Last time I saw anything retro-centric in the latest version of Ubisoft’s super-tough motocross game, it was an homage to old-school games of yore. That was cool. But this — an incredibly accurate remake of the first Donkey Kong — is insane. It’s the work of track creator PATI-I, who nails the look of the famous Nintendo arcade game dead to rights.
I’m yet to be convinced that a series like Assassin’s Creed really needs co-op. Personally? I’d prefer a from-the-ground-up reinvention of the Assassin’s Creed formula but that doesn’t mean I can’t be tempted! This new gameplay footage, complete with a talk through from Unity’s Creative Director, provides an insight into how ‘heist’ missions.
Ubisoft has been more supportive of Nintendo’s Wii U than most of its peers, but the company has also remained wary of the console’s weak commercial performance. In a recent interview, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot sounded more doubtful than ever about the prospects of selling his hit Assassin’s Creed games on the Wii U.

After sorting out a director earlier this year and with Michael Fassbender lined up for the role of series’ protagonist Desmond Miles, the in-production Assassin’s Creed movie looks like it’ll happen… eventually. Apparently there were rumours Fassbender had departed the project, but it turns out that’s not the case, according to the man himself.
