An Assassin’s Creed Fighting Game?

April 13, 2013 | By | 4 Comments

Last year, Sony released PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and as it turns out, Ubisoft was contemplating doing something similar for their blockbuster franchise. Titled Assassin’s Creed Duel, ACD was apparently pitched as an XBLA and PSN release featuring famous characters from the AC universe as well as other popular Ubisoft franchises. Of course, this project never saw the light of day and it’s no secret as to why.

StickSkills found these images on Benoit Perrault’s portfolio page under “Projects.” Would you have wanted a downloadable 2.5D fighter like this made available? Or are you happy with the AC yearly releases as it is?

    I can’t imagine this game doing well. Maybe it was meant for April Fools

    I’m not to sure how this would turn out. the Assassin’s Creed games are great, and Ezio’s Cameo in Soul Caliber was interesting and a fun break from the usual stealth, but in reality the Assassin’s Creed universe isn’t the best to make a fighting game from. it’s all historical, and this game would either have set groups of Characters (eg Desmond can only fight modern characters,like Lucy, Shawn ((many people would enjoy punching Shawn in the face, in my opinion)), etc.), but that isn’t how fighting games work. the game overall would be more of a good idea for another company to publish to hurt their rep and not Ubisoft, because the general lack of characters (in reality, how many characters, excluding the Multiplayer characters, are important enough to earn a spot in the game, the roster would be tiny). games like Soul Caliber and Super Smash Bros. do well with their fighting games because they are only fighting games, for the most part, and have a large pool of characters to grab fighters from.

    Overall, I would probably get a demo or borrow it to see what it had, but from the limited pool possibility and lack of variety (3 characters in that first picture would use the exact same weapon), it seems unlikely that many would put down $60 or even around $30 for a spinoff fighting game, and i’m for sure not one of them.
