Ubisoft has joined forces with Japanese social gaming company, Gree, to release a new Assassin's Creed title on the mobile devices this December.

The first Assassin's Creed was released in 2007 and has spawned numerous sequels and spin-offs across PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, as well as mobile platforms such as Android and Windows Phone.

What will be new about this yet-be-be released addition to the Assassin's Creed family is the social gaming aspect.

Gree specialises in facilitating mobile social gaming through building an ecosystem of gamers and already works with major Japanese developers including Capcom and Konami and Capcom.

The company will be launching its Gree Platform later this year.

"Ubisoft and Gree are committed to delivering a new and innovative social gaming experience to the franchise, available exclusively on the Gree Platform and through iOS and Android devices," Ubisoft said in a statement.

The new Assassin's Creed mobile title will be available in English and Japanese.
