Assassin’s Creed Shadows has a grappling hook to let its shinobi character reach places its samurai can’t

Assassin’s Creed Shadows has the one tool every video game needs: a grappling hook. But only one of its two protagonists can make use of the item to reach new areas.

The game’s two protagonists each have some “clear advantages” – samurai Yasuke is great at fighting, while shinobi Naoe is better at stealth and parkour. “We developed quite a bit of new tools for Naoe and stealth, and one of them is the grappling hook,” creative director Jonathan Dumont explains in a breakdown of the new cinematic trailer. “And the grappling hook allows you to climb over walls that you cannot climb with Yasuke, or without the hook, which opens different paths for Naoe.”
