Ghost of Tsushima, the highly-anticipated open-world action game, is scheduled for launch next week on July 17th, 2020. With only about a week before the game’s release, game developer Sucker Punch Productions sheds light on a unique feature called Kurosawa mode that gives players a more cinematic experience when playing the game.
Kurosawa mode is a special setting that makes the game’s appearance very reminiscent of classic samurai films. Sucker Punch has stated that Ghost of Tsushima takes heavy inspiration from works by acclaimed director Akira Kurosawa, hence the mode’s name.
Changes in Kurosawa Mode
The most noticeable change when playing on Kurosawa mode is the black and white appearance of the game, giving the atmosphere of what has been called “Samurai Cinema.” Film grain is also added, further emulating the feeling of watching renowned movies such as Rashomon (1950), Seven Samurai (1954) and Yojimbo (1961).
In addition to the visual differences mentioned above, Kurosawa mode also increases wind effects as players explore the island of Tsushima during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. Audio quality is adjusted to likely give off a more dramatic effect to cutscenes and gameplay.
