Ubisoft Censors Assassin’s Creed III Trailer For North American Audience

Remember this trailer? It launched just yesterday and features all sorts of new and exciting footage from Assassin's Creed III. However, a few snippets of action are actually missing. That's right, North American gamers received a censored version of the video that lacks a particularly violent scene in which Connor takes out a few Americans.

If you check out the UK version of the same trailer below, you'll notice that around the 2:09 mark, our protagonist rips into a couple of soldiers clad in blue.

What do you think of this change? Was the censorship really necessary? Personally, I find it totally ridiculous. If we're going to be killing soldiers on both sides of the Revolution, why hold back in the trailer? Hey, don't you dare accuse me of being unpatriotic!
