Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy as Good as Dead

July 16, 2011, By Sanjeev

Did you know, Nintendo 3DS game Assassin’s Creed: Lost legacy is not happening. Well, we cant say it’s completely dead as they have apparently plugged the game idea into their upcoming title, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, which will be heading to our midst later this year.

Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy as Good as Dead

Lost Legacy’s Ezio goes in search of the ‘ancient seat of Assassins’, a lost castle in a middle eastern city called Masyaf. It is where there is a link up with Altair, the Protagonist of Assassin’s Creed.

The dumped title was revealed along with 3DS during the Nintendo’s E3 conference 2010, which had a parallel story line with Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

Hence, chucking the title will not bring much void to the story. Revelations features Ezio’s search for the keys to Assassin’s fortress in the city of Constantinople, were Altair has sealed an artifact prophesied, holding powers which is capable of ending the conflict between Assassins and Templars.

Of course, slashing the 3DS title could favor the Ezio-trilogy’s final installment in consoles, but that doesn’t mean an end to the handheld titles.

Lead writer Darby McDevitt explains:

“We do a lot of thinking ahead of time on big arcs, like knowing where Ezio is going, knowing where Desmond is going, knowing where Altair is going. The major beats of all our characters’ stories are planned well in advance, so we don’t get Lost – it is where we’re opening up more than we could possibly close off.”

Assassins Creed: Revelations is due this  Novemberon consoles.
