Daisuke Tsuji has been confirmed as the Ghost of Tsushima character lead in Sucker Punch’s upcoming open-world samurai game for PS4.
The Kuwait-born actor now lives in Los Angeles, California and has worked in TV, film and theatre. On his resume, Tsuji lists Reign and Pedernales in his previous voice-over work in the video game industry, yet we’ve been able to find no details about those games.
His TV and film work includes:
- The Man in the High Castle
- The Blacklist
- Letters from Iwo Jima
- The God Chair
You can see him in action via the showreel on the Daisuke Tsuji website.
On his blog, he also wrote about his excitement for the new role as one of the currently unnamed Ghost of Tsushima characters.
I am the main character in Ghost of Tsushima, a new game by Sucker Punch. They just revealed the first trailer for it at the Paris Games Week. The game looks beautiful and I’m heavily featured in it (watch until the end!).
Watch the Ghost of Tsushima trailer.
He goes on to write:
I still can’t talk about any details of the game. All I can say is I’m really stoked, grateful, and did I mention STOKED to be a part of this amazing adventure.
However, some details have already leaked about his character, who will be named Jin.
“Steel and swordsmanship – you must master both to survive in this colossal quest across 1274 Japan, where the Mongol army has taken over Tsushima Island. Don your armour, sharpen your katana and strap on your longbow as you assume the role of Jin, a battered samurai who remains the island’s only hope against the ruthless Khan and his vicious empire.
Through swaying bamboo forests, ornate castles and luscious landscapes one brave soul must fight back against overwhelming odds. Can you build your legend as “the Ghost” in a bloody tale of betrayal and sacrifice, inspired by classic samurai stories?”
The Ghost of Tsushima graphics have already blown us away in the first trailer, which was all taken from in-game footage, and Sucker Punch has said that it plans to make the game feel as real as possible.
Few details are currently known about the game, other than:
- It’s set in feudal Japan in 1274
- One of the settings is Tsushima Island
- Players will be fighting against the Mongol army
Stay tuned for more details as we get them.
