Ubisoft has released the newest trailer for their Assassin's Creed 3 tie-in Liberation, exclusive to the PlayStation Vita. The 'Accolades' trailer features Aveline, a French-African assassin, in the midst of the Louisiana Rebellion -- a precursor to the American Revolution and the eventual Louisiana Purchase made by the newly formed United States. While gameplay is meant to be the focus of the trailer, its Aveline herself and the historical setting that prove most intriguing.

Aveline, you see, is the daughter of a French merchant and an African slave, living in New Orleans and a victim of plaçage -- the practice of pairing women of color with French or Spanish men in a "left-handed" wedding.

Sony unveiled a "Crystal White" PS Vita at its E3 2012 press conference in LA. It will be part of an exclusive bundle pack that will include the Vita-only chapter of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed franchise, Assassin's Creed III Liberation.

The game itself features a female assassin for the first time and is set during the same period as the main Assassin's Creed III game coming out for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

New outfits, characters for multiplayer gaming and such like will be available.
