Gamers got more excited when they discovered Ubisoft is bringing an essential feature from “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” to “Assassin’s Creed Shadows.” Here’s the scoop.

‘Assassin’s Creed Shadows’ official world premiere trailer out now!

The game developer first announced “Assassin’s Creed Shadows” in 2022, then under the working title “Assassin’s Creed Red.” Rumors also swirled around about the overall narrative and setting. A few days ago, Ubisoft finally released the official cinematic trailer for the game. 

Ubisoft is introducing a Black protagonist in “Assassin’s Creed Shadows,” which is set in Japan this time. Fans are not happy about the presence of a Black character in a country like Japan, but they expressed their approval of the fact that the game is introducing a feature last seen in “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.”

Switch between characters

“Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” gamers are able to enjoy seamlessly switching its dual protagonists, Peter Parker and Miles Morales. 

As they explore New York City and its neighborhoods, fight crime, and earn trophies, they can play as either of the superheroes with their unique superpowers and skills. Ubisoft is learning from Insomniac Games, the developer behind “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.”

Just like in “Spider-Man 2,” the upcoming “Assassin’s Creed” game will feature a dual protagonist system. Players can switch between Naoe and Yasuke. 

According to the game’s official website, Naoe is a shinobi assassin journeying across Japan for revenge. Meanwhile, Yasuke is a samurai who wants to confront the demons of this past. 

To fulfill ‘two iconic player fantasies’

One reason Ubisoft made such a landmark decision is to fulfill “two iconic player fantasies.” The game’s setting during the late Sengoku period, known for its political turmoil, warfare, and social reformation, is the perfect backdrop for these dual heroes. 

Aside from being able to switch between these two characters, there will also be vastly distinct gameplay experiences and a perspective into a crucial moment in Japanese history.

“We’re looking at certain past projects, future projects, and we felt that, this time, it was the perfect moment for Japan,” game director Charles Benoit told the BBC

“Assassin’s Creed Shadows” is unveiling this November.
