The Ghost of Tsushima Jin Sakai Comes To Life Thanks To Prime 1 StudioJose Lopez
One of the most revered video games of the year has been Sucker Punch Studios’ Ghost of Tsushima, a Sony PlayStation 4 exclusive that tells the story of Jin Sakai, a samurai battling Mongols in Japan. The visuals and gameplay have received many accolades, so any collectibles bringing the world of the game to life would have to be just as impressive. Luckily Prime 1 Studios is in charge and they’ve just announced their 1/4 scale statue of Jin Sakai himself.
The character of Jin is wearing his iconic ghost armor and stands at about 23 inches tall. Standing atop a fox shrine with a fox itself beside him, the hero samurai is posed holding his sword in contemplation of his next battle in defense of the island of Tsushima, leaves sculpted blowing around him.
This statue is beautiful. Leave it to the artists at Prime 1 to truly capture the vibrant and poetic beauty of the game’s design. It’s almost as if a screen shot from the game was magically translated into 3D.
Ghost of Tsushima is definitely one of those video games that you know will go down in history as one of the classics and having such an amazing piece in your collection to celebrate its awesomeness is exciting. I’m fairly certain this statue will be just as memorable and any video game fans would be happy to have it on their shelves.
