Is the next Assassin's Creed game heading to feudal Japan where Samurai and Ninjas reside? With the recent Square/Ubisoft collaboration, anything is permitted.
As long as I can run and jump across rooftops effortlessly we could be going to Sesame Street before all I care. When I think Assassin's Creed in Japan, I think Shinobi, it could actually make for an interesting change of direction for the series.
My personal choices are either Victorian England or Feudal Japan. Those two locations would make interesting settings for the next major Assassin's Creed title.
I want a ninja stealth game, is there a good one available? There is nothing Ninjk about Ninja Gaiden except maybe Ryu's gi (ninja outfit) If Assassin's Creed 3 can implement a stealth system for these rumoured ninjas then I'm game.
If you have a 360 track down Tenchu Z. If you're going to get the PS Vita than get Shinobido 2.
I doubt this current story line will head to Japan. It just would not make sense, although it would be cool, since every game has revolved around the Mediterranean/Middle East. For them to suddenly shift the story to Japan(remember we are playing as Desmond's ancestors) would not make sense. AC3 will take place in Europe/Middle East again, possibly some US settings thrown in. My guess is the French Revolution since it would fit with the story. Rich and wealthy royalty(Templars) trying to hold onto power and suppress the middle/lower class(Assassins). Once the main story ends in AC3 Ubisoft will make a spin off or create another timeline in a different setting.
im not really against this, but im more excited about the revolutionary war time set in new york to be honest.
I'm hoping for it to take place in the late 17th century, American Revolution, French Revolution. Think of the Possibilities.
I really hope its not heading to japan. I'd rather see the 17th century stuff like rainbow said.
While an Assassin's Creed set in Japan with ninjas would be amazing, it just wouldnt make sense with the current storyline. Maybe a spin-off? With some other test subject's ancestor?
Well the introduction of the character Shao Yun in Embers suggests it could be China, not Japan. And maybe we'll even play as Shao - A female protagonist would be a pretty bold direction for the series. Only how would Desmond fit into that...? Honestly though I think it'd be a lot cooler if in the central vault, Desmond finds an Animus that lets him live the life of a super futuristic First Civilization Assassin, and then through that he learns how to stop the solar flare thing, as well as a few new tricks to help him in the present day. Also, we know from the truth video in Brotherhood that Desmond has some sort of ancestor from the first civilization. So it could work. Imagine that, a whole new fictional time period with it's own style altogether. I'd love if they did that.
Impossible. Shao Yun has NO relation to Desmond, meaning how would it be possible for him to access her memories. Also, it would be way to close in time to Ezio, and considering the next game is AC3, it needs to be a significant jump in time and setting. I'm personally hoping for Victorian England, realistic, advances through time, and closes the gap/relation between his ancestors towards America. As awesome as Feudal Japan or Ancient Egypt will be, I hope they make them spin-off titles for difference Subjects.
Well the crusades lasted from the 11th till the 13th century, the renaissance from the 14th till the 17th. There's not a huuuge gap between Altair and Ezio's timelines relatively speaking. Roughly a century. As for fuedal japan, they'd probably do the edo period or something, meaning the 17th till the late 19th and that's not too close at all. As for imperial China, well, that stretches from BC up till the early 20th century, so definitely something they could use in there. I know Shao Yun has no relation to Desmond and I mentioned that. But why need the next protagonist even be Desmond? Why couldn't it be a girl? They might need information that Desmond can't access. Anyway I'd rather they didn't set it in either if those places. I definitely think the earth of the First Civilization would be amazing. That'd give them much more room for exposition. They wouldn't have to make us trudge through all the irrelevant historical stuff that weighs down the story so much.
