I haven't finished AC:R yet, (pretty boring tbh, nothing new worth mentioning about, and everything looked copied & paste with few modification to exterior designs).

With the introduction of Shao Jun pursuing a way to restore her people's order against the emperor, anyone thinks this is a hint that AC3 will set in China featuring Shao Jun or possibly a Chinese Assassin around the 16-1800s?

If so, I think it would be awesome!
I loved the emperor's assassins in this film, freaking cool! Now that's what I call great aesthetic feel of an assassin theme.
Not that Italian brotherhood order, it doesn't feel assassin-ish, it feels more like a kamikaze -act-cool-expose-self-as-much-as-possible- type of "warrior"

tbh, I actually enjoyed Ember more than AC:R currently.

If it is set in China, I'd like it not to go down the whole "ninja" route.

That would just be slightly cheap.

I'd hope that they can invest a story with a good narrative to it.

True on the italian part. But would it make sense that Desmond's not so distant (@200 years)ancestors were asian?
Wouldn't so few passed generations surly have an impact on the 2012's Desmond apperance/ethnicity? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Also, you call the "hook and run" move boring? I think it's awesome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Because China has everything to do with Masonic Eyes and Phrygian Caps!

I'd rather it was set somewhere in Europe or Egypt than the Asian flare. But I'll be fine with wherever they go as long as the Protagonist is charismatic & kool.

Well not as far as we know. Technically she could be (though it's highly unlikely).
Anyways you're right. We already knew there were assassins in China which is not by far enough reason to assume that AC3 will take place there. We also know there were assassin orders in England, Germany, India and basically every country near the Mediterranean Sea. Any of those are at least as good candidates as China.

Holy shi* i think it would have been a great idea to be Shao becouse of her hidden blade :O We all want something new so why not right ? The combat would be fully revamped(did i write that right?)And last but not least female protagonist http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Wait a minute i think i see the possibility of lesbian courtesans http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah, I loved her hidden blade placement, very secretive use. And I think the placement of the blade would allow for more acrobatic kills, which I find appealing. But anyways, I'd rather play a male char than female =P

I would`nt mind a female Protagonist, on one condition though..

She has to be an absolute Badass..

SPOILER
Now that Desmond and co. are in the area around New York, I think it's become increasingly likely to be set during the Revolutionary War in the US; with an ancestor of his discovering and entering the Grand Temple during that period. This is the only reason I can think of that would allow for Desmond to be forced to investigate the memories of yet another ancestor.

I've yet to see a not badass Assassin.

Anyway am I right in thinking we can't play a female ancestor because all their sex cells are created at birth so no memories are recorded? If so Shao Jun as a playable character is out. Although it'd be pretty interesting playing one of her recruits (when she's established an order obviously), or maybe have her at the same level as you, while you both work to set up an order.

Hey look another topic about Japan which is a terrible idea just because someone thinks a blade in the shoe is badass!

Which it is. But it isn't THAT cool.
