New Assassin’s Creed Shadows key art leaks ahead of reveal online

May 14, 2024 by No Comments


Several new images of Assassin’s Creed Shadows keyart have leaked online ahead of the game’s official reveal.

Images were originally posted by dataminer user /u/fraxR6, who get information and images from the Ubisoft Store backend. Although the original images have since been deleted, Insider Gaming’s Mike Straw uploaded the images to his Twitter account.

The images confirm a previous report by Insider Gaming that the game will feature two protagonists, a male samurai named Yasuke and a female shinobi named Nao. Warning, some minor story spoilers ahead.

Yasuke’s story begins with tragedy, and unlike his real-life story, his story is rewritten. In Assassin’s Creed Shadows, Yasuke is traveling on a slave ship when it is attacked and everyone is killed, including his lover, but he survives. Yasuke was then rescued and brought to Japan, where he learned the way of the samurai in the service of Nobunaga.

At the start of the game, it is understood that Nao and Yasuke are bitter enemies, but later become allies over their desire for Japanese unification.

Insider Gaming understands that Assassin’s Creed Red has other historical characters set to appear; Fujibayashi Nagato (Nao’s father), Oda Nobunaga, Akechi Mitsuhide, Hattori Hanzo (recurring character), Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Kodai-in (Hideyoshi’s wife), Oichi, Ashikaga Yoshiaki, Akechi Kagemitsu and more.
