'Ghost of Tsushima': Samurai adventure drops worldwide and fans are already calling it 'game of the year'
Sucker Punch Productions's samurai action-adventure game 'Ghost of Tsushima' is now available worldwide and it's already receiving tons of praise from the fans. The game began early development in 2015 and has now finally released with an expansive world expressed through beautiful artwork. One of the game's artists, Jason Connell, shared a beautiful clip promoting the game on Twitter and put in a touching message for fans of the company's work.
"So many years of artistry, hard work, research... Games are TOUGH to make...but rarely are they this much fun to create. I love our team," Connell tweeted. "I hope you all enjoy the world we've crafted. I'll be watching streams of long time followers tonight and playing over the weekend."
Well, fans have already started playing and the first reactions unanimously declare that this is easily one of the best games ever. "I’m already in love," one fan declared while another responded to Connell writing, "Just loving the game, congrats!!"
One fan tweeted, "So... I cry about EVERYTHING. How many times am I going to cry while admiring the landscape? Because I’ve already got teary-eyed and I haven’t even played yet." The game is a treat right from the beginning with mindblowing artwork and a world you can literally spend hours in. "I'm only 20 minutes in and the photo mode is already blowing my mind. You can add cherry blossoms, dragonflies, change leaves, add music... It is unreal how beautiful this game is. Can't wait to sink dozens and dozens of hours," one fan tweeted at Connell. "Major congrats to you and the whole SP team!"
"I’ve been waiting for years for an amazing samurai game. #GhostOfTsushima takes me back to my years of living in Okinawa. Unbelievable job of capturing the essence of Japan. Thank you so much. Seriously," another fan wrote. Yet another fan commented, "Your game is absolutely amazing. Best game ever. Thank you so much Jason and the rest of your team. I’ve already played 4 hours and I didn't feel the time it’s so fun and polished. Best game ever to date."
