PlayStation 4 exclusive Ghost of Tsushima will be hitting the console in summer 2020 and a new trailer that was dropped during The Game Awards earlier this month.
The trailer evokes many a lone samurai story, with the eponymous Ghost, the last samurai Jin Sakai left standing during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. The trailer looks quite gorgeous, certainly evoking some of the same style and imagery from this year’s hit game Sekiro, but with a less fantastical slant that’s more in keeping with Japanese Chanbara cinema, such as Seven Samurai and Sanjuro, and aiming to be true to the feudal Japanese setting. However, Jim will have to learn and adopt new battle techniques that go beyond those of a traditional samurai.
The game is the first from Sucker Punch Productions since the release of inFamous First Light in 2014, first being revealed in October 2017 at Paris Games Week. This was followed by gameplay at E3 2018, as Sony went for an atypical format to their presentation, but it was almost a year and a half before this latest showing at The Game Awards 2019.
Having only seen bits of the game here and there, it has long been speculated that Sony might be holding Ghost of Tsushima back, waiting to unleash it as an early PS5 launch title. However, the State of Play broadcast earlier this week clearly stated that it was still coming to PlayStation 4. It’s part of what looks like an increasingly busy summer 2020 for Sony, with The Last of Us Part II set to drop in May, them having to find a good release window for Ghost of Tsushima, and the company needing to shift gears to focus on building up the buzz and anticipation for the PlayStation 5.
