Here’s a rundown on the game, plus the reveal trailer:


You decide whether to play a Shinobi or Samurai. Approach quests with whichever character you prefer, as each possesses their own respective progression, stats, skills, and gear.

  • NAOE – Trained as a shinobi Assassin from Iga Province, Naoe Fujibayashi sets out to travel through Japan on a quest for revenge to honor impossible promise.
  • YASUKE – After becoming a loyal samurai for Oda Nobunaga, Yasuke finds a new purpose confronting the demons of his past.


  • EXPLORE FEUDAL JAPAN – Discover the captivating open world of Feudal Japan, from spectacular castle towns and bustling ports to peaceful shrines and pastoral landscapes. Adventure through unpredictable weather, changing seasons, and reactive environments.
  • BECOME A SHINOBI ASSASSIN – As the quick-witted and agile Naoe, use noise, light, and shadows to evade detection as enemies respond to their changing surroundings. Distract guards using kunai, shuriken, and smoke bombs, infiltrate enemy bases with your grappling hook and parkour skills, and assassinate your targets with the hidden blade.
  • BECOME A LEGENDARY SAMURAI – As the legendary and charismatic samurai Yasuke, strike your foes with brutal precision and power. Use his combat-oriented skills to attack, block, parry, and defeat your enemies. Master the vast arsenal of weapons at your disposal – featuring katana, kanabo, bows, naginata, and more – to free Japan from its oppressors.
