Ghost Of Tsushima Has A Beloved One Piece Actor In Its Japanese Voice Cast

You'll be able to listen to him by switching to the Japanese voice track from the start of Ghost of Tsushima.


Sucker Punch Productions showed off Ghost of Tsushima in the latest State of Play. The showcase provided an in-depth look at the game and many of its features, one of which is a Japanese voice track that will be available from the very outset of the game. Since the game is set in Japan and the main character, Jin Sakai, is Japanese, this is good news for those that want to immerse themselves deeper into the setting and characters.

Jin didn't speak much during the State of Play demonstration, but fans of One Piece may have had their ears perk up when he did. That's because the Japanese voice actor for Jin is Kazuya Nakai, who plays the Straw Hat crew's very own swordsman, Roronoa Zorro. As fans of One Piece will be able to attest to, Nakai's voice is iconic, and, across the series, he has delivered some stunning performances as Zorro, which certainly bodes well for Jin and Ghost of Tsushima. The Japanese voice track for the game also includes the option to turn on subtitles.
