Trivia

Copy protection

The PC version originally required a permanent internet connection even in single-player. Some time later, Ubisoft removed this copy protection and the game only requires a one-time activation since then.

References

There is a moment during the game when the main character Ezio comes across his uncle named Mario. Ezio does not recognize him at first until his uncle tells him "It's a-me, Mario!". Either a coincidence or a homage to Nintendo's mascot.
