Not all Nintendo Directs are alike, and with the Japanese version of Thursday’s hype train ride, a few different titles got some time in the spotlight. Ubisoft’s upcoming installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be appearing on the Nintendo Switch, but with some restrictions.

Titled Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Cloud Version, Ubisoft is following in the footsteps of Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version by streaming the game live from a more powerful machine. You will need a stable internet connection to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on your Nintendo Switch, but you’ll be able to play it in handheld and docked modes.

The game will release on October 5th at cost 8,400 Yen (about $74.96) for a rental of 730 days (2 years).
