Ghost of Tsushima's launch is in less than a week and the excitement is palpable. So, if you're not impatient enough, here's the game's Japanese trailer.
Quite symbolically, Ghost of Tsushima's Japanese trailer starts with a shot from the Kurosawa Mode, named after the iconic director Akira Kurosawa.
His work in depicting Japan's honourable warriors has been so acclaimed, it's no wonder Sucker Punch used it as reference material for the game itself, as well as the mode that emulates Kurosawa's colour grading, sound, etc.
If you prefer your Ghost of Tsushima experience in colour, worry not - the trailer picks up with some explosive action from the game's regular mode. And there's more action than you can shake your katana at.
We're not exactly fluent in Japanese, but the trailer clearly gives a little introduction into Ghost of Tsushima's story. Jin, once an honourable warrior, is forced to become the Ghost in order to take down his enemies, and the game is as much about his task as his personal transformation.
And you certainly don't need to know Japanese to see how gorgeous Ghost of Tsushima's in-game world is. Some of the locations are, in fact, so incredibly beautiful that we already see ourselves staying there far longer than needed.
Knowing that, you can expect Ghost of Tsushima's photo mode to sag under the weight of Photographers of Tsushima.
Ghost of Tsushima launches on July 17, 2020, and the preloading has started already. Expect to download around 40GB, with another 9GB coming as part of the day one patch. That's unless you're a Digital Deluxe owner, in which case you've 22GB worth of skins, commentary and so on.
