Team Ninja being Team Ninja, expect rip-roaring action from Rise of the Ronin, and the pre-order trailer in question pretty much cements this notion for the time to come. The video shows off some open-world traversal mechanics in-game, including a grappling hook that helps drastically with movement, along with a glider that makes covering longer distances easier. 

And it’s not just swordplay that boils into the equation here—thanks to the setting of the title that takes place around the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate’s iron fist rule. That is when numerous options for every fighting warrior opened up, thus the inclusion of guns in Rise of the Ronin, especially for our protagonist. From the looks of it, players will mix swords and guns together while carving their own path in feudal Japan.

First off, the studio head lets out an important message for the audience that highlights the company’s vision and future aspirations. 

As a title, Rise of the Ronin features a historical setting quintessential to Koei Tecmo, while brimming with Team Ninja’s own brand of action and combat. Throughout creating our biggest game to date, we have been working alongside the team at SIE to create an experience that allows players to fully embody a Ronin during the closing days of the Tokugawa Shogunate.”
