It seems that even the skills of a samurai or the stubborn perseverance of Tsushima’s people can’t match the power of a cute, fuzzy friend. PlayStation Japan’s Ghost of Tsushima popularity contest ended with an overwhelming victory for the mysterious fox. The results were tweeted by the PlayStation Japan Twitter account.

The Ghost of Tsushima popularity contest was originally held on July 17, 2021 to celebrate the game’s first anniversary. The PlayStation Japan account invited the internet to vote for their favorites from 12 of the game’s main and minor characters. However, they were all powerless to the fox, who garnered over 30% more votes than even the game’s protagonist, Jin Sakai. The fox also walked away with the vast majority of votes within his ballot (due to the limitations of Twitter-based polls Ghost of Tsushima popularity contest was divided into three hooks of four contestants each).
In the game, the fox (or foxes, as it is not clear whether there is only one) is a friendly, intelligent animal that serves as a guide Ghost of Tsushima players to one of the many fox sanctuaries scattered around the game world. When honored, fox shrines can increase the number of charms Jin can equip, allowing players to customize and improve his skills. It can also be petted, an activity that players enjoyed. In the first ten days since the game’s launch, players had collectively stroked the fox nearly nine million times.
Ghost of Tsushima is available immediately on PlayStation 4. A “Director’s Cut” edition of the game with the Iki Island expansion will be released on August 20, 2021. The PS5 edition of the Director’s Cut will include console-specific improvements.
