Veronica Mars actress and newcomer Heroes Kristen Bell will appear in Assassin’s Creed, which is due out on PS3 and Xbox 360 later this month. She will play a key character in the game, whose role is an important part of the game’s storyline, though details weren’t provided.
“It was crucial to find an actress who could convey the emotional range and talent needed to play this key character in the Assassin’s universe,” said Jade Raymond, producer for Assassin’s Creed. “Kristen Bell is a remarkable actress who was able to bring her character to life in a dynamic way that I don’t think anyone else could have done properly. Her professionalism and dynamic personality were a perfect fit for this project.”
“I was a big video gamer growing up, so working on Assassin’s Creed is my chance to be a part of video game history,” said Kristen Bell. “It’s something completely different than what I’ve done before, so it’s cool I get to branch out and try another entertainment medium. I was attracted to this project because of the intelligent storyline and the character I play. Plus I admire the artistry of the graphics of video games. I look forward to seeing what my character will look like and I can’t wait to play the game and see if I can beat it!”
The game will also be available for PC later on. It will be available in standard and limited editions retailing for $59.99 and $69.99, respectively.
