Jin Sakai Ghost with Text

Jin Sakai as the Ghost

Ghost is a play style that the player can adopt, the other is the samurai. By completing tasks and stories you'll increase the Legend of the Ghost. The ghost uses underhanded techniques which the samurai consider dishonorable. The tactics use stealth attacks and special tools.[1]

Fear is a tool to manipulate enemies and sneak up to enemies. Some of them are frightening, and some are actually frightened. The dark mask is the ultimate icon that people fear.[2]

Backstory Edit

Nate Fox of Sucker Punch said Jin Sakai "was raised in the code of the Samurai and he has to give up some ideas of who he thought he was to become the Ghost to save his home, and without spoiling anything I can say he has to make some personal sacrifices in order to do what is right for the people of the island.”[3]

"Jin finds another way and inevitably becomes the Ghost to protect and save his people. The Ghost becomes a larger than life character. Feared by the invaders, loved by the locals as their protector. Fox elaborates that, "as the player you get to decide how the Ghost evolves and where you put in your skillpoints, what kind of armor you wear and upgrade, so it’s very customizable."[3]
