Ubisoft blocked a historian from Japan for facts about the dark-skinned “samurai” Yasuke from Assassin’s Creed Shadows

Social media user X, Kenji Yamamoto, shared that Ubisoft blocked his account after spreading information about the Japanese “samurai” Yasuke, one of the main characters in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Shadows.

Yamamoto claims to be a Master of Asian Studies (MASIA) specializing in Japanese history during the Sengoku and Edo periods. He received his education at the University of Tokyo.

After the block, he explained the reason on X:

“Yasuke was not a samurai. Think about it.

Question: When Nobunaga was forced to commit seppuku [also known as “harakiri” – ritual suicide by disembowelment], along with all his samurai at Honno-ji, why was Yasuke allowed to leave?

Answer: Because he was not a samurai and was not required to perform seppuku, which was an honor for other true samurai.”

The historian added:

“So, the official Assassin’s Creed page on X blocked me for stating the truth. All I said was that Yasuke was not a samurai. Nowhere does it definitively state that he was, and they know this, so they blocked me for continuing to prove it.”

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will be released on November 12, 2024, on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
