Assassin’s Creed Shadows: Meet the Two New Heroes

Unique Playstyles

During a closed presentation at Summer Games Fest, Ubisoft unveiled the two main characters in Assassin’s Creed Shadows, showcasing their vastly different playstyles. Yasuke and Naoe bring fresh dynamics to the game, offering players unique ways to complete missions.

Yasuke: The Powerful Samurai

Yasuke, a powerful samurai based on an actual historical figure, brings brute force to the game. Unlike traditional assassins, Yasuke relies on his strength to take down groups of guards with his massive spiked club. With limited climbing abilities, Yasuke's gameplay focuses on precision and powerful attacks.

Naoe: The Stealthy Ninja

Naoe, on the other hand, embodies the essence of a ninja warrior with lightning-fast parkour skills. She navigates rooftops with agility, using tactics like stabbing enemies through walls and disorienting them by shutting off lights. Naoe's unique weapon—a chain with a metal ball and scythe—allows her to take down multiple enemies at once with finesse.

A Diverse Gameplay Experience

Players can switch between Yasuke and Naoe at any point in the story, offering a diverse gameplay experience. While Yasuke excels in brute force, Naoe shines in stealth, providing players with two distinct ways to approach missions. Whether you prefer overpowering enemies or outmaneuvering them, Assassin’s Creed Shadows offers something for every player.
