That said, it is with great hope that Assassin's Creed III Liberation appears to be taking the latter route in a better direction. Ubisoft is taking this opportunity to create a solid, unique experience that differs from the console release while hopefully still feeling every bit as complete. In this latest dev diary the team at Ubisoft shares a little more info about the game. While we still don't know if this portable experience is segmented into missions like many other portable versions attempt do, but the core gameplay looks solid enough to support this one either way. There are even story crossovers to be found here, as the main character Aveline will meet up with the console version's protagonist Conner at certain points.
If this formula succeeds maybe the next round of portable versions for major releases will be deeper than they have been in the past. Stay tuned as this one nears launch for more details, but for now Liberation has given me hope that a brighter future for Vita and 3DS releases exists.
