No matter how many gameplay demos we see - we'll never get tired of Ghost of Tsushima, and its recently launched Japanese trailer really deserves your attention.

Now, yours truly won't feign a language expert here - I can't understand any more than you do. However, the trailer is so masterfully cut that you won't need to, and you'll still somehow understand everything. Never mind, just watch it and you'll see. 

Editing mastery aside, Ghost of Tsushima's trailer shows off the plight of protagonist Jin in his two equally deadly roles - Jin the samurai, and Jin the Ghost. 

The first of the two play styles is the lightning-fast, head-on style that has Jin duelling his enemies by calling them out in the field of battle. Ghost of Tsushima's second style is the titular one, where Jin takes to more stealthy methods of dispatching his enemies. 

After some concern that Ghost of Tsushima may force certain play styles, Sucker Punch stressed that this will not be the case. 

"When he's a Ghost, he can turn around and play as a samurai because he's always a samurai. All his training, using the Katana, that stuff is buried in him deep. On the stealth [on State of Play], if you wanted to jump off the roof and start fighting like a samurai, you could totally do that. We don't spec you out and suddenly you can't play as a samurai. He's always at his core, his heart of hearts, a samurai. The Ghost is this legendary warrior that he's evolving into", they said. 

Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, Ghost of Tsushima launches on July 17, 2020, as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
