This is as awesome as a Wild West Assassin taking down a corrupt sheriff Templar. This is totally how the Templar in Japan would look like. I am so upset that the next Assassin's Creed is not in Feudal Japan or the Wild West, hell even an Egyptian setting has potential. The only interesting thing that I can think of in the next Assassin's Creed game is climbing up Notre Dame.
I must say that after visiting Paris the background might be a really impressive one, Notre Dame is going to be great, but there are many other places that will be really good, it is a big city, and really beautiful. I'd love a japanesse assassin's creed that's why I made this drawing some years ago, but apart from the big pagodas the background wouldn't be that impressive in the builging part. Of course I know that japanesse feudal castle and towers or temples are awesome, I love them, in this drawing you can see what is supposed to be Himeji castle, but in proportion Paris has more impressive buildings in less space.
Having said this, I also prefer a game in feudal japan than in paris, because even if buildings wouldn't be that good, the gameplay could be completely refreshed to make it entertaining in any place, castle mountains or forest, they started to do this in AC3 but for me they didn't achieve the level of movement freedom the natural landscapes require.
This looks really cool, the pose is excellent, especially of the Assassin. When I heard about the idea of some people wanting an Assassin's Creed set in ancient Japan, I didn't buy it, but this pic has me sold, we need something like this!
Oh my GOSH! YES! SO MUCH JUSTICE!!! sorry, I am like in love with the Sengoku Period of Japan and I totally believe AC NEEDS to have a game there- because, dude, it just works so well historically! I salute you. Your brain is awesome.
Excellen Art. But as I look at this it makes me wonder: where Desmond's ancestor just messing around in every country cause he's got ancestors in Italy, Middle East, I think one in Egypt. All over the world!
I think that there is no need tomake it desmond's ancestor, tha assassin's are a huge group, I think this should be another character in the Animus. I hope there are no more games with desmond, because why the hell all the important events in history of humanity has to be related to desmond?
