Assassin's Creed III remastered coming to the Switch
While not strictly the first time Assassin's Creed has been playable on the Switch - a cloud version of Assassin's Creed Odyssey was playable in Japan with all of the heavy lifting done in a data centre, but this IS the first time that the series is natively running on Switch hardware.
Coming on 21st May, Assassin's Creed III Remastered will be the full AC experience on Nintendo's diminutive console.
Taking full advantage of the capabilities of the Nintendo Switch system, the Remastered edition will feature touch screen interface, motion control aiming, optimized HUD and HD rumble. Additionally, gameplay mechanics and ergonomics have been improved for an optimal gaming experience.
