We’ve been hard at work since we announced this title in September last year, spurred on by the excitement that our players have voiced since then. As a title, Rise of the Ronin features a historical setting quintessential to Koei Tecmo, while brimming with Team Ninja’s own brand of action and combat. Throughout creating our biggest game to date, we have been working alongside the team at SIE to create an experience that allows players to fully embody a Ronin during the closing days of the Tokugawa Shogunate.
Japan at the end of the 19th century was characterized by the fall of the Tokugawa Shogunate, a period of oppression and stagnation. It was a time when innovators like Ryoma Sakamoto and Shoin Yoshida sought to modernize the country. The game’s Ronin protagonist will find their destiny linked to these characters (some of whom you saw in the trailer) in several different ways. Your choices will shape how your character aligns or clashes with story characters and their factions.
You will explore the vast world of late-Edo period Japan by horse and glider, while battling foes using a wide range of weapons and equipment – melee weapons like swords and spears, as well as ranged weapons like firearms and thrown weapons. Also armed with a grappling rope and stealth tactics, you can expect the variety and freedom shown in our latest trailer.
