Spotted by a Reddit user, the animation sees the protagonist jump on an enemy's back, stab them, and perform a forward roll. The animation, which did not make it to the final version of Assassin's Creed 3, is now featured in Assassin's Creed Shadows. This new game, set in Japan, introduces two protagonists: Naoe, a stealthy shinobi, and Yasuke, an action-oriented character based on a historical figure. Assassin's Creed Shadows is set to release on November 12, 2024, for special editions and November 15, 2024, for the Standard Edition.
