Companion Applications are an interesting concept in a lot of ways because you’re basically trying to take advantage of the mobile gaming industry, and the gaming industry in general, by extending the functionality of your game to include mobile devices.

Ubisoft has already released a companion app for the Assassin’s Creed IV game as well as Assassin’s Creed Pirates onto Android. But as for an actual Assassin’s Creed game, there isn’t one yet.

Ubisoft has decided to team up with two other companies, GREE and PlayNext, for the development and eventual release of a new Assassin’s Creed game for mobile devices called Assassin’s Creed Memories.

Tired of Ubisoft news today? No? Good because here is some more.

Well we know have a few more details, a release time frame and screenshots to take a look at.
So far the only real Assassin’s Creed love Android has gotten is in the form of some mildly decent Java port from Gameloft. Well that is about to change as GREE, along with Ubisoft, have officially announced a new addition to the series that will be coming to mobile called Assassin’s Creed Utopia. Something they have hinted at over the past month or so.
We have a two part bit of news to talk about in this article. One of the major social gaming companies that is planning to expand into the US and UK this year called GREE will also be bringing with it a completely new Assassin’s Creed title.
