Sony revealed a new trailer for its upcoming Samurai game Ghost of Tsushima, and it looks awesome! As you’ll see, the game is visually beautiful, and it looks like it tells a wonderful story. The game was made by Sucker Punch Productions, and they have achieved something truly remarkable.
The story is set on on Tsushima Island in 1274, and the game spins around the last samurai, Jin Sakai (Daisuke Tsuji), “during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. Jin will have to master a new fighting style, the way of the Ghost, to defeat the Mongol Empire and fight for the freedom and independence of Japan.”
When previously talking about the upcoming video game, Sucker Punch game director Nate Fox said:
“Seriously, how come no one has made a sprawling samurai open-world game yet? Feudal Japan is beautiful; from the swaying bamboo forests to the ornate castles, it’s a place that demands to be explored.
“I’ve been a fan of samurai comics since 5th grade, from ‘Lone Wolf and Cub’ to ‘Usagi Yojimbo. The types of characters, landscapes, betrayal, and sacrifice in those stories are a rich vein ready to be translated into a video game.”
Ghost of Tsushima will release in the Summer of 2020.
