Assassin’s Creed Comic Hides Secrets, Disappointing Artist Message
This year killer creed Franchise turns 15 years old. By that time, the franchise had expanded into a variety of games, mobile spin-offs, books, movies, short films, etc. It’s a vast, complex universe involving calendar plots. history, dark cults, and ancient aliens. And the ancient aliens, Isu, have a complicated language, and that very language seems to frustrate an artist working on a newly released piece. killer creed humorous.
From the original 2007 killer creed adventure, each installment in the franchise adds more and more lore. At this time, it’s a wild universe and a big part of the madness are the ancient creatures, later named Isu, people with advanced technology, lived on Earth like gods long ago and were wiped out 77,000 years ago after a war with the ancient people they enslaved. Either way, Isu made all sorts of gizmos and jewelry that thousands of years later are still being hunted by power-obsessed people. And many of these items are presented in the Isu language, most of which have not been translated until 2021, when fans finally cracked it.
But it seems to be difficult to work with the language, as seems to be revealed by a text in the recently released comic book, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – The Transformations. At one point, we see a close-up of an ancient Isu stone of some kind covered in ancient alien language. And translated, part of the text reads:
“If someone esplasi how to write this damn thing it would be appreciated”
It’s fairly easy to see what this person might be trying to say in the Isu language, even if the language makes a few mistakes. The message could mean saying:
“If someone could explain how to write this damn thing that would be greatly appreciated.”
This funny little message was first discovered by killer creed more super fan at Access Animus—with those who first cracked the language Isu a few years back. They also discovered “many incorrect Isu language passages” in the manga, suggesting that the artists or writers involved were not given enough information or guidance on the Isu language, thus occurring. errors and disappointments.
Kotaku contacted Ubisoft, the manga’s creator, and artists.
While some fans laughed out loud at this angry easter egg, others were annoyed that the creators of the comic book didn’t consult the fan guide and translation tools before making the book. However, it should be noted that it would be very strange for an official app to be approved by Ubisoft. killer creed based on fan translation, assuming the people behind the comic even know about the work. (Which would explain why they included this Isu Easter egg: They probably didn’t expect anyone else to read it!)

Personally, as a big fan of Assassin’s Creed and its wild lore, I totally get how frustrating it must be to try and tell stories within that universe. It’s fun to experience the mess from the outside looking in, but working on it is likely a pain in the ass at times and I don’t begrudge an artist for sneaking in a little jab at how annoying and absurd it must be.
