Ghost of Tsushima is approaching its first anniversary in July 2021. The open-world action game follows Jin Sakai, a samurai on fighting against Mongolians invading his home, the island of Tsushima. Players can use traditional samurai actions or the stealth of the “ghost” to fight back against enemies while gathering allies among other people on the island.
Ghost of Tsushima is available for the PlayStation 4, and its film adaptation is in development. It won Best Art Direction at The Game Awards 2020. Daisuke Tsuji won Best Actor for his portrayal of Sakai at Famitsu Dengeki Game Awards 2020.
