Sucker Punch studios have released a brand-new trailer for the upcoming samurai combat game Ghost of Tsushima.

The cinematic trailer gives us a deeper look into an ancient Mongol-infested Japan and the protagonist, Jin Sakai’s journey. The one-minute video just gives a glimpse of Sakai’s combat style, but hypnotises you with breath-taking visuals of the Japanese heartlands, which players will soon be able to explore.

 

 

The text accompanying the trailer reads, “Tsushima is on the brink of destruction. In the wake of a crushing defeat at the hands of ruthless Mongol invaders, noble samurai Jin Sakai must sacrifice everything to protect what’s left of his home and people. As he embarks on an epic adventure for the freedom of Tsushima, he must set aside samurai traditions, embrace unconventional methods, and forge a new path—the path of the Ghost.”
