Rise of the Ronin is a new samurai action-adventure game set in the tumultuous period of 1863 Japan, crafted by Team Ninja, the creators of Nioh and Ninja Gaiden. This open-world action RPG plunges players into a nation gripped by war, disease, and political upheaval. The game is set in 1863, during the Tokugawa Shogunate’s decline and the arrival of Western influences, marking a period of intense turmoil and cultural revolution known as the “Bakumatsu period.”

Players take on the role of a masterless samurai, a Ronin, with the freedom to shape their destiny. The game’s dynamic storytelling allows for different narrative outcomes based on the player’s choices and alliances. Critical decisions, like assassinating or protecting key figures, influence the course of history within a rich multi-choice system.

The world of Rise of the Ronin authentically captures the essence of the Bakumatsu period, offering an expansive open world where players encounter historical figures and ordinary citizens alike, each seeking guidance in uncertain times.

Combat in Rise of the Ronin is both deep and accessible, reflecting Team Ninja’s expertise. It offers a range of close-quarters weapons and authentic period firearms, catering to various playstyles and ensuring a complex yet approachable combat experience.

Rise of the Ronin will launch for PlayStation 5 on March 22, 2024.
