Popular action game “Assassin’s Creed” series that “Ubisoft” is proud of. At the event held the other day, several new works were announced, and among them, “Assassin’s Creed Codename Red”, which is set in Japan, is attracting attention. However, for some reason, there are voices that the story of the same work is suspicious.

The Japanese version of “Asakuri” that fans have been waiting for

“Assassin’s Creed” is an action game series that depicts the battle between the “Assassin’s Order”, a group of assassins that has continued since ancient times, and the “Knights Templar”, who are trying to rule the world. At the online event “Ubisoft Forward” held on September 11th, a total of four new titles from the series were announced.

Especially popular is “Assassin’s Creed Codename Red” set in feudal Japan. Although the details have not been revealed yet, it seems that it will be a story about “Shinobi”, and the PV depicts a part of its stylish world view.

So far, the series has featured various eras and locations, but has never been set in Japan. However, it seems that there were many people who wanted the Japanese version of “Assassin’s Creed” because of the high affinity between the image of Japan = ninja and the setting of an assassin.

With the title of the dream that finally came true, on the Internet, “Finally a ninja! Expectations are high for ninjas in the Asakuri world view! 》《Japanese-style Assassin’s Creed is definitely a god game》《I believed it would come someday!》 』And the voice of expectation continues.

Too late? Competing Titles One After Another

However, on SNS, etc., there were reactions such as “I’m worried that it will be a degraded version of Ghost of Tsushima,” “I feel like Ghost of Tsushima has been ahead of me,” and “After the release, it will be compared to Ghost of Tsushima.” Certainly, it is undeniable that the release timing was late.

This is because, in the open world game with the theme of Japanese history, “Ghost of Tsushima” released in 2020 was a huge hit, selling over 9 million copies worldwide. “Assassin’s Creed His Codename Red” needs to overcome the hurdles the game has created.

In addition, the release date is scheduled to be at least after 2024, but there are already rumors of a sequel to “Ghost of Tsushima”. There is a good chance that the release date will conflict.

Furthermore, in the PlayStation information program “State of Play” distributed on September 14th, “Rise of the Ronin”, the latest work of “Team NINJA” known for the “Nio” series, will be released in 2024. is clear. A fierce competition is likely to unfold in Japan’s “history game.”

In addition to that, there is also a theory that trouble has occurred at the production site of “Assassin’s Creed Codename Red”. According to the overseas media “TheGamer”, Jonathan Dumont, the creative director of the same work, has been accused of harassment. Ubisoft’s labor union is calling on the development team to boycott their work.

There are many obstacles ahead, but will the production proceed smoothly?
