Ubisoft unveils cryptic code for Assassin’s Creed Shadows, ARG promotion begins

Last night, Ubisoft released a teaser image that hints at the cityscape of Osaka and the presence of ninjas, announcing the long-awaited unveiling of the latest work in the popular series “Assassin's Creed Shadows” (formerly known as Assassin's Creed Codename RED). While the content of the latest work, which is set in feudal Japan, is attracting a lot of attention, Ubisoft has announced a new release of the work.Official pagerevealed a mysterious number sequence and a katakana character string arranged in a matrix. It has been revealed that ARG promotion has started for the upcoming unveiling.

Overseas fan communities are already working on deciphering the code, but although the code itself is not particularly difficult, since it uses katakana, many fans are using katakana-specific characters such as shi to tsu, n to so, etc. It seems like they are having a hard time reading. I won't go into details about the results of the decoding this time, but since it's content that Japanese fans can enjoy without any problems, I'd like to introduce a little bit of the details.

Please note that there are still parts of this code that have not yet been deciphered, and it appears that progress is being made day by day, so if you are interested, please first check out the basic content, existing codes, and their sources. Why not enjoy decoding the code in preparation for the upcoming unveiling?

Number sequence posted on official page

Also on the official page is a katakana table with 9 rows and 9 columns.

This time's cipher creates a character string by combining a number sequence and a katakana table. For reference, if you compare the number sequence “62 11 13 95 43 45 27 13” in the first row with the table and arrange the katakana, you will get 62 (ji), 11 (ka), 13 (n), 95 (ha), 4 (Yu), 45 (U), 27 (Ge), 13 (N), which can be read as “jikanhayugen” (time is finite).

If you create a string in the same way, you can confirm that there are multiple hints scattered on the network and that some kind of reward is available.

Additionally, in the promotional email issued by Ubisoft, along with a countdown to the unveiling, there is a number sequence like the one below that does not make sense in the table above, so new information is probably needed.
