Remember when people asked for a Feudal Japan game?

Assassin's Creed Memories is a card battling RPG that explores new areas the console and PC games have yet to feature.

When fans requested that the next Assassin's Creed game be set in Feudal Japan, this probably isn't what they meant. Ubisoft announced that Assassin's Creed Memories is available for free starting today on the iOS app store (no word on Android). According to the game's listing, it combines "card battle, RPG, and strategy gameplay" as well as "20 vs. 20 Guild vs. Guild combat."

But the most interesting inclusion in this new title are the new locations. In card-battling form, you'll be able to visit two locations that haven't come to the main series yet: Feudal Japan and Imperial Mongolia.

Is Ubisoft setting players up for further console adventures in these locations? Only time will tell. But there's no indication that the game's are tied to any upcoming titles. This isn't the first mobile game to carry the Assassin's Creed moniker, however. Assassin's Creed Pirates came out for both iOS and Android last year. And this fall, the Assassin's Creed story is splitting in two directions with Assassin's Creed: Rogue for 360/PS3 and Assassin's Creed: Unity for Xbox One/PS4/PC.

But what do you think about this lastest addition to the Assassin's Creed family? Even if you're not sold on card games, at the very least it's free, but do you want to see Ubisoft continue to experiment with bringing the franchise to these new genres?

Can't really say that I'm thrilled right now, but at least it has 2 Asian locations that people want to see in future AC titles.

No. No. NO. NO. NO. NO! NO!!!!!

What are you doing Ubisoft? You trying to fail hard like Square Enix with FF recently?

Inb4 pay to wait inb4 pay to win inb4 microtransactions at ridiculous prices inb4 Ubisoft loses all dignity, sanity, and respect from customers with asinine business moves.

The end is NIGH!!!

Kinda glad about this. Now it is a lot less likely that they will waste a console title on a location that I couldn't possibly give a fug less about.

I've marked down his response in order for a cold retaliation slap if they ever make his preferred location into an IOS game.

That sounds totally weird and not like anything I'd like to play. Unless it was a Street Fighter card game. Combining RPG/Card/RTS though... Who was smoking the crack at Ubisoft and came up with this?

Lol, I was worried about that. That's why I'm also not keen on anything that's made into to a card game.

Did you just summon a bunch of monsters in one turn?

Depends on what card you draw. I know you can only summon one monster per turn. Don't worry- I was being silly on purpose. :p

I actually like YuGiOh... well not competitive, I hate when they sell me cards and then tell me I can no longer use them cause they're restricted. I just play with friends.

I'm not sure whether UBI designers have reallized the tricky question.
In the story background,the Order of Assassin have taken place very much earlier than the English or Arab word of "assassin","hashshashshin" or some other form,like Chinese word:刺客.That means if some day,the franchise covers an era before the Middle Age,the name of the order should be changed,like the setting in Aquilus and the age of Caesar Rome.
I see some feudal dynasties of Japan,such as Kamakura Bakufu were not in an early period the Middle Age,however it still sounds strange that ancient Japanese members of the Order and Templar called themselves "Assassins" or "Templars".They should be local members of the local fractions,not the alien or "imported" ones and need not to use the European or Mid-East words and corresponding translations.

How about shoguns? I always thought a good take on a Japanese ac game could be about the Japanese brand of assassin's who are corrupt and the Japanese mentor is actually the shogunate. Rather than the traditional ninja / samurai story that ubisoft are clearly scared to make, they could tell us a time in feudal Japanese history where the assassin's are corrupt, which coincidentally fuels the assassin's to operate a shogunate government. Would be interesting to see other assassin factions from other countries fighting them in an assassin "civil" war.

I think it works this way: The Animus has an universal translator anyway, he just translates the local / period specific word the orders use for themselves into Assassins / Templars. The Mayan Assassins surely didn’t call themselves Assassins, they just noticed that their beliefs were similar—Ah Tabai mentioned something like this, I think—once the European Assassins arrived.

Or another theory: The etymology of the word Assassin / Templar is simply different in the AC universe and they were called that since the time of TWCB.

That'll be the curse of Japanese-themed AC game (if it ever happens), people will nitpick and tear it to pieces. Not directed at you exactly, but just accept it as fictional work developed by multicultural blah blah, so inconsistencies will be there.

Story inconsistencies seem unavoidable with the "multicultural groups or some other thing" working for it,while the tricky mechanics should better be kept for the future possibilities.
I've seen that the story is set as "Assassins and Templars both imported that time",and this sounds like a "wise" avoidance made for my question,hehe.
Just found that my thread moved here,okay.
