Ghost of Tsushima directors Nate Fox and Jason Conell receive an award from the mayor of the actual city of Tsushima.

Mayor Hiroki Hitakatsu says in a statement that both are being rewarded for spreading Tsushima’s name and history.

“Even a lot of Japanese people don’t know the history of the Gen-ko period. When it comes to the world, the name and location of Tsushima is literally unknown, so I can’t thank them enough for telling our story. with such phenomenal graphics and deep storytelling. ”

Fox and Conell are official Tourism Ambassadors, ‘until they don’t want the title anymore’. Hitakatsu also says it is working with developer Sucker Punch and Sony Interactive Entertainment to create a tourism campaign based on the game.

Ghost of Tsushima was released for PlayStation 4 last year. The game tells the story of the Mongol invasion of the island of Tsushima and sold 5 million units.
