Vin Hill is an artist just starting out in the video game business. He is also a man with a very clear idea of what a Japanese Assassin's Creed could look like.

Sure, we've got a Chinese game coming (albeit a spinoff), but Vin's ideas here are for a full game set in Kyoto during the Meiji restoration in the 19th century, the tumultuous era in Japan's history where the country ended centuries of self-imposed exile and embraced - quickly, and not without opposition - the modern world.


You can see his sketches and ideas below, with some other personal pieces below that. Vin's personal site is here.
