Can you imagine an Assassin’s Creed set in the second Sino-Japanese War? A conceptual artist turns it into a wonderful reality that fans fall in love with.
Assassin’s Creed is one of the great sagas of video games, which tends to focus on different countries and historical moments. However, many fans miss a game set in China.
The truth is that it exists, and it is called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, but it is not a main installment. We talk about an AAA open world game in the style of Odyssey, Origins or Valhalla.
A concept artist has made this wish come true, if only in a series of stunning designs (via art station). And beware, because it is neither more nor less than a Ubisoft Shanghai worker.
In this way, Li Chunlei has imagined what an Assassin’s Creed game would be like set in China… during the year 1937. That is, in what is known as the Second Sino-Japanese War.
China is a country with a lot of potential to set the Ubisoft saga. An Assassin’s Creed might fit the bill in the Ming Dynasty erabut Li Chunlei has decided to place it in the conflict between Japan and China.
To start we can see impressive designs of the protagonist. He looks like a classic Assassin (in the style of Ezio), albeit with a green tunic with motifs in red, brown and black.

As for the hidden blade bracelet, Li Chunlei has created a new skin for this Assassin weapon. It has full mobility and the ability to “knock down” the blade at will.
We can also see an attack by our Assassin on the Japanese, in what is a spectacular scene that almost seems real. The same can be said of the villain. You can see all the designs in a gallery, courtesy of Li Chunlei (via art station).
Of course, none of these designs belong to a game in development. They are simply samples of the talent of Ubisoft Shanghaiand who knows if in the future we could see it become a reality.
This Assassin’s Creed It would be set during the so-called Battle of Shanghai, held in 1937 and considered one of the bloodiest of the Second Sino-Japanese War (in the framework prior to World War II). What do you think of the designs?
