Kill Him

Obey your uncle’s wishes and kill him.  You will plunge your small sword into his belly and kill him.  After an emotional scene the game cuts to the credits.  After the credits you see glimpses of your life as a traitor to the Samurai.  You will have the ability to tie up any loose ends that you’ve left in terms of side missions or Mongol territories that need to be liberated.

Spare Him

Spare him and you get a different scene, where Jin walks away wearing the mask though nothing else changes.  Game fades to credits and you end up in the exact same place with the exact same dialogue once the game resumes.

The one thing that does change is the outfit that Jin is wearing once the game resumes.  When killing your uncle we had a white armor color when the game resumed.  When sparing him we had a red armor color when the game resumed.
