For fans of the original, here's some information (with some SPOILERS included) about the new title.
I really enjoyed the first one despite some of it's glaring flaws. And I'm certain I'll be picking this one up as soon as it launches, as well. =)

"
- You'll have a ton of new weapons to choose from including an axe, a hammer, a mace, a spear, 2 different sword types, a spear axe thing, and 2 smaller blades
- You CAN swim
- Da Vincis workshop is in the game
- Locations include Saint Marks Basilica, The Grand Canal, The Little Canal, and the Rialto bridge.
- The game opens in 1476, Altair is from 1191
- So you do indeed play as a new ancestor of Altair / Desmond
-You will see the countryside of Tuscany
- The "Auditore" family is mentioned
- The main characters name is Ezio Auditore de Firenze

- New enemy types with unique attitudes and weaknesses are present in the game. Archers are mentioned, as well as elite enemies, dagger wielders, "Brutish" armored troops with heavy armor and 2 handed swords and axes, and an intelligent halberd enemy will probe hiding places with their weapons if they think you're near by.

And he has TWO hidden blades this time.

"So, we need to make a sequel, what are your ideas?"

"Well, he had a hidden blade in the first. How about we expand on that?"

"Sure, what did you have in mind?"

"I dunno, maybe he have...two this time?"

"Done. Let's get lunch. Good meeting guys."

Heheh. Damn skippy!
I'm really excited about the greater options of taking a person's weapon and killing them with it.
Especially since there are so many more weapons in the game this time. 8)
