Rise of The Ronin is the new action RPG from Team Ninja – Effinate Games


In the latest PlayStation State of Play, Nioh and Ninja Gaiden developer Team Ninja announced their action RPG set in Japan titled Rise of The Ronin. The game takes place during a remarkable period in Japanese history. A trailer, as well as stills from the game, accompanied its State of Play reveal.

Rise of The Ronin details and release date

Rise of the Ronin takes place during a significant period of Japanese history. These are the closing years of the 300-year Edo period, often known as “Bakumatsu.” In the late 19th century, Japan struggles with its oppressive rulers and terrible diseases, while Western influence seeps and civil war between the Tokugawa Shogunate and anti-Shogunate groups continues to simmer. During this time, players will assume the role of a Ronin character who has the ability to make his own free choices. Katan-based combat is also a key feature of this action RPG. The game had been in development for seven years before it was published.

Regarding this game, Fumihiko Yasuda, Director and President of Team Ninja, says,

“With Rise of the Ronin, we set out to take the next big step. Utilizing all the skills and knowledge we have gained over the years, we really wanted to take things to the next level by trying to thoroughly portray the most critical revolution in Japan’s history, including the darkest and ugliest chapters that many will shy away from from . This is undoubtedly the most ambitious and challenging project for Team Ninja Studio to date. Still, we will let our experience creating samurai and ninja action games guide us through this journey.”

Rise of the Ronin doesn’t have a specific release date, but it’s coming to Playstation 5 and PC in 2024. More details can be found here.
