The long anticipated Ghost of Tsushima from Sucker Punch finally has a release date.
The title will release on June 26th for the PlayStation 4 and will tell the story of Jin Sikai’s journey to becoming “The Ghost” as his land is invaded by a ruthless Mongol army. From the PS Blog:
Today we revealed a brand-new trailer that showcases our hero, Jin Sakai. In the past, we’ve shown the world around Jin, but this time we wanted to give you a taste of the people he meets along his journey and the scale of the threat that forces him to transform into a new kind of warrior. While you’ll catch glimpses of several of Jin’s allies and enemies in today’s trailer, there are two we want to focus on in particular.
The first is Jin’s uncle, Shimura, the jito (lord) of Tsushima and a father figure to Jin. He’s trained Jin since childhood in the traditional ways of the samurai, and grows increasingly concerned by the tactics Jin starts to adopt as he abandons his teachings and becomes The Ghost. The second important character we’re highlighting today is Khotun Khan. The Khan is the leader of the invading Mongol army and a ruthless, cunning enemy who uses everything he knows about the samurai to try to destroy them. He’s a brutal, unrelenting adversary that Jin will quickly learn not to underestimate.
There will be a few editions of the title including a digital deluxe, physical deluxe, and of course a collector’s edition. Here are the details:
Digital Deluxe ($69.99)
Special Edition ($69.99)
Collector’s Edition ($169.99)
It’s great to finally have a release date for Ghost of Tsushima as it has been in development now for nearly 6 years! We’re not only excited by the way the game looks, but also at the closing year for the PlayStation 4 with Final Fantasy 7 Remake, The Last of Us 2, and Ghost of Tsushima all coming in a three month span. What a finale!
