Daisuke Tsuji, who previously voiced for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Death Stranding and Prey will do English dub for Jin Sakai. Tsuji is cast alongside Hira Ambrosino, Keisuke Hoashi, Minae Noji and Patrick Gallagher for English voiceover.

Sucker Punch will be featuring a "Samurai Cinema" mode in Ghost of Tsushima with a black-and-white visual filter to show respect to its Japanese roots and thus, is making it an interesting addition for both fans of Samurai films and games.
