Vin Hill is an artist just starting out in the video game business. He is also a man with a very clear idea of what a Japanese Assassin's Creed could look like.
Vin Hill has a bright future.
I hate giving clicks to Kotaku, but this was too awesome not to.
these Ubisoft lame developers dont even dared to touch ancient japan as it would be a totally failure in comparison to other original japanese developed games who depict ancient japan ...the AC series owe his success because it depicts some historical time periods (ultra unrealistically i could say) while nobody other has done it (in the blind the one eyed is king) ..but the same doesnt go for japan where they tend to showcase their history every time is possible and their specific way of depicting it can not be touched by westerners ...lame hypocrites Ubisoft are lame
I dunno why Ubi said it was a boring setting. There's a whole lot of history they could use in Japan if they'd just look. They even have that whole Assaulting any foreigner bit that was brought about by Christianity for a time. Right there's the Templar connection since they tied them to the Vatican.
I would have likely given Assassin's Creed a chance if it was set in an South East Asian setting.
Very cool. Would play it......
It will happen eventually, trust me.
Surely this has to happen eventually. Right? I mean just by popular demand, china or Japan would be awesome. Ancient Egypt would also be cool.
That would be amazing! but what I'm really waiting for is Assassin's Creed- Cybertron, Now that would be a money maker!
I think its gotten to the point they should do it and get it over with and besides the setting isn't going to determine if its boring by itself the story as a whole is start off in Japan and then have the character sail around other parts of Asia hell depending on the time period chosen you can have Ship Battles again making Black Flag fans interested again after Unity stated that it had no ship warfare or maybe the can be more last samurai and show off the samurai-industrial transition of not just Japan but all of asia
