Sony has confirmed that the number of foxes petted in Ghost of Tsushima has reached nearly 9 million. The impressive figure was just one of many released by the company, but it’s the furriest fact of the bunch, so let’s focus on that.
According to PlayStation, a whopping 8.8 millions furry red critters were petted in Ghost in the first 10 days of its launch, suggesting that number has likely hit the 10 million mark at the time of writing.
Meanwhile, nearly 60 million duels have been fought and 15.5 million photos have been taken. 810 years have been spent on horseback and 139.4 million enemies have “collapsed in fear.” Those are some seriously impressive numbers.
As for the game itself, it’s absolutely dominated in sales and has become the fastest-selling first-party PS4 original IP debut of all time. Ghost of Tsushima sold an eye-watering 2.4 millions copies in the first three days of its launch.
There were some concerns about Ghost’s reception with it being a Western-made game focusing on feudal Japan. However, worries were unfounded, as the game has been flying off shelves in Japan, even selling out across the country. Meanwhile, it’s become the third Western game to receive a perfect Famitsu score.
Esteemed Japanese magazine Famitsu is one of the biggest gaming publications in Japan, and in the past, has only doled out two perfect game review scores to Western games. These were for The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim in 2011, and Grand Theft Auto 5 in 2013. Now the team at Sucker Punch has a lot to celebrate, as Ghost of Tsushima has become the third Western game to receive a perfect score from Famitsu.
