Assassin's Creed Unity Kittens Is the Cutest Video You'll See This Weekend

Nothing is true, everything is purrmitted.

129 Comments

With their affinity for hunting, sneaking, and hidden blade-like retractable claw, cats are really the assassins of the animal world. They're not as intimidating when they're kittens dressed up as assassins from the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity, but what they lack in deadliness they more than make up for in cuteness.

YouTube user Mr.TVCow posted the video above, in which four hooded kittens hunt down a french soldier, much like like in a number of trailers for Assassin's Creed Unity. They use their eagle vision ability, parkour after their target, and perform lethal aerial assassinations, and yes, it's as unbearably adorable as it sounds.

Assassin's Creed Unity launches November 11 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Another game, Assassin's Creed Rogue, is also launching on that day, but it's coming only to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Ubisoft has not yet announced a DLC pass for Assassin's Creed Rogue, but we do know about its preorder bonuses.

As cute as these are, I gotta say, the quality of content on GS is declining. And sharply at that.

I was trying to keep a stern demeanor throughout that video, but that second kill broke me as I thought about how they might have got the shot. Do you think someone actually threw that kitten at the guy?

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> It might be montage. Like they threw kitten in the air where its safe for him to land and all and take a shot from a right angle. Then edited to look like its attacked human, since you can't really see a cat no where near him at the time of the impact. And after all it should have taken more than one take to film that part so I don't think they all the time was just throwing cat at the guy. Though I think cat had some nice jumping to do at least for a few times.

<< LINK REMOVED >> That's the point where I lost it too. Looked like it came straight out of one of their regular trailers but with a kitten. I have to imagine the cat was thrown. That's roughly the shape my cat takes when thrown =)

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I'd argue children are already self centred and lazy. As we grow up, we simply learn how to make it less obvious.

Seriously cute. Now I am fully expecting to spend my time in Unity rescuing kittens, training them and then summoning them after dropping a smoke bomb in the middle of a bunch of enemies just to see the smoke clearing and the enemies all dead while the kittens lick their paws. Make it happen!

Yes, I agreed. I hope Ubisoft reading this comment, better than AC IV Black Flag we could only pat the cat not using them hehehe
