I was thinking about a racist joke for japan, then I thought about Samuri times and all that.
Thought it would make a bad *** theme.
Not sure if someone already brought it up tho.

I think that's the most unoriginal idea ever.

Ubisoft already said it's one of the least likely-to-happen ideas, even it's one of the most suggested.

That has been suggested a million times. Would be cool but hey, what about Belgium, with cities like Ghent, Bruge, ... In 1539, the revolt of Ghent, an uprising by the citizens of Ghent against the regime of the Holy Roman Emperor and Spanish King Charles V. Or maybe some other period. I'm convinced the setting would be perfect for an AC.

Assassin Creed location for any setting or not, Bruges is a beautiful city.

I would love to see an AC in Belgium. Or Prague.

A game that take us in a tour around Europe visiting several cities that for reasons have little chances of appearing in a normal game, could be interesting.

That would make an awesome setting...Bruge that is.

Any setting with dense architecture that's fun to free run on. Also...any time period OTHER than the 1700's. Please.

Eh... I used to cite this quote too, but there are just SO many people involved with AC that I'm no longer convinced that it won't happen. I mean, we've had a different creative director for each game four years in a row. We went from Patrice to Amancio to Hutchinson to Ashraf within just four console releases. I think it was Hutchinson who made the comments about Japan, but really, how much of a say does he even have anymore? Fan requests for Feudal Japan are through the roof (like two-thirds of the fan art I've seen is devoted to it, not counting the stuff relating to the games that are already out/announced, and it's winning by a HUGE margin in the AC wiki's "where would you like to see an AC game" poll) so I'm fairly certain that they'll at least consider it.

HA HA....

no. -_-

I just want something other than flintlocks, muskets, british in red coats (and other colored coats), etc.

Even the Italian Renaissance really only got 2 games (2 and Brotherhood) since Revelations was set in Constantinople, the architecture, the cultures, etc. were completely different. Even Ezio himself was less flamboyant in that game. He had no wide open collar...flap thingies like he had in 2 and Brotherhood, his outfit didn't have a cape, etc.

So now we've had 2 games of 1700's type stuff: similar architecture (aside from Havana), similar mentalities, pirates were in both games, etc.

Time to move on. I'm all for asian setting... China, Japan, whatever. I'd love to be able to run around as a Japanese Assassin. They could make the special unlockable armor (similar to the Armor of Altair, Brutus, and Ishak Pasha) the Armor of some famous Samurai who used to be an Assassin and have some wicked looking Samurai Armor mixed with a classic Assassin hood, symbol, etc. The architecture would be new and fun, etc. I am uncertain if the cities in Feudal Japan would be fun to free run around... Maybe China had bigger and more dense cities? But I wouldn't mind them taking artistic license and making the cities more fun to free run around since they've done that since the first game anyway. I just don't want another AC3 where the parkour got old since the cities were sucky to free run around.

Shame that India got the comic book treatment. Before it I was sure we were going to see an India AC sooner or later. :(

For the Japan they were mostly reserved because mostly of the Tenchu Stealth Assassin Series, it was very similar in some points, and it was an issue with the Ninja and Assassin.... something like that - Also back in time, they said that any AC will never take place to a place that had been already seeing in a videogame - Don't remember which UBI's executive said that? So, since they change with the pirate them for AC4 (It is concretely the only AC that is involved in a time period and theme already seeing in some other games) So, perhaps someday, Japan could come.

I agree with this post, I too am sick of the 1700 settings and want to see an Assassin's Creed game set in China. Maybe have Shao Junn as the protagonist?

Samurai assassins would indeed be awesome, I can imagine a great hood/samurai armor combo in my head right now.

That's what I mean; they already broke their initial statement of "we're not doing any period that's already been in games" by going with pirates, so Japan could easily be on the docket. Besides, the Tenchu series is basically dead now, with FromSoftware focusing on the Souls series, so I don't really think there would be a conflict of interests there.

Personally I'd prefer to follow Shao Jun in China for our first East Asian game, but Feudal Japan would be great too.

While cool i find most of these designs exaggerated, i would go with something like this but with a hood.
