View Full Version : Let's speculate on "Assassin's Creed: Rising Sun (Probably)"

I'm just trying to confirm the authenticity of the rumors on Japan AC game.
OK.Let's look at the facts...
Alex Hutchinson said back in 2012 about AC game in Japan when most of the survey polls voted for Japan and WW2 that:"You could always do it, but the point I was trying to make was that in the broad strokes and scale of history, [feudal Japan is] a theme that's been well-mined in video games,So, Assassin's Creed is one of those games that can take [lesser-known] time periods or corners of the world and make them cool, fun, new, and refreshing.Feudal Japan would work as an Assassin's game, for sure.But I feel like it would start to look like oh, have I played this?' You know what I mean--'oh, I've been a ninja before, I've been a samurai before.'"
Then we get this:http://metro.co.uk/2015/01/28/japan-is-location-for-assassins-creed-2016-hints-art-book-5039197/
The leaked screenshot was teasing Japan setting since Black Flag:

Now Ubisoft worked on Anvil next engine to allow designers to add buildings and cities EXTREMELY fast:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGA0WZLp_08

This confirms the dense city of AC Victory's London. Also this might mean that the Japan game (Rising sun-if rumors are true) would be set in a time when there were dense cities and also forests and hills connected (Anvil Next=seamlessness:don't forget that ,or ALEX AMANCIO will forum-assassinate you through Mr.Shade who knows every crad and crevices of these forums).(After Victory people would become "Urban-phobic" and want some change to explorable areas which is why Rising Sun could include dense cities AS WELL AS explorable forests like in AC3 and so AC:Rising Sun will/could/may/might/should/probably have both Urban and Rural life mixed)
Then a guy at wordpress goes insane to get a job at Ubisoft and starts posting these:

https://vinhillart.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/morningmeeting.png?w=439&h=261&crop=1
(WOW,the do seem authentic...NAH,not buying it...)
And even as ridiculous as this:
https://vinhillart.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/colourthumbs_01.png?w=435&h=261&crop=1
Then there are articles that say that Japan AC game might not be bad because:https://www.the-newshub.com/gaming/ubisoft-can-make-an-assassins-creed-game-in-japan-doesnt-have-to-be-a-cliche

Well?

Can I just clarify something? Vin, (the guy who made this art) also coined the term Rising Sun. His vision of Rising Sun is not of a Feudal Japan, it is set in the Meiji Restoration in 1868. Therefore Rising Sun is not a Feudal game.

There are many I know who want a game set in Japan and many who don't. The majority of them seem to want a Feudal game. I've never been interested in it personally. My #1 requested setting for a long time has been Japan during the Boshin War (a result of the Restoration.) There are many reasons I've been interested in this like: availability of more modern technology, beautiful Japanese urban and rural settings, conflict between two groups, and it is set around the time of Victory so Rising Sun could release in 2016. I'm personally not interested in ninjas and the beliefs that Samurai vs. Ninja = Templar vs. Assassin. Ninjas had faded into obscurity by 1868 and I'd only like to see them in a scene such as The Last Samurai (great movie.)

I really hope that we do get Japan for the next game as that image may suggest but I hope it is not of a Feudal Japan. One in 1868 would make more sense because of the trend of more modern games and I think it gives them twice the amount of interesting events and tech to work with.

Can we finish Victory first before speculating over Japan?

It's not even confirmed either.

But the thought of MR Japan instead of feudal intrigues me now... :p

That's the point of a forum, silly. :rolleyes: I don't expect anyone to do hardcore speculation on this, I'd just like to know who else wants a MR Japan. I better calm down before I get too exited though...

And that's great! I'm glad you're finally coming around to ol' Japan. :rolleyes:

It sure would.

Right here. Not sure if you were wanting to suggest a setting or are saying this is not worthy of a thread. :/ http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/910992-Future-Assassin-s-Creed-games-Location-amp-Setting-Discussion?highlight=future+settings+thread

No ads necessary lol
Also, speaking about ninjas from your post earlier - I really like your suggestion about obscurity or limited scenes (but it would make a lot of people angry probably)
EDIT: also I do hope - if it happens - Shaun makes fun of the ninja craziness in the db

NOTHING has been confirmed. You're just hyping yourself up for nothing.

For all people know, this could either be false or another chronicles. :rolleyes:

But since you mentioned DLC's of all things, I'll just assume you're trolling.

On topic, although the idea of having a setting in Japan is enticing for me, it is pointless to speculate on something that might not even happen. Let's just focus on ACV.

The whole "fixing history" thing is kinda in game already anyway with the whole "and then (protag's name) dissapeared from history" and "that's what happens when Templars stop being important like de la Serre"
