There are two protagonists in Assassin’s Creed Shadows, with each character in the game based on a different type of warrior from Japan. Yasuke is Nobunaga Oda’s samurai, while Naoe is a shinobi ninja who is an Assassin. Both are living in the same period of time in Feudal Japan, and each takes a different approach to missions. So while Naoe would rely on stealth, Yasuke goes in using force. 

Here is the premiere trailer for the new Assassin’s Creed game, which features looks at both Naoe and Yasuke in Japan.
