Ghost of Tsushima Gameshow Question

Here's a fun story for you: UK gameshow The Chase recently featured a trivia question on Japanese history. A contestant was asked: "The term 'kamikaze' or 'divine wind' comes from the typhoon that saved Japan from invasion in 1281 by which ruler?"

Three answers were presented: Tamburlaine, Ivan the Terrible, or Kublai Khan. A potentially tricky question if you don't know much about Japan. The contestant went with Kublai Khan.

Fortunately, the contestant was confident in his answer thanks to Ghost of Tsushima β€” the PlayStation 4 exclusive that takes place during the initial Mongol invasion of Japan. He tells host Bradley Walsh that he had "just played a game on PlayStation where the Mongols invade Japan", referencing Sucker Punch's open world epic. Very educational!

Lovely stuff, although we don't quite know how well the contestant fared overall. If you happen to be a big fan of The Chase, perhaps you can let us know in the comments section below.
