Sucker Punch already confirmed this, but for those of you who weren’t paying attention, it’s reiterated that Ghost of Tsushima will be playable in Japanese with subtitles. The game – which is striving for historical authenticity – will offer a dub as an alternative to the English voice acting. The Seattle studio’s working with Sony’s own Japan Studio to help ensure it gets all of the intricacies accurate.
Interestingly, unlike during this week’s E3 2018 press conference, the inFAMOUS maker is showing the PlayStation 4 exclusive to press in Japanese, so it clearly prefers the localisation, too. The level of care and attention that’s going into this title is quite wild: according to Eurogamer, the company even sent an audio scout overseas to record native Japanese birdsong.
