If you own any form of social media, your timelines were probably filled with stunning visuals and screenshots from your friends playing Ghost of Tsushima on PlayStation 4. The game takes place on the island of Tsushima, which forms part of the Nagasaki Prefecture, which has now stepped into partnership with the game to promote each other.
Ghost of Tsushima is a work of fiction, but it is based on events that took place 700 years ago. The island has remained surprisingly unpopulated since then, sporting most of its natural forest, fields and mountain ranges today. Naturally, people playing the game are curious about the place it takes place in, and the tourism page for Nagasaki Prefecture has dedicated a whole page to the game and the history it is based on.
It is pretty cool and worth checking out if you’re interested in learning more about the island and the mongol invasions, the first of which is depicted during the opening scenes of the game.
Ghost of Tsushima is a brilliant game that I thoroughly enjoyed. If you haven’t checked it out yet, it certainly is worth a look.
