Rise of the Ronin Shows Some Bakumatsu Gameplay

Sony and Team Ninja released a new gameplay overview trailer for action RPG Rise of the Ronin. The four-minute video highlights the game’s setting of late 19th-century Japan as it opens up to influence from foreign nations. It also shows the variety of ways players can traverse locations, as well as its combat system that focuses on using different styles, parries, and blocks.

Rise of the Ronin sees players controlling a wandering Ronin during the chaotic Bakumatsu era. The game features open world exploration with action combat that mixes the weapons of the time, such as katanas being used alongside newly established firearms. Rise of the Ronin will release exclusively for PlayStation 5 on March 22, 2024.
