Rise of the Ronin is a new action roleplaying game unveiled by the design and development team Team Ninja during yesterday’s Sony PlayStation State of Play event. In Rise of the Ronin, players take on the role of a warrior free from all masters and shackles, allowing you to explore an evolving world as you fight to create a new era for Japan as your destiny intertwines with story characters.
Rise of the Ronin features “exciting combat action,” says Fumihiko Yasuda, director and president of Team Ninja. A combatfocused openworld RPG set in Japan at a time of great change. This is the very end of the 300year Edo period, commonly known as “Bakumatsu”.
“We at Team Ninja are incredibly excited to present our latest action RPG that will take you on an epic and unhindered journey as a Ronin at the dawn of a new era in Japan. It was seven years ago when we first started this project. And since then, development has progressed slowly and freely, like the spirit of Ronin. It is with great pleasure that we finally unveil this game, and we are filled with gratitude for being able to make this announcement with PlayStation, which has supported us and this project over the years.”
Set in the late 19th century, Japan is going through its darkest times as it battles its oppressive rulers and deadly diseases, while Western influence infiltrates as the civil war between the Tokugawa shogunate and antishogunate factions continues to rage.
Here, in this time of chaos, you embody the character of Ronin, a warrior who is not tied to his master and is free to make his own choice. Rise of the Ronin is a new Team Ninja experience that will immerse you in a historically inspired world, combining famous katana fighting and the like with new firearms that reflect the unique personality of their time period.”
