Is It Possible to Switch Between Naoe and Yasuke in Assassin’s Creed Shadows?

Ubisoft’s depiction of 16th-century Japan in its upcoming title ‘Assassin’s Creed Shadows’ has captivated many fans. After ‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate,’ Shadows has been confirmed to have two protagonists, Naoe and Yasuke. This has left fans speculating if you will have the ability to switch between the two playable characters of the game.

In a recent interview with IGN, Ubisoft has confirmed that you will have the ability to freely switch between the two protagonists, ‘Naoe’ an adept Shinobi, and ‘Yasuke’ a powerful African Samurai.

Creative Director Jonathan Dumont went on to explain that they wanted “two different play styles on two different characters with two different storylines.” As revealed on Ubisoft’s official website, you will not be forced to approach any quests with any one character. You will be allowed to choose the character that best suits your skills and play style.

Confused between ‘Naoe’ and ‘Yasuke’

As explained by Associate Narrative Director Brooke Davies, ‘Naoe’ is “the imagined daughter of a real historical figure Fujibayashi Nagato” who trained her to be a Shinobi. You can expect ‘Naoe’s’ play style to be stealthy and fast-paced in nature.

‘Yasuke’ is the first real figure accessible as a playable character in the ‘Assassin’s Creed’ franchise. Described as the ‘Legendary Black Samurai,’ Davies added ‘Yasuke’ was “likely born in Mozambique, likely stolen as a child by the Portuguese (and) brought to Japan.” His play style emphasizes strength and direct combat.

With the option to switch between ‘Naoe’ and ‘Yasuke’, each with their unique skills and storylines, Assassin’s Creed Shadows is set to be an absolute masterpiece. ‘Trying both characters is the way to go’ is our recommendation.
