Team Ninja’s next game has been revealed – Rise of the Ronin.
Announced as a new action RPG, Rise of the Ronin is the latest project from Nioh and Ninja Gaiden developers Team Ninja. The upcoming game was revealed during yesterday’s State of Play presentation along with its first trailer.
Team Ninja Director and President Fumihiko Yasuda described the game as “a combat-oriented open-world action role-playing game set in Japan at a time of great change.” In the late 19th century, players take control of a ronin character at a time when civil war is raging across Japan. A variety of weapons are available to the player, including katanas and new firearms of the time.
“By using all the skills and knowledge we’ve acquired over the years, we really wanted to take things to the next level by attempting to cover the most critical revolution in the history of Japan, including the darkest and ugliest chapters before which many will shy away from thoroughly portraying it.”
“This is hands down the most ambitious and challenging project for Team Ninja Studio to date,” said Yasuda. “Nonetheless, we’ll let our experience developing samurai and ninja action games guide us on this journey.”
The trailer confirmed that Rise of the Ronin will be a PlayStation 5 console exclusive, set for release sometime in 2024.
