Okay, we get it -- Assassin's Creed II has a lot of cool weapons. Ezio's arsenal is massive compared to that of Assassin Creed's Altair.
But where does he get all of those wonderful toys? Leonardo DiVinci, apparently, who designs some killer (no pun intended) tools of assasination for Ezio in the sequel. The new trailer shows off the hidden blade, poison blade, the hidden gun, and -- wait for it -- the double hidden blade. That's just like the hidden blade it except there are two of them; that's what they mean by "double."
The game looks surprisingly good in this trailer, which gives me hope that the PlayStation 3 demo I played at Tokyo Game Show was an older build. The game both looked and played rough, which was disappointing, because I have high hopes. From what I understand from people who've seen more of the game than I have, it's been polished up a bit, which makes me happy -- I'm still looking forward to its November 17 release.
This probably isn't what you'll look like doing the Assassin's Creed parkour course
