View Full Version : Feudal Assassin's Creed needs two Main Characters

10-12-2013, 02:53 AM
Hi guys!

So here's my thinking for a feudal Assassin's Creed. It would take place during the Heian Era (the end of the samurai era and introduction of gunpowder has been done to death) and there would be two parallel characters:

1) The Assassin who is a ninja
2) A Templar who is a samurai

The samurai are part of the rule and noble and makes sense they are Templars whereas the ninja being a tool of powerful men who work in the shadows match the assassins. The twist to the game is the assassin character slowly descends into darkness and begins to become the main villain of the game whereas the Templar character, driven by duty and honor, slowly begins to side with the assassin's. Near the end of the game, the enemy becomes a corrupt and rogue assassin's order while the samurai builds a new order with those who were loyal to the creed.

The main hook of the gameplay would be masters and training. Where the ninja trains up and builds a new brotherhood, the samurai character would through tragedy become a ronin, then train in the skills of the ninja and eventually become an assassin, capable of fighting both in the shadows as well as in combat depending on the armour and equipment he had on.

Story wise, it would be a fresh approach to the Creed formula with intersecting characters and betrayals and doing credit to both the ninja and samurai of the time.

What do you guys think? Have any ideas to add on?

Ubisoft have said in the past they aren't interested in making an AC game based in Feudal Japan.

You have some nice ideas though! :)

True. Just a thought exercise.

I'm listening.
What about weapons and tools(smoke bombs flash bombs etc.)? Since they are too closed minded to act on this why not just detail it up as much as possible.

Alex Hutchinson has said in the past that isn't interested in making an AC game based in Feudal Japan/WW2/Egypt.
