Assassin's Creed Skinny

Secrets of Assassin's Creed Leaked? on IGN (*Spoiler Alert*) relates a tidbit from an IGN TV interview with Kristen Bell, in which the Veronica Mars actress seems to reveal a science fiction component for what has been characterized as a medieval-themed game: "It's actually really interesting to me. It's sort of based on the research that's sort of happening now, about the fact that your genes might be able to hold memory. And you could argue semantics and say it's instinct, but how does a baby bird know to eat a worm, as opposed to a cockroach, if its parents don't show it? And it's about this science company trying to, Matrix-style, go into peoples brains and find out an ancestor who used to be an assassin, and sort of locate who that person is."
