There’s some exciting news for those who like their Japanese-themed video games to have an element of authenticity. Sucker Punch has revealed that a Ghost of Tsushima Japanese voice option will be available at launch!
Outed by Eurogamer, the action-adventure will be localized in Japan, so players will have the choice whether to listen to the authentic audio track or not. That’s not all.
Apparently, Sucker Punch are really going to town to bring a Japanese flavor to its samurai-slashing PS4 exclusive. The team are also going to be capturing audio from Japan to record birds singing and other noises that they can feature in-game.
The graphics are looking fantastic too, which is no big surprise as the Senior Environment Artist working on the game was also involved in the graphics for Uncharted and The Last of Us.
Ghost of Tsushima is set in the year 1274. As one of the last surviving samurai, your goal is to protect your community while sticking the honorable code of the samurai.
A release date has yet to be revealed, and there’s no word yet on whether the Ghost of Tsushima Japanese voice option will be available at launch.
