Seriously! I challenge Ubisoft to give one good reason not to have a game in Feudal Japan
It has everything an AC game needs, stealthy characters (ninjas) armored characters (samurai) and political strife
Maybe they're just really obsessed with having guys with European foreign accents for the fangirls

A samurai assassin like there already deadly enough

sorry to say, but doesn't it look too bulky for an assassin's style?

yeah it's too heavy weight.. Maybe as Unlockable content for a game xD

but I know what you mean.. they all had Lightweight armour to move around quickly.

And more Japanese Assassin's come out of hiding. Nice ones at that!

Just a few thoughts on the design here...I love it, but I have a few small problems with it.

I see arrows, and no bow.  So unless he's planning on throwing them like giant lawn darts, they're not serving much purpose.

No problems with the hood, it's classic AC and shouldn't be changed.  I think that I'd like to see a mask underneath it, though, or at least part of a face, not just a big black hole.  He's an assassin, not a ghost, and adding one of the demonic half-masks that samurai wore to increase their threat would fit in nicely with the armor he's wearing.

Third and last: his hidden blades.  They might fit better with the rest of the character's appearance if they were in the Japanese style, with single-edged blades and tanto or leaf-points rather than the double-edged dagger-style blades of the more western assassins.  The hidden blade's design has had a few changes over the series, so I'm fairly certain that rendering these more as tanto's would have have been fairly lore-friendly.

Regardless, it's still an awesome-looking picture.  He looks like a badass, as well he should, and even with the problems I have with it, I still love it.

Lol it doesnt even look like he could move!!!

Japanese armor was created to allow a surprising amount of freedom of movement. For example, the armor attached at the waist was split into panels to allow for horseback riding and wider stances

amazing effort. gaunt not sure of samurais had those types of gauntlets... those look somewhat European and made from metal.. also, don't think altair the flowing robes would be pointed on the ends, in japan, they'd most likely be regular shaped robes... also, samurais definitely wore headgear but a straight up hood wasn't one of them..

But other than that, pretty awesome.

Very good art!

I think it kind of looks like the main character from assassins creed.
LuciousLemons Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011
It's a cool concept. Needs more ninja and less samurai.
