Two of Assassin’s Creed‘s finest games are coming to Nintendo Switch for one very affordable price. Check out the trailer for Assassin’s Creed: The Rogue Collection, featuring Black Flag and Rogue.

In the many circles of the Assassin’s Creed fandom, the story of Black Flag is regarded as one of the best in the series. Black Flag featured unique combat mechanics, boat battles, and incredible the incredible story of Edward Kenway (Matt Ryan), the most feared pirate in the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue featured a bold, dark storyline, as you played Shay Patrick Cormac, a former member of the Brotherhood-turned Assassin Hunter. It was the first time players got to experience life as a Templar. Rogue was actually a solid game, but it wasn’t as highly-touted, mainly because it released at an unfortunate time. Rogue released roughly around the same time as Assassin’s Creed: Unity, which turned out to be a massive blemish on the franchise.

Nevertheless, both titles will now become part of the Nintendo Switch library, as part of the Assassin’s Creed: The Rogue Collection. During today’s Nintendo Direct, Ubisoft unveiled this exciting new trailer…

Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection includes:

  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Players will sail into the Golden Age of Piracy, where pirates have established their own lawless Republic. Playing as Edward Kenway, the most feared pirate captain in the Caribbean, players will take part in world-famous battles, discover hidden treasures, and earn the respect of legendary characters like Blackbeard. The game’s vast open world features countless remote islands where corruption, greed, and cruelty are commonplace.
  • All single-player DLCs, including Aveline and Freedom Cry. Play as Aveline during a rogue period of self-discovery, unsure of her alliances, but more committed than ever to defending and liberating slaves. In Freedom Cry, former slave Adewale finds freedom as a pirate aboard Edward Kenway’s ship. 15 years later, Adewale becomes a trained Assassin to free the slaves and avenge them. Both these DLCs and more will be available in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
  • Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Amidst the chaos of the French and Indian War, players will embrace one man’s slow descent into darkness, forever shaping the future of the American colonies.
