I don’t play Rainbow Six Siege, however Ubisoft’s current collaboration with Ikumi Nakamura may change my thoughts.
Nakamura, the inventive director who gained the gaming world’s coronary heart together with her energetic GhostWire: Tokyo presentation at E3 2019, has been bouncing across the business as a freelancer since leaving ZeniMax Media subsidiary Tango Gameworks later that year. Her newest gig is with Ubisoft, particularly in designing a few spooky operator uniforms for Rainbow Six Siege. Much like Nakamura herself, they completely rule.
These uniforms, which can be found for buy now, additionally outfit operators Echo and Dokkaebi with matching weapon skins and charms. After a quick perusal of the remainder of the skins within the sport, I can safely say Nakamura’s contributions are far and away the good Rainbow Six Siege has ever seen.
“Since it’s an FPS, I even designed the nails of the female operators with care!” Nakamura wrote on Twitter earlier this week. “Isn’t it nice to get dressed up on the battlefield once in a while?”
Nakamura additionally shared just a few idea sketches from her time designing for Rainbow Six Siege. At some level within the course of, she even urged surrounding Dokkaebi’s face in flames as a result of origins of the Korean operator’s identify in Japanese, however admitted such an impact was in all probability “overdone.”
With a résumé designing for a number of the most trendy video video games of all time (Okami, Bayonetta, The Evil Within, et al), it ought to come as no shock that Nakamura’s Rainbow Six Siege skins are unbelievable. Here’s hoping her dream of opening her personal studio is realized sooner relatively than later.
