Game news Rise of the Ronin PS5 takes inspiration from the biggest action games and makes a splash in Sony's State of Play
PlayStation made the announcement on Tuesday: PlayStation 5 exclusive Rise of the Ronin was shown off for more than three minutes in a trailer for the game. It is enough to know more about the game developed by Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo before release.
Rise of the Ronin: A major gameplay sequence for the PS5 exclusive
Rise of the Ronin, along with Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth, will probably be the most anticipated exclusive games on PlayStation 5 at the beginning of 2024. The first, unlike the second, took advantage of PlayStation's state of play to show off its open world and gameplay. The trailer, which is close to four minutes long, shows off gameplay sequences recorded live on the PS5. First of all, it mentions that the game takes place in the second part of the eighteenth century, shortly before the Meiji era. The protagonist wanders around Yokohama, one of the country's first ports to be opened to the world, using the many tools at his disposal: A grappling hook to reach rooftops, a type of glider (called an Avicula in English) to cruise through the air, or even a more classic steed. Less flashy but still just as effective.
Of course, Rise of the Ronin isn't just an exploration game. In keeping with previous Team Ninja games (Nioh in particular, Wu Kong: Fallen Dynasty and more recently), combat seems to be everywhere in their new production. Fumihiko Yasuda, Team Ninja's director, explains that the player will be able to take on different combat stances depending on the opponents they face. His arsenal will also evolve and will not be limited to traditional samurai long swords.
In combat, a variety of weapons can be used, including imported pistols, as well as Japanese swords and long spears.
A variety of gameplay styles that will depend on the relationship between the hero and Igashichi. He is an inventor who can provide all kinds of gadgets, such as a flamethrower.
Ronin's relationships will influence the story
The features described above, as well as the parrying prevalent in Rise of the Ronin, invite many comparisons to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. However, it seems that the upcoming Team Ninja game will differentiate itself from FromSoftware's game by focusing on the main character and his relationships:
The bond you have with the characters living in the Bakumatsu era will greatly affect how the story develops and ends.
We can then recall that in the game Rise of the Ronin, the player takes on the role of a ronin: a samurai who no longer has a master. The final part of the trailer shows several environments the player will travel through in the game, such as snowy battlefields, ports under fireworks, or even castles in the rural countryside. Reading the comments below the video, it seems like many players are already excited to get their hands on the game. Many consider Rise of the Ronin to be a combination of several excellent games… and they are tempted!
The ghost of the killer Cicero.
A little bit of Sekiro, a little bit of Nioh, a little bit of Nioh Assassin's Creed. They are all excellent!
The ghost of Cicero Cooper. I'm interested 😮
To test it out, you'll still have to wait a little longer: Rise of the Ronin is expected to be released exclusively on PlayStation 5 on March 22.
