Rise of the Ronin has received a new trailer and a release date at The Game Awards.
Team Ninja president and game director Fumihiko Yasuda has said the game is “undoubtedly the most ambitious and challenging project” the Japanese studio has undertaken.
“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,” Yasuda said in a new statement.
“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.”
Explaining the game, he added: “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.”
