Assassin’s Creed V: Rising Run. Set during the Meiji restoration in 1868, the samurai were dispersed and a national implemented with a large influence from Western traders such as the united states. With this, the old styled Japan was moved very rapidly into the future with the introduction of an armed forces with firearms. To complete the restoration the new emperor moved the capital from Kyoto to Edo (Now named Tokyo) where the traditional Japan was being lost very quickly. This is the stage in which AC5: RS is set. The player would travel from Kyoto to Osaka then finally to Tokyo where the modernization of japan increases from one city to the next. The main character is a Samurai whom is tied to the Assassin’s Clan, a clan which guards a secret brought from across the sea many years before. The Templars from America and Europe have come to find the secret, influencing the clan heads to disperse and change while and the Assassin guardians struggle to find out who is responsible and take out the newly formed Templars whom are drastically trying to find the secret which is hidden in the land of the rising sun. The restoration is but a backdrop to this truth…
Personal project I set for myself as a challenge and in hopes to get noted by a studio. In many ways it was a success as it not only gave me a lot of exposure but it also gave me the opportunity to be interviewed and officially offered a full time position at UBISOFT Osaka, while its not the AAA studio that makes AC, it is indeed a start!
