One day there will be game being set in classic historical Chinese setting that's not 3 Kingdom, but that day isn't today. Something like like Qin unification and the fall of Qin is criminally underused in spite being also extremely prominent.

From the trailer it seems that the game will start during early fall of Han dynasty. The people the MC(?) is fighting are wearing yellows which is pretty common for the Yellow Scarves/Turban. The bearded unkempt haired man that turn into a dragon(?) is also a pretty popular depiction of Zhang Jiao as per Koei Tecmo ROTK and Warriors series.

I do like the vibes. Framing romantical historical event with additional of mythical aspect is always nice much like NiOh and Onimusha.

Fate Seeker games are early Song dynasty.

I guess you can argue that Wuxia is a historical fantasy altho the theme and narrative are rarely concerning historical event per se. I haven't played Fate Seeker as combat seems to be a clickfest Diablo? But it's on my wishlist

Surprised they don't just take this new formula they're good at and do a new Ninja Gaiden in that style. Not like the new Ninja Gaiden games were like the original arcade game anyways. It's weird they've just let what was once Tecmo's biggest series basically die. It's been almost ten whole years now since their last one.

I wouldn't say they let it die
They did port the trilogy to steam last year (possiblt to renew their hold on the license and gauge some interest) and the Nioh games do have call backs to the hayabusa ninjas
And when you think about it, they spent 10 years making increasingly less profitable (and mechanically worse) Ninja Gaiden games - no wonder they wanted and needed to make something new

They haven't made a Ninja Gaiden since 2012. That I'd say is just letting it die. They tried making one after Tomonobu Itagaki left, it sucked, and they haven't tried another since. In the meantime however, what was left of Team Ninja have figured out their own thing, yet they haven't applied it to any iteration of Ninja Gaiden.
