Assassin’s Creed Red will copy Ghost of Tsushima well on one point

Assassin's Creed Red will copy Ghost of Tsushima well on one point

A few hours after its announcement, Assassin’s Creed Red was already in turmoil. In question, the name of Jonathan Dumont, accused of having created a toxic environment within Ubisoft Quebec. The publisher did not react to the controversy, but would work internally to avoid one of another kind. The one around cultural appropriation.

Assassin’s Creed Red in search of authenticity

After years of clamoring for it, fans are going to have their Assassin’s Creed in Japan. The contours around the highly anticipated project are still unclear, except that we will embody a ninja. That doesn’t stop players from already comparing it to Ghost of Tsushima. The two games will likely have one thing in common other than their setting : Japanese consultants to ensure that this culture is represented with respect.

According to Axios, citing two sources close to the development of Assassin’s Creed Red, the developers will indeed call on specialized local consultants. They will also work closely with Ubisoft Japan. The aim would then be to avoid cultural tourism “so decried in certain works and protect” interest in authenticity and cultural sensitivity”. The American media, however, did not provide more details as to the extent of this collaboration.

Excellent news, therefore, especially since the process had allowed Suck Punch to create a believable world and story and to deal faithfully with certain subjects in Ghost of Tsushima. As a result, the game received a very positive reception and was even praised for its representation in the Land of the Rising Sun. We wish the same to Ubisoft with Assassin’s Creed Red. We remind you, however, that the game is not expected before at least 2024.
