Trivia: Assassin's Creed: Revelations

  • Contest Winner Cameo: At several moments during the game, you may notice a female singer oohing and aahing along with the main theme in certain emotionally charged situations, such as when Alta´r talks in the Black Room with Abbas, whom he has just shot. She was chosen by a contest hosted by Ujam.com, judged by Hans Zimmer and two other members of the Assassin's Creed dev team.
  • Fan Nickname: Leandros is more commonly known as "Evil Bald Guy With A Cape," thanks to Tobuscus' literal trailer, which pegs him as, well, an evil bald guy with a cape.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
    • Suleiman sounds a lot like Malik.
    • Shao Jun is both Ezio's sister and his daughter (and speaks to the latter).
    • One of Leandros' men sounds like Cesare Borgia.
    • The Assassin Recruit you pick up in the side mission The Brawler is voiced by Tom Curry, most well known for voicing Zevran Arainai- an assassin in his own right.
    • A lot of the people Alta´r saved from guards in the first game have their voices show up here, especially the women Ezio saves who join the order.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Alta´r's voice now has a more fitting accent, curtesy of Cas Anvar.
    • Played straight with the protagonists for the Russian version. The previous games seemed to have either used the same VA for Desmond, Ezio and Alta´r or exceptionally similarly sounding ones. This game is the first where you can honestly say that they are voiced by different actors.
    • played with in the german version: Altair now has another actor (the same voice as Ezio) but still doesn┤t speak with an accent.
    • Also played straight in the North American version with Subject 16, who is now voiced by Graham Cuthbertson, rather than Cam Clarke, who portrayed him in ACII and Brotherhood.
  • What Could Have Been: Revelations originally began development for the Nintendo 3DS under the name Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy in 2010, but was instead turned into a console/PC game when the game proved to be too large for the 3DS to handle. A reference to the original "Lost Legacy" name is still present in the game as the name of one of the final missions.
