A new AC game set in Japan (idea)

An AC game that is set in Japan would be very interesting and here's why (sorry if I'm wrong)

Comment guys I'd really appreciate it!

 

1-There are already two opposite sides (Alright not exactly opposite but you get the idea) the shinobi 

(ninja) and the samurai (or rather the high ranked officials or rather feudal lords the daimyo).

2- There are already codes (like the bushido for the samurai cast)

3-There are many events where the Assassin's could come to Japan (Like someone from the Chinese 

Brotherhood before they were well attacked let's say so before 1500)

4- There were hundreds of emperors in japan giving noble titles which us room to include the assassin 

brotherhood

5-Japan has noble clans the 4 biggest being the Minamoto Clan, the Taira Clan, the Fujiwara Clan and at 

last the Tachibana Clan(no relation to the 立花氏 Tachibana clan  ) which sometimes fought against 

eachother

6-First Europeans that arrived in Japan where the Portuguese traders António Mota, Francisco 

Zeimoto and António Peixoto which came to Japan in the year 1543 (there was presumebly a fourth 

trader which is another possibility for the Assassin Brotherhood to come to Japan.

7- There's more but let's stay with this for now

 

So let's say that we are in the year 1476 and that the future emperor Go-Kashiwabara is born. But there 

would be a twist, his mother would have his brother born in secret and would have him abandoned him 

because of how ugly he looked (Greek Mythology reference btw.) but the child would be found by the 

first Assassin in Japan(A cause for speculation) which would hear the conversation of the mother of Go-

Kashiwabara with the current emperor (the conversation was about the second child as they talked they 

ordered everyone who knew about the existence of the child to be executed for treason (or any other

BS reason) so the Assassin took the child in and trained it. Then in the year (let's say) 1498 the Templars 

come to the successor of the throne (after the war that happened in Japan at that time) and poisoned the 

 Emperor Go-Tsuchimikado so that Go-Kashiwabara could take his place (but the real templar goal is to 

claim the sword Kusanagi no Tsurugi which is handed down to each new emperor during the initiation 

ceremony. It turns out that the sword is actually a sword of Eden which grants the wielder the power of 

a thousand men). During that time our main character's mentor is dying and gives him all of his own 

Assassin accessories as well as his mission-to protect the sword of Eden. With his last dying breath his 

mentor tells Katsu (the main protagonists name which means Victory) that he actually is the son of an 

Emperor.After that the main character's mentor (let's call him Katsuki which aka means the shining one) 

dies and Katsu goes n the quest to retrieve the sword of Eden.

Now there would be cool things like the Torii gates would be fast travel points etc., you'd have to travel 

to the tomb of the first (almost legendary) Emperor of Japan- Jimmu.

Then at the end he could forge the replica in the Ancient katana forge(that doesn't exist in real life but it 

sounds cool) in the Chugoku Mountains (or other mountains and he'd replace the real sword with his 

replica so at the end we'd see him fighting the Emperor Go-Kashiwabara who IS HIS BROTHER to save 

humanity (or feudal Japan) from destruction!! The lesser bosses would be the most loyal daimyo (feudal 

lords) of the Emperor. Later (after the brothers fight he loses the fight and barely escapes. Later he 

hides the sword of Eden in an ancient tomb beneath the legendary Hōryū-ji temple. At the end of the 

game we see the Assassin Brotherhood (or the Templar Order) as they enter the tomb and see the 

skeleton of Katsu (the main protagonist) with his ancient Assassin Gear (the hidden blade etc.) and the 

sword Kusanagi no Tsurugi in his clenched hands. Later they cannot take the sword of Eden because 

Katsu (as a member of the Imperial Family and a descendant of Gods (the imperial family comes from 

the shinto gods)) sacrificed his life and his energy (which he'd get from the DNA of Ancients that runs 

through him) (by ancients I mean the beings that were considered gods and those who created the 

pieces of Eden) to protect the sword of Eden so only an Assassin that is a descendant of the Japanese 

Imperial Clan can take the sword (and BOOM here we can continue the series (Assassin's Creed 5) with a 

new protagonist and make a second part (or a Ios or android spin-off),not only that this could be the 

ULTIMATE the piece of Eden that everybody wants (and not a sword) so we can see (maybe in Assassins 

Creed 5 or 6) where the Templars AND the Assassins have the descendants of the Japanese Imperial Line 

and they fight for the ultimate Piece of Eden.

 

Let me know if you liked it and if you didn't comment what we could improve! It's  my first real



theory:)

    you could just play Ghost of Tsushima, its as close of a japanese assassins creed you could get.

    I think that a Japanese Mythology game design would be a great idea. The Ninja's like Setethsia said and the Japanese armored guards, with a twist where you Brother/father was the ruler of that time, but he ordered the guards to get rid of you because you would be able to take right in being the new Ruler.

    I would like a lot this idea the Assasins would go to Japan too. And it would be absolutely great if Ninja's but also the Ainu people would be in it too!
