Feudal Japan (Roughly 1467 AD)
Future Assassin’s Creed Settings Ubisoft Should Use
If there’s one time period that Assassin’s Creed fans have been pining to see for years, it’s Feudal Japan. The era of history is absolutely rife with potential for the series, both aesthetically and thematically. Imagining a Samurai and Ninja-based Assassin’s Creed game is absolutely tantalizing, and there are plenty of historical characters that could fit right into the franchise’s timeline. In particular, the conquest of Oda Nobunaga seems perfectly fit, with Nobunaga himself being a legendary man that could function as the main antagonist of the game. You could even have a system similar to that of Syndicate, with the main character having to systematically take down Nobunaga’s general, and take part in the rebellion founded by Mitsuhide Akechi.
The Sengoku Period has been explored countless times in video games, but the unique mechanics and narrative of Assassin’s Creed could put an entirely new spin on the beloved setting.
