Team Ninja's Rise of the Ronin is the best PlayStation State of Play surprise

Team Ninja is back with a PlayStation 5 exclusive called Rise of the Ronin.

One of the best surprises during yesterday’s PlayStation State of Play was without a doubt an upcoming action role-playing game from Team Ninja that has serious Ghost of Tsushima vibes. Amazingly, the game remained a secret despite the fact that it has been in development for seven years.

Here’s how Team Ninja is describing their latest project:

Rise of the Ronin is a combat focused open-world action RPG that takes place in Japan at a time of great change. It is the very end of a 300-year long Edo Period, commonly known as “Bakumatsu”. Set in the late 19th century, Japan is facing the darkest of times as it struggles with its oppressive rulers and deadly diseases while western influence permeates as civil war continues to rage between the Tokugawa Shogunate and the Anti-Shogunate factions.

Here in this time of mayhem, you embody a Ronin character, a warrior bound to no master and free to make choices of its own. Rise of the Ronin is a new Team Ninja experience that will immerse you in an historically inspired world while bringing together its renowned combat action with Katanas and the likes, with new firearm weaponry that depicts the unique personality of its time period.

It’s better that you see it for yourself though. Check out the State of Play trailer below!
