Available from September 3rd, the book will be available digitally with a hardcover edition also on sale, complete with fancy slipcase. Amazon UK currently have The Art of Ghost of Tsushima on pre-order for £34.02. Here’s the official blurb direct from Dark Horse themselves:

Step into the role of Tsushima Island’s last samurai through a vivid showcase of detail in a vast and exotic locale, featuring elegant illustrations of dynamic characters, spirited landscapes, and diagrams of Samurai sword-fighting techniques. Inspired by traditional Japanese art, this gorgeously designed art book showcases every vivid detail of Ghost of Tsushima!

Ghost of Tsushima has been a major success for Sony and developer Sucker Punch, both critically and commercially. Sitting on an OpenCritic average of 85, it is now the fastest-selling PS4 original IP, even beating Horizon: Zero Dawn by selling 2.4 million copies in its first three days.

Yesterday, Suck Punch revealed Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, a surprise multiplayer mode coming later this year. Legends will be part of a free update that includes missions crafted for two players as well as a wave-based survival game type that accommodates four.
