With Assassin's Creed Valhalla taking us into the England Dark Ages as a formidable Viking warrior, our minds have been spinning about what sort of new Assassin's Creed locations we would like to see next. As a massive Asssassin's Creed fan, I may or may not have thought about this a little too much so figured - why not share! Part one our top 5 Assassin's Creed locations saw us dreaming of a cyberpunk-fueled future for the franchise and this part has us going way back into the depths of history.
5 Assassin's Creed Locations We'd Like to See Next, Medieval Japan
Ubisoft has been teasing new locations hidden within the game's mini-adventures for years now but two scenarios found in the modern-day portion of AC have stuck out the most to fans: Vikings and Feudal Japan. Now that we know that Vikings is indeed the next narrative direction, that leaves just one more wish unfulfilled by primed for future excitement.
A samurai-driven Assassin's Creed story would be incredible. We got a small taste of something similar with the spin-off Assassin's Creed Chronicles China, but it just wasn't the same. We're talking Japan, we're talking honorable samurai, we're talking a fully-fleshed out, open-world adventure, not the side-scrolling rendition seen in Chronicles.
Imagine, for a moment, an Assassin's Creed game done in Hiroshi Inagaki style from The Samurai Trilogy in 1954? Or maybe Kihachi Okamoto's Samurai Assassin from 1965? Take that premise, modernize it just a tad to fit into more to today's expectations, and voila! We could have a perfect Assassin's Creed game once more with a narrative that fans have been begging for in a style completely unique than all of it's predecessors.
A big reason I loved Assassin's Creed Origins is because it took us deep into Ancient Egypt, a time that I was obsessed with as a child. Walking the dunes of Egypt and playing pivotal roles in history through this game was incredible and a dream come true. I'd love to see that same historic formula applied to the age of samurai.
