When we heard about the mysterious "Assassin's Creed: Rising Phoenix," we said we hoped it'd be a Vita game.

And now as it turns out, the unannounced new AC title might indeed be designed for Sony's new portable. Spanish retailer XtraLife had the game listed as a spin-off for the Vita; it was spotted by All Games Beta , although the listing has since been removed. The new game apparently held a release date of October 10.

If a new Assassin's Creed for the Vita does hit on the 10th, that's three weeks before Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is scheduled to launch. This isn't exactly unheard-of, as last year, Ubisoft released Assassin's Creed III: Liberation on the same day as ACIII for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Liberation was a good game; the developers just didn't do quite enough with the idea, so here's hoping Rising Phoenix is another step in the right direction.

There's no doubt that Vita owners could use some potential AAA software to get excited about. They deserve it.

1 can only hope! Sure would make sense since ACIIIL sold pretty well.

Maybe that's why there's so many people involved? If it's not, then who exactly is working with which game? Hmm…

AC3:Liberation was a top game – as Ben says, it had its rough corners, but it was a lot of fun. That said, I'm struggling to keep up with one Assassin's Creed game every year – if we get one on console and one on handheld it's going to be crazy!

It's true, I thought it was a great portable AC game. It really was rough around the corners but nothing that ruined the game. I spent 20 hours on it. 20 hours on a portable game is money in the bank if you ask me.
