Two-way Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani is one of the best players in the MLB right now, starring as both a pitcher and a batter for the Los Angeles Angels. And now he has a new Topps trading card, inspired by Ghost of Tsushima. The one-of-a-kind baseball card, designed by artist Chuck Styles, reimagines the former Hokkaidō Nippon-Ham Fighters player as Jin Sakai, as seen on the game’s iconic box art.

Replacing the protagonist’s smoke bombs and swords are baseballs and bats, but the flowing fields and falling leaves remain intact. This card is available from 25th August through 28th August, with a holographic version also up for grabs. While Sucker Punch’s open worlder isn’t mentioned in the product description directly, it’s clearly been inspired by the PlayStation 4 – and now PS5 – smash hit.
