The Japanese samurai game we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived, as Ghost of Tsushima will be released on July 17, 2020. As you probably know, the game was designed with Japanese culture in mind and is set on the real island of Tsushima, near Japan. With such a heavy focus on the culture, a lot of players are wondering if there will be a Ghost of Tsushima Japanese dub? Let’s take a look.
Does Ghost of Tsushima Have a Japanese Dub?
While Suker Punch’s main focus was on English audio, Ghost of Tsushima will have a Japanese dub with full audio support. Players that would like to experience the game with Japanese audio can enable English subtitles if they’d like, play without any subtitles, or play the English dub with Japanese subtitles. To change Ghost of Tsushima to the Japanese dub, simply head into the settings and adjust the game to the language you’d prefer.
In the game, the main character Jin Sakai will be voiced by Daisuke Tsuji, a well-known voice actor born in Kuwait. The Jin Sakai Ghost of Tsushima Japanese dub will be voiced by Kazuya Nakai, a Japanese voice actor best known for being the voice behind Zoro in One Piece.

As we mentioned earlier, the game will lean heavily into Japanese culture and is set on Tsushima Island, which is a real location that sits between Japan and Korea. Ghost of Tsushima will also heavily lean into Japanese culture through its storytelling as the main campaign focuses on the last remaining samurai in Tsushima, Jin Sakai. As the Mongol Empire gets set to invade Tsushima in its quest to take Japan, Sakai must abandon his traditional training as a samurai and learn the way of the ghost.
The game takes place in the year 1274 and will take players through three main acts, with each act being set on a different map location. Further, it is an open-world game, so there are tons of optional missions to complete, strongholds to liberate, and much more. Those that make their way through the main campaign will easily be able to spend over 40 hours with it, if not more.
