Sweet. This looks awesome.

Assassin's Creed trailers always have the best music.

Posted by probablytuna

It certainly looks good, hope it delivers in the gameplay department.

A black lead? Moreover, a black female lead? I bet focus testing did not like that at all.

Say what you will about the game itself, but that's a damned bold move.

looks nice

This is a game that makes me want a Vita. How long until it's ported elsewhere?

Posted by Orange_Pork

Of course the one game I really want for Vita is the one game that doesn't also get a PS3 port.

@Vitor:Exactly what I was thinking,after seeing this though I kind of wish they would make of the protagonist of III and they could switch Connor for Liberation.Because frankily I want to know more about this protagonist and I don't think that could be fully explored ever in a Vita title.

It's not like that's unprecedented, remember D'arci Stern from Urban Chaos?

I like the cut of this game's jib.

The vita is a good enough platform to make this a full experience if they put the effort into it. Here's hoping.

So... It's an Assassin's Creed game then? Excellent.

Posted by Deusx

Hey look! Another spin off of a game I am going to be playing on my PC or PS3! Vita sure does have a great library!

Posted by Zarile3

@Deusx: It may not be great now, but it's growing. And what do you expect? It's Assassin's Creed, it's not a spin off, it's a standalone title.

The Vita IS getting exclusives, Gravity Rush is a fantastic game that really could only be experienced correctly on the Vita. There are more games coming as well, some exclusive to the Vita, others are ports, some are standalone games that are releasing against their big brother console counterparts.

Please let this game be awesome.

Not too hyped given the pedigree of the AC spin-offs, but I'll give them props for not having her in a period-inappropriate hoodie.

sony and ubisoft want me to be happy woohooo vita

Posted by Cyrisaurus

It's a good thing I'm excited for this because I'll be getting it no matter what seeing that it's packed in with the White Vita which is sexy as hell and I can't pass it up.

They've come out and said that Altair and Ezio aren't related to one another, meaning that at some point their descendants came together. I'mma guess that Conor is descended from one, this girl is descended from the other, and THERE WILL BE BONING.

A promising game on the Vita. Now that's something.

I agree, it´s growing but man is it growing slow and Play Station doesn´t seem to give a FUCK about their console. I could show you a list of PSVITA games coming out and 80% are ports and never-to-be-localized. I´m not trying to bash on the console, I do hope it gets better. I just wish Play Station would release more games like Gravity Rush which is in my opinion, a great game.

If this wasn't a Vita game, I'd totally get it.

This game looks like shit as well as the vita.

What made you buy one in the first place? Were you forced at gunpoint?

Gravity Rush says hello. And that is an original IP.

This looks pretty kewl as a spin-off. I'm glad it's a different character and not just some extra missions for the character in AC3. I got a Vita and love Assassin's Creed so there's no reason not to buy it unless it ends up being horrible.

Who? :D

I think it actually is really significant to put a female minority in the lead role of a best selling major franchise entry (sadly only a portable game though). I hope this becomes a trend and we see more variety in game protagonists. Based on the context of the game, I'd guess she's supposed to be Native American, not black.

Also, awesome music is awesome!

What looks shitty about it. This looks like one of the most promising Vita games announced to me.

What d'ya mean, "who"? Don't you remember Urban Chaos? That was a pretty good game, too.

Also, Jade from Beyond Good and Evil is largely thought to be black - though she is actually racially ambiguous.

Came for Natasha Khan, stayed for the trailer.

I neither owned a PC, PS1 or Dreamcast when that game came out so no I had never heard of Urban Chaos before just now :)

I just might get a Vita for this game. Also, I kinda wish Conner in AC III would look more like he belonged in the Revolution time period. He stands out way too much with the iconic assassin outfit, whereas Aveline here looks a lot more natural.

Posted by User_Undefined

This and Persona 4 Golden (and to a lesser extent, Gravity Rush) are the only titles that make me consider getting a Vita.

Edited by Rowr

Animation looks jerky as hell. There needs to be some selling of the character also, if it's just a generic one dimensional spin off character forget it.

Also give the "i would buy this if it wasnt on the vita" bullshit a rest, if you bothered to actually give it a glance you would realise it's actually a pretty decent system with some pretty decent games so far and your comments just demonstrate an uninformed arrogance.

Posted by JuggaloAcidman

I would like to play Assassins and Infamous for Vita... Everything else looks kind of boring. It's the PSP all over again!

Posted by BlackLagoon

Really looking forward to this one, it's by the team that did Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars... Kinda amusing that the guys responsible for the one stand out 3DS launch title are giving a solid bump to the Vita's game library.

Also Kim Evans from Call of Juarez: The Cartel, the one main character in the game who's not a complete bastard.

I like mobile, portable sized games on the GO or around the house thanks....if I want AC I can play on the TV. Figure it out SONY.

I wish all PSP and Vita games were playable on the PS3 as well. Not going to shell out extra cash for a handheld I don't need just to play on 5" in the sofa right next to my 104" projector screen. Not gonna happen..

Posted by halibut

I like that one of the accolades is "Best 25 trailers of E3!" I barely remember caring about 15 games from E3, so good job, I guess. 
 
In all seriousness, I wish this was coming to PS3/360. There's so much interesting shit they could do with a black female character, but I probably won't ever get a Vita to be able to experience this. Portable gaming just isn't part of my life.

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

"Most kick-ass female lead" and "[one of the] best 25 trailers of E3," say publications with no self-respect.

Posted by Dad_Is_A_Zombie

I'm an Assassin's Creed fan so I'm interested. Not until it's ported to the PS3 of course, but still interested.

Honestly, that's one of the things that has me most interested in this game. There are still too damned few games that have a good, strong, non-sexualized female lead, let alone one of African descent. Kind of a shame that this is a Vita exclusive where she'll get less exposure due to the install base. I'm really looking forward to this one.

Posted by RandyTandy

This is basically the same trailer from E3; looking forward to seeing more from it.

I @Vitor: It's depressing that featuring a black female protagonist in a game is considered a bold move.

Posted by Vitor

@RandyTandy: I know, right? I wish it wasn't a big deal but in the current gaming climate it totally is.
