Announced last week, the game Rise of the Ronin promises to be increasingly ambitious. Studio Team Ninja - responsible for NiOh - is collaborating with Sony on the project, among other reasons due to its size. Earlier it was confirmed that the studio had behind-the-scenes support from Sony, and now further details on the subject have been revealed.

Information on the closer cooperation was provided by Jason Stewart - Sony's senior producer - on Twitter. He talks about the involvement of Sony's Japanese team in the development of the game. The statement is confirmed by last week's publication by Fumihiko Yasuda - director of Team Ninja - in which he assures that the game is "undoubtedly the studio's most ambitious and challenging project."

Interestingly, Japan Studio was restructured in late 2020/early 2021, with some staff transferred to Team Asobi (Astro's Playroom), which subsequently became part of PlayStation Studios. Stewart's statement suggests that Sony has assigned the Japanese branch of the team to work on XDev, which has been assisting third-party studios with game development for more than 20 years (the team has supported the developers of, among others. LittleBigPlanet, Heavy Rain or Beyond: Two Souls).

Rise of the Ronin is expected to be an action RPG with a TPP view and offer an extensive arcade combat system. The game will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive and will come out in 2024.. It will also likely receive a PC version in the future.
