What is Rise of the Ronin?

FORGE YOUR FATE IN THIS EPIC NEW SAMURAI ACTION ADVENTURE

Embark on an epic journey across war-torn 19th-century Japan in this combat-focused open-world action RPG from Team NINJA, the veteran studio behind Nioh and NINJA GAIDEN.

Japan, 1863. After three centuries of the Tokugawa Shogunate’s reign, the Black Ships of the West descend upon the nation’s borders and the country falls into a state of turmoil. Amidst the chaos of war, disease and political unrest, a nameless warrior forges their own path, holding the very fate of Japan in their hands.  

RISE OF THE RONIN KEY FEATURES

Shape a dynamic story

As a masterless samurai – a Ronin – your destiny is your own. See the story unfold in different ways depending on the choices you make and the characters you ally with along the way. Face critical mission decisions, like whether to assassinate or protect key figures, and shape the course of history through a rich multi-choice system.

Explore an authentic world

The “Bakumatsu” period heralds the end of the Shogunate as a new era begins and East and West collide. Experience this cultural revolution across an open world where you’ll meet the key figures who’ll shape the course of history, and the ordinary citizens seeking a guiding light in the darkness.

Engage in deep accessible combat

From the veteran developers of Nioh and NINJA GAIDEN, Rise of the Ronin offers deeply engaging yet accessible combat with layers of complexity suitable for any playstyle. Face your foes with a selection of close-quarters weaponry or engage from afar with authentic period firearms.

EXPLORE THE HISTORY

Set in Japan’s Bakumatsu Period, 300 years into the tyrannical rule of the Tokugawa shogunate, you'll take on the role of a nameless ronin carving their path through the war and political upheaval that defined the period.

CREATE YOUR CHARACTER

Define your ronin’s appearance and attributes with Team NINJA’s most sophisticated character creation tool yet.

1. Character customization

Before your journey begins, you’ll be able to customize your character. From their facial features, hair, and makeup to their body shape and voice, your warrior – your Veiled Edge – is yours to create. Note that as you progress through the story, you’ll acquire new clothing and gear to customize their appearance further.

2. Character sharpening

Once you’re happy with their look, choose a Blade Sharpening Origin to determine your ronin’s base stats and proficiencies. Will they be a ruthless Killer, skilled in combat with the power to intimidate others? A silver-tongued Seducer with a knack for deception? Or maybe they’ll be a humble Beginner – unrefined but brimming with potential.
