Gameloft has released details of its upcoming Assassin’s Creed game for the iPhone and iPod touch. A direct prequel to the console game of the same name, Assassin’s Creed puts players in control of a master assassin named Altair, sent to Jerusalem in the year 1191 AD to steal a chalice in order to end the Crusades. The game offers a mix of stealth, problem solving, and action, and features skill-based mini-games, cinematic cutscenes, the ability to upgrade Altair and his six different weapons, and 3D graphics. Assassin’s Creed for the iPhone and iPod touch is expected to launch next week; pricing has yet to be announced. Continue reading for more screenshots.

Yes!!! I just completed assassin’s creed on the computer and am disappointed that there isn’t a sequel/prequel to it available. Now that there will be, I can’t wait! I will definitely buy this game when it comes out.

This looks like a port of the Nintendo DS game.  I played that a while back, and it was pretty good.  Not sure how well the all-touch interface will work.  The DS game used touch and the buttons.
