New Assassin’s Creed II screens creep onto the net

An article written in a foreign language, new images hidden amidst high quality versions of the previously released Game Informer screens — it’s almost as if the images themselves have taken on attributes of their game’s main character.

Unfortunately new images don’t always mean new details and in this case we actually knew everything they could try to tell us. They do however give us a chance to see Ezio, the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed II, facing off against the new heavy and more fleet-footed enemy types and the first image of him wielding one of the new weapons, an axe.

The only release date we’ve gotten so far is Holiday 2009, which means there are at most 244 days until the franchise returns to consoles. Assassin’s Creed II will be available on Xbox 360, Wii and PS3, the sooner the better.
