Samurai were members of the middle to high levels of the warrior class similar to the knights in Europe and followed strict rules in regards to combat and honor.
The ninja were people who specialized in the covert-ops and unconventional warfare like assassinations and sabotage.
So the ninja would be the one to carry out an assassination and the samurai would be the one sent into open battle.
But either way this is not a history game so it doesn't matter and the skin looks great anyway.
