Hidden blade upgrades unlocked in Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines available in Assassin’s Creed II; vice versa

Submitted by on Monday, 20 July 20093 Comments

Assassin's Creed IIAs the lines between Sony’s hardware continues to blur, it’s becoming increasing difficult to report on one PlayStation flavour without dipping into the other.

We already mentioned how Sony’s smaller device will be getting Valkyria Chronicles 2, but now it’s time to discuss how Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines on the PSP will impact its bigger cousin Assassin’s Creed II on the PS3. And vice versa.

Weapons, health and treasure unlocked in one of the games will become available in the other.

Reported over at Kotaku, Griptonite Studio’s Frederic Lefrancois has explained the complimentary system:

“As players unlock health and Hidden blade upgrades in Assassin’s Creed 2 PS3, the same upgrades will be unlocked in Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines. It also works the other way round: on the PS3 you will be able to access any Templar Coins and special weapons you’ve collected on the PSP.”

It would appear Sony are finally beginning to leverage the fact that they have a killer handheld device and a next-gen console that can interact with one another. And if Ubisoft’s plans of cross-game convergence are successful, we’re assuming it’s only a matter of time before this symbiotic relationship is seen in more titles in the future.

Fingers crossed this dual hardware arrangement proves successful. As fans of both the PS3 and the PSP we welcome any interaction between the two devices as it promotes both quality systems at the same time. It also offers something extra to fans of all of the consoles currently available when it comes to choosing which multi-platform game to get on which console.
