchise has primarily been presented from a 2D perspective, the Prime subseries consists of first-person shooters, which was a major departure at the time. Either way, it's one of Nintendo's most beloved franchises, with most games garnering positive reviews from critics and fans. Metroid Dread received fantastic ratings across the board when it launched in 2021, the original Metroid Prime has made its way to the Switch, and fans are eagerly awaiting details on the development of Metroid Prime 4.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has a new Yoshi’s Island track — and it’s perfect
Birdo sails through the sky in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Yoshi's Island course.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe just got even bigger. The fourth wave of its Booster Course Pack DLC just dropped on Nintendo Switch, adding eight more tracks to the racing game. The list includes some classics from the GameCube, Wii, and Game Boy Advance installments of the series, but it's most exciting addition is an entirely original one: Yoshi's Island.

As you may have guessed, the new course draws inspiration from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. On a visual level, it's one of the Mario Kart's most delightful tracks yet. The first leg has players racing through yellow rolling hills that are packed with little references to Yoshi's standalone games. From the starting line, you can see Poochy sitting on an oversized mailbox and catch some Chain Chomps delightfully bouncing around in the distance. Later, you'll spot some Goonies flying in the sky and a giant purple Blargg.

All cross-platform games (PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.
