Assassin's Creed Odyssey is an upcoming role-playing game in the staple Assassin's Creed franchise from Ubisoft. Over the past several years, the games have been exclusive to PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. According to IGN, the last time an Assassin's Creed experience came to a Nintendo console was with 2013's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. However, that's about to change very soon!
Today, Nintendo announced that Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Cloud Edition would launch on the Nintendo Switch in Japan. At the moment, it just seems to be a limited release for the Japanese market. It's unclear when, or if, the game will launch in other countries. If you're a Nintendo Switch owner and want to play it outside of Japan, be sure to let Ubisoft know.
Just like Resident Evil 7: Cloud Edition, the game streams to the system from the internet. Keep in mind that game streaming presents issues with image quality and lag, so these factors need to be taken into account when making a purchasing decision. Assassin's Creed Odyssey features skill-based combat so input lag might be a significant issue.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey should launch on October 5, 2018. The cloud version for the Nintendo Switch should also release the same day. It's unclear how the pricing model works, but it's expected to be similar to Resident Evil 7: Cloud Edition. Customers may have to purchase a ¥2,000 ticket which lasts six months. It's unclear if there will be an option to outright purchase the game for your console.
