Artists are doing all sorts of incredible things with the Assassin’s Creed franchise. We’ve seen everything from video mash-ups, to drawings of Ezio done in salt, and now a Production EtiLego has re-created the entire Assassin’s Creed 3 debut trailer using only Lego and their awesome stop-motion skills. The video is incredibly hokey, but man is it cool.
All of the scenes from the original video are faithfully re-created using Lego, and what I assume are a few minor modifications to the set pieces and Lego people. I’m fairly certain there’s no official Lego version of Connor, for instance, but they’ve done well enough cobbling their own together. Then we have the fight sequences, which are truly a… feast for the eyes? Everyone looks either stone-faced or outright happy with being chopped and shot to little pieces by Connor.

Though the entire trailer was fantastic in its own cutesy, 1960s robotic sort of way, my favourite part by far was the end scene with all the soldiers happily marching to their death. There’s serious music booming, and it’s war time, and people are messing each other up with black power rifles, and these guys are like, whatever. Perhaps Ubisoft will decide to add in a Lego version of Connor as a secret unlockable skin? I guarantee people would love the shit out of something like that, especially if they made the characters animations as jerky and sporadic as in this fan trailer.
Production EtiLego has done quite a few Lego centric videos, and I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a whole lot more AC inspired ones in the coming months. Make sure to head over to their Facebook page for more information, and most likely the announcement of more videos in future.
