Ghost of Tsushima was a bit of a hit with Japanese developers when it released in 2020. Most notably, former Yakuza / Like a Dragon director Toshihiro Nagoshi was blown away by Sugar Punch’s open-world epic, while Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida said so. It was the most impressive game played that year.
And now, legendary ex-Capcom developer Shinji Mikami has praised Jin Skye’s adventure. “It’s been a long time since its release, but I’ve finished Tsushima’s Ghost,” Mikami wrote on Twitter. “It was a lot of fun, the last part was great.”
OK, so it’s not quite the same level of praise as previous examples, but it’s still nice to know that the man who helped craft some of the most iconic titles in gaming history enjoyed Ghost of Tsushima.
All of this is obviously a talking point because Tsushima’s developer, Ghost of Sukar Punch, is headquartered in the US. The game itself is based on the Mongol invasion of Japan, which took place in the 1200s.
