An Assassin at TGS? Whatever next…?
by Linford Butler

Alright, so we were just a tad slow at posting this. But, nevertheless, we’re posting it now just in case you haven’t seen it. In from the Tokyo Game Show (which is going on now, incidentally), this new, action-packed trailer for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed II, is sure to get the juices flowing in fans of the series and new players alike.

For the first time in an Assassin’s Creed II trailer, we’ll see precisely which event prompted Ezio’s decision to become an Assassin. Also, we see Ezio without the Assassin’s outfit in this trailer, and one would be forgiven for complimenting him on being a rather handsome young fellow. However, the one thing that is most exciting (for me at least) is the combat – what we see in this trailer just shows how many leaps and bounds this sequel has taken in terms of upping the quality of combat in the first. New combos, fantastic moves, and what looks like one hell of a lot more gore are looking to make Assassin’s Creed II even better than its prequel.

We’ll be going hands-on with Assassin’s Creed II almost a month before release as part of our Eurogamer Expo coverage, over on – be sure not to miss it.
