It has now been close to a year since Sucker Punch Productions unleashed the awesome Ghost of Tsushima onto the PlayStation 4. The adventures of Jin Sakai and his battle against the Mongol hordes was a beautiful and excellently designed experience, and the free multiplayer co-op Legends update only served to make a wonderful game even better. Fans now apparently have more to look forward to with the rumoured Ghost of Ikishima expansion.
We already know of the movie adaptation in the works, but the rumours of a possible expansion had begun swirling over the last week. Industry insider Shpeshal_Nick stoked the fires on Twitter to start things off. Now, a domain for Ghost of Ikishima has been registered to further solidify the claims.
Perhaps more importantly is that the domain redirects users to the official PlayStation 4 Games portal. This could either be further evidence of the Ghost of Ikishima expansion, or an elaborate prank.
An expansion for the breakout hit is not too far out of the imagination. Sucker Punch Productions has produced high quality expansions for their previous games after all. Both Infamous: Festival of Blood and Infamous: First Light were substantial DLC. It would not be surprising to see Ghost of Ikishima come to life either.
In historical context, the island of Ikishima,or Iki island, is located between South Korea and the prefecture of Fukuoka. Part of the Tsushima Strait, Ikishima was also a target for the Mongol invasion in 1274.
Rumours of a Sony event in July could see a reveal sooner rather than later. Fans are also expecting to see more of the next God of War, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
