Digital Kristin Bell to appear in Assassin’s Creed, kind of creeping us out

It isn’t a surprise that actress Kristin Bell is somehow associated with Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. In December of 2006, Bell opened her mouth and crapped all over the game’s “surprise twist” in a conversation with IGN, where she revealed that she’d be doing voice work for the game. 

Now Ubisoft is announcing it like our memories are too shot to remember that actually happened. The twist here is that the ex-Veronica Mars star isn’t just voicing a character in the game, but she’s actually in the game, playing an “important part of the game’s intricate storyline.”

“I was a big videogamer growing up, so working on Assassin’s Creed is my chance to be a part of videogame history,” said Bell.

A big videogamer, eh? Until Bell gives us a ring and challenges us to a game of Rainbow Six, we’re not sure if we’re buying it. That doesn’t mean we’re any less excited to see what her vacant, creepy likeness is up to when the game ships later this month.
