With the release of the next 'proper' Assassin's Creed III on consoles, it's quite tempting to push Liberation, on the PS Vita, to the side. But this new game footage makes a pretty solid argument for its existence.
To begin with, I love the idea of delving into the history of slavery in the US, and I love the idea of playing as a female Assassin. It's also worth noting that Ubisoft has rarely put a step wrong with Assassin's Creed. I actually loved the Assassin's Creed II spin off games, and while there's no way Liberation can possibly achieve the same scope as Assassin's Creed III, I still like the idea of a focused story in a similar time period and universe.
