Introducing Assassin’s Creed Shadows: Feudal Japan Edition – A Dynamic Duo of Female Ninja and Samurai in an African Setting

Ubisoft has unveiled Assassin’s Creed Shadows, the latest installment in the Assassin’s Creed series. Set in 16th century Japan during the Late Sengoku Period, the game follows two protagonists: Naoe, a female ninja whose village was wiped out by Nobunaga’s army, and Yasuke, an African samurai who was captured and brought to Japan as a slave before becoming a samurai under Nobunaga’s command. The storyline revolves around their encounter with Nobunaga, showcasing their different perspectives and gameplay styles.

By choosing Yasuke as the main character, Ubisoft offers a unique viewpoint for non-Japanese players to explore Japan during that era. Yasuke’s status as a foreigner turned samurai provides an intriguing narrative, allowing players to delve into his journey of adaptation and alliance with Nobunaga. While historical details about Yasuke remain ambiguous, Ubisoft’s creative liberty adds depth and connection to the Assassin’s Creed universe.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows introduces new gameplay elements like seasonal cycles and dynamic lighting effects that impact gameplay. The expansive world of Japan is beautifully crafted, inviting players to explore its diverse landscapes and locations. Developed primarily by Ubisoft Quebec, known for their work on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the game also involves teams from Ubisoft in Tokyo and Osaka, along with experts in Japanese history.

Scheduled for release on November 15th for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Amazon Luna, Mac, and PC (available on Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store), Assassin’s Creed Shadows promises an immersive and captivating experience for fans of the franchise.

TLDR: Ubisoft introduces Assassin’s Creed Shadows, set in 16th century Japan with two diverse protagonists, offering a fresh perspective on Japanese history and gameplay elements, releasing on November 15th for various platforms.
