Could This Be Your Assassin's Creed III Protagonist?

Some art that's supposedly promotional material for Assassin's Creed III has popped up online, depicting a Native American assassin holding a tomahawk with a blade shaped like the Assassin's Creed symbol. He looks suitably badass, perched on a rock, tomahawk in one hand, flintlock pistol in the other, as rain lashes down upon his blood-soaked robes.
In short, it looks completely awesome, and if it turns out to be legitimate - which we're hoping it is - then you can colour us very much interested in Assassin's Creed III. If the artwork proves to be on the level, it also means that rumours of the game being set during American Revolution are actually on the money.
The image below was apparently snapped by a Best Buy employee and sent along to Kotaku, with news that there'll be pre-order incentives on offer (a no-brainer that one) and more info forthcoming on March 5th. For now though, we have what may or may not be a kosher piece of promo artwork, and a date for Assassin's Creed III from Ubisoft. October 30th, 2012 folks. October 30th... Check out the artwork below.
