The game will take place in the late Sengoku period to include both characters. The gameplay experience and the overlapping perspectives on a transformative moment in Japanese history will be different for both Yasuke and Naoe. This approach of different perspectives will keep things fresh for a player, unlike the old one-character story progression style in older games.

According to the story, Yasuke, a samurai of African origin, arrived in Japan and was enslaved by the Portuguese. Playing his perspective will shed light on the Portuguese colonizing threat in Japan. Yasuke is full of size, strength, and wits when it comes to battles. On the other hand, Naoe is all about stealth, parkour, and gadgets. While the story begins with her being 17 years old, it progresses from there.
