Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China is getting a manga adaptation with "Blade of Shao Jun"

By Heidi Nicholas,
Fans of Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China will soon be able to see more of its main character when the manga adaptation, Assassin's Creed: Blade of Shao Jun, arrives on February 16th.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China

Ubisoft partnered with Viz Media for the adaptation based on Shao Jun's story in Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China. Viz Media's description reads: "1526 AD—China is ruled by the Great Ming Empire. Though the empire flourishes, the winds of the new emperor’s political purge are sweeping over the land, and turmoil is brewing. With the decimation of her comrades, Shao Jun has become China’s last Assassin. After escaping to Europe, she has now returned alone to her homeland. Her purpose: vengeance!"

You'll also see details about Shao Jun's own modern-day descendent Lisa Huang as she tests the Animus machine and relives Shao Jun's memories. Through Huang, however, Shao Jun's memories are being used by Dr. Kagami to determine where the "mysterious box treasure" can be found, and Ubisoft says "the fate of the mysterious box is now in the hands of both the past and present."

The first volume of Assassin's Creed: Blade of Shao Jun arrives on February 16th.

I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
