Ubisoft has premiered the official cinematic trailer for “Assassin’s Creed: Shadows,” the next mainline entry in its long-running series and one set in a location fans have long been clamoring for – feudal Japan.

In the game, you will live the intertwined stories of Naoe, an adept shinobi Assassin from Iga Province, and Yasuke, the powerful African samurai of historical legend.

Against the backdrop of the turbulent late Sengoku period, this remarkable duo will discover their common destiny as they usher in a new era for Japan.

The first gameplay from the title will be revealed next month as part of Summer GamesFest. The actual title will be released in stores on November 15th.

No word if this will be more akin to the larger open-world RPGs like “Odyssey” or “Valhalla,” or slightly older school smaller scale like last year’s “Assassin’s Creed Mirage”. The title is the first in part of the publisher’s “Assassin’s Creed: Infinity” saga.

The timing of the release comes as the Japan-set “Ghost of Tsushima,” a title dubbed the “Assassin’s Creed in Japan” many have long wanted, comes to PC tomorrow.
