Foxes In Ghosts Of Tsushima Have Been Petted More Than Eight Million Times

Sony has shared some interesting stats about the first 10 days of Ghost of Tsushima - including the rather adorable fact that the cute little foxes have been petted more than eight million times by players.

PlayStation posted a tweet containing a number of stats about the game, such as the fact the foxes have been petted a whopping 8.8 million times in the first 10 days since its release.

Naturally, as the game has now been out for two weeks, we can only assume that the figure is even higher and those little digital foxes have even more attention lavished upon them by animal-loving gamers.

Non-fox related stats also show that during the game's first 10 days there were 57.5 million duels, a whopping 810 years spent on horseback and 15.5 million photos taken.

If you're keen on more stats, there's also been 156.4 million standoffs, 28.1 million songs played on flute and 14.2 million haikus written.

Fairly mind-blowing stuff, eh?

The game's creative director, who is appropriately named Nate Fox, revealed the furry little fellas would be pet-able back in May.

He told GamesRadar: "Actually that was not always on the plan. We put in this business where the fox would guide you to shrines and the fox is lively, the fox is cute and people in Sucker Punch are demanding that they should be able to pet the fox.

"So, you can pet the fox."

As well as being wildly popular with gamers, Ghost of Tsushima was praised by Toshihiro Nagoshi, who works as executive director of the Yakuza franchise.

Speaking about the open world samurai adventure, during a Sega livestream Nagoshi said: "The Kurosawa Mode doesn't simply change the colour, but has more of a technical approach by properly changing the number of frames to that in old movie.

"Foreigners who tickle the fancy of Japanese people more than Japanese people are... rather amazing, no?

"There's like a notion that Westerners don't understand things (about Japan), but that hypothesis itself is mistaken."
