According to information shared during today's Ubisoft Forward September Livestream, the upcoming mainline Assassin's Creed game will finally transport players to feudal Japan. The long-running Assassin's Creed series has been set in several places and eras over the years, from the British Isles of Assassin's Creed Valhalla from a year ago to the Middle East during the Third Crusade. Along the way, players have assumed the roles of various Assassins, each of whom has a unique motivation for joining this band of warriors in their combat with the evil Templars, which spans the past, present, and future. \n \nFeudal Japan is a well-known historical setting that Assassin's Creed fans have long hoped to explore in a video game. Some fans even went so far as to make prototype trailers for this potential sequel using Unreal Engine 5. It is simple to understand why this area and era, as well as the ninjas, samurai, mercenaries, and daimy leaders of the Edo Period between 1603 and 1868, would work well for the Assassin's Creed video game. \n \nSome suggest that instead of setting a Japanese Assassin's Creed at the Meiji Restoration at the end of the Edo Period, which would see the aging Tokugawa Shogunate clash with US forces in a way that would tie in with the franchise's themes fairly effectively, a Japanese Assassin's Creed should take place during the Edo Period. This would avoid a game feeling too similar to Ghost of Tsushima. The existence of an Assassin's Creed game set in Japan has, in either case, only been conjectured upon by eager fans. \n \nAssassin's Creed: Codename Red wasn't the only intriguing new Assassin's Creed project revealed during today's Ubisoft Forward September 2022 Livestream; the spin-off game for mobile devices, tentatively titled Assassin's Creed: Codename Jade, was also shown. Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Basim will be followed in Assassin's Creed Mirage as he progresses from a menial street thief in Baghdad to a competent Assassin in his own right. In addition, fans got to watch the first official video of the game.
