Sales show no sign of samurai slowdown
Sucker Punch Productions’ acclaimed adventure title Ghost of Tsushima is edging ever closer to the 10 million sales mark, having shifted a hugely impressive 9.75 million copies since its initial release in the summer of 2020.
The new sales figures are noted as part of a wider stat report released by the developer, which details the number of times wannabe samurais have indulged in some of the title’s bloodthirsty, (and less bloodthirsty), activities over the course of the past two years. This period has seen an incredible 91.4 million Legends Mode missions played, a staggering 540.8 million Duels engaged, and — perhaps the most amazing stat of all — a huge 998.5 million pulse-pounding Standoffs.
Still, despite these bewildering sales numbers, the aforementioned stats are not the greatest Ghost of Tsushima milestones offered by the report. That title is bestowed upon the island’s own Good Boys — the foxes — which have been petted by players 75.18 million times. This is perhaps the most relatable of all the statistics, as the foxes are one of the few activities on Tsushima island that provides respite from all the violence and bloodletting. Glory be to the foxes. Here’s hoping that they make an appearance in the upcoming film adaptation.
You can check out the full list of statistics in the tweet below. Ghost of Tsushima is available now on PS4, while Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is available to purchase on PS5. This latter edition includes the Iki Island expansion, along with 4K visuals, improved load times, new filters, a Japanese lip-sync option, and support for DualSense capabilities.
This weekend marks two years since the release of #GhostOfTsushima! We are blown away by all of the support since then and so grateful for all of you! Thank you to everyone who has played and shared this journey with us!
