Ghost of Tsushima's staggering success in Japan is well documented at this point. Not only did the PlayStation 4 exclusive break sales records for Sony, it also inspired the real island of Tsushima to make Sucker Punch studio heads Nate Fox and Jason Connell permanent ambassadors. A huge honour, and it's just got even better for the Seattle-based developer.
At the Famitsu Dengeki Game Awards 2020 — which just took place over the weekend — Ghost of Tsushima managed to scoop an impressive number of fan-voted gongs. For starters, Daisuke Tsuji, the English voice actor and face of protagonist Jin Sakai, won Best Actor. Jin Sakai was also crowned Best Character.
Ghost of Tsushima itself won Best Graphics and Best Action Adventure Game. Meanwhile, Sucker Punch was credited as Most Valuable Creator, alongside Nintendo's Animal Crossing team.
Since its release in July last year, it's been great to see Ghost of Tsushima do so well in Japan. The samurai epic has clearly struck a chord with many a Japanese gamer, and we can't help but ponder the impact of the game's inevitable sequel.
