Sony has announced that Sucker Punch’s new game is Ghost of Tsushima, an open world game set in feudal Japan.
The Ghost of Tsushima trailer sees a group of Mongols attacking and burning down Japanese villages. One of the Mongol invaders asks a Samurai if he is willing to surrender. We never hear his answer but it’s probably fair to guess that it would’ve been NO!
The game will focus on one of the last surviving Samurai as they fight back the invading Mongol hordes. It seems that being a Samurai won’t be enough and that our hero will need to adopt the way of the Ghost if he is to be victorious.
Sucker Punch has been responsible for the Infamous series of games and also the much loved Sly Cooper series as well. They have shown on numerous occasions that they are able to reinvent themselves and take on new gaming genres. That seems the case with Ghost of Tsushima.
