From the Shadows of History: Yasuke and Naoe Fujibayashi
- Yasuke’s Epic Rises Anew: Central to Codename Red is Yasuke, the legendary African samurai, whose reality is woven anew to fit the game’s expansive narrative.
- A Samurai’s Path from Chains to Honor: The game introduces a reimagined backstory for Yasuke, starting from the depths of despair aboard a doomed slave ship to his ascension as a samurai under the aegis of Lord Nobunaga.
- Naoe Fujibayashi – The Blade Among Shadows: Joining Yasuke is the formidable Naoe Fujibayashi, daughter of the storied Fujibayashi Nagato and one of the three greatest ninja leaders from Iga. Her tale, like Yasuke’s, is one of tragedy and redemption.
- Fateful Encounters to Alliances: Initially adversaries, Yasuke and Naoe’s paths converge, united by a shared vision for Japan’s future, forging a bond between them.
The game will include well-known historical figures such as Oda Nobunaga, Akechi Mitsuhide, and Hattori Hanzo, allowing players to immerse themselves in Japan’s rich history.
Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red is not merely a standalone game, but an essential component of the Assassin’s Creed: Infinity platform. This project is a significant milestone for the franchise, as it expands the Assassin’s Creed universe into an extensive interconnected world. Ubisoft Quebec is meticulously crafting this universe with a focus on historical accuracy and RPG mechanics to provide an immersive and authentic experience.
