Ghost of Tsushima Wiki

Jin's horse

  • Edit source
  • View history

L

  • 1.1 Available horses
  • 1.2 Gameplay
  • 2 Behind the scenes
  • 4 References and notes

Description [ ]

Jin Sakai's first horse dies at the Battle of Komoda Beach . He is soon offered a second horse, which rides with him until he is exiled and escapes from Castle Shimura [1] , where it dies from exhaustion and its wounds. A temporary horse is used until Jin plans to return to Castle Shimura to secretly leave Lord Shimura a note. Yuna provides Jin an option to pick a third and final permanent horse. [2]

Available horses [ ]

During the Prologue , after the battle on Komoda beach when Jin is escaping from the Mongols with Yuna, you are given the choice between three horses at the stable. A fourth horse is added for those with the Digital Deluxe or Collector's Edition of the game. A fifth horse has been added exclusively for New Game+ and will be given upon starting the mode. This selection is permanent.

The choices in color are:

  • Dapple Grey
  • Thin Brown (selectable during “ Heart of the Jito ”)
  • Golden Buckskin (Digital Deluxe/Collector's Edition horse)
  • Black with red mane and tail (New Game+ horse; automatically given when starting the mode)

This is merely a cosmetic choice, no horse has any advantages over another. After selecting a horse you choose its name; Nobu (Trust), Sora (Sky) or Kage (Shadow).

Following the death of Jin's second horse during " Honor and Ash ," he receives a temporary brown horse with a patchy coat. In " Heart of the Jito ," Jin is given a new permanent horse with the new name option of Kaze (Wind), alongside the two other name options the player didn't choose previously. The player can select from the two (or three, with the Digital Deluxe/Collector's Edition) horses that were not picked previously, or choose to keep the temporary horse. When starting New Game+, the available names will be the remaining two that were not picked in the previous play-through. This horse will die during the New Game+ play-through of "Honor and Ash" as well, and when the player starts "Heart of the Jito" later, the choices available for horses and names reset to the original three (black, white, or dapple grey; Nobu, Sora, or Kage).

Gameplay [ ]

L3

When Jin enters combat on the ground, if his horse is nearby it will run away to not be attacked. It cannot be injured or die in combat. Jumping from a relatively high ledge with the horse will cause him to fall over, knocking Jin off his back if he has not already jumped off.

Jin can also ride other horses found in the world, be they Mongol horses or otherwise. After riding them they will respond to Jin's whistle as long as they are within a certain distance of Jin, causing his main horse to no longer respond. However, leaving the other horse behind for long enough will cause Jin's whistle to call his horse again.

Behind the scenes [ ]

Originally the player could not choose the horse's name, and it was just called Nobu. In the Japanese localization of the game, since the Japanese do not name horses, Jin simply calls by whistling or saying "horse." [3]

Screen Rant

Ghost of tsushima: horse color & name options (& what they do).

Ghost of Tsushima gives players a choice between three horses and three different names at the start of the game, but does it matter what you pick?

Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima forces players to make a very important choice at the beginning of the game – select a horse as well as a name for the four-legged companion. With little information provided as to how to make a proper decision, some players may assume this has little bearing on the overall game, and that assumption is correct.

[WARNING: Spoilers for Ghost of Tsushima below]

After Ghost of Tsushima ’s tutorial, which includes following the thief Yuna through a Mongolian camp in order to retrieve Jin Sakai’s sword, players will be led to a stable. Here they’ll have to choose between three different horses, one brown, one white, and one dapple. They’ll also be given a choice between three different Japanese names: Nobu (meaning trust), Sora (meaning sky), and Kage (meaning shadow).

RELATED:  Who Ghost of Tsushima 2 (Or Story-Based DLC) Should Be About

The horses in Ghost of Tsushima are practically invincible. No matter what Jin does – trying to ride them off a cliff or stabbing them with his sword – the horse remains alive and well. It’s only once during the main story campaign in Act III that Jin's original horse eventually dies. Afterwards, players will get a second chance to choose between a mare and a name. The horses this time are black, dapple, and a brown color. There are also three new names to choose from.

Does It Matter What Horse & Name Players Choose?

horse in ghost of tsushima

It may seem as though the choices players make in regard to their horse will have an impact on Ghost of Tsushima's  story , particularly since players can make other important choices throughout the game. However, the choice of horse actually has no impact on the rest of the game. Each of the three options presented to players ride the same. They have the same speed and endurance. The only difference is aesthetic, meaning players should choose a horse and its name based on what they prefer.

If players bought the Digital Deluxe Edition of Ghost of Tsushima , this will give them a fourth option – a beautiful brown horse. Some players may think this horse would has some special abilities, since it’s an in-game bonus not everyone has access to. However, once again, this horse is no different from the other options, aside from its physical appearance. There’s no real incentive to choosing this horse unless the individual player prefers its look compared to the other options. It may be surprising that the horses players choose from have no real impact on the overall game in Ghost of Tsushima , but at the very least, it makes the initial decision less intense when players realize the only thing at stake is aesthetic.

Home » Ghost of Tsushima » Ghost of Tsushima Horse – Choose Best Horse Name and Color – Nobu, Sora or Kage

You get to choose which Ghost of Tsushima horse to ride for the rest of the game pretty early on. I wasn’t really sure if there is some hidden difference between the horses you get to choose from other than their color. Then the game asks you to pick a name for your new horse. That really got me wondering. Ghost of Tsushima has a lot of RPG elements. Maybe picking a horse at the start of Ghost of Tsushima has hidden benefits? Maybe one of them is the fastest horse? Can you customize it later? Which horse is the best? Those are the questions we’re going to answer in our Ghost of Tsushima Horse guide.

ghost of tsushima horse guide which horse to choose

The Best Horse to Choose in Ghost of Tsushima?

Which horse you choose in Ghost of Tsushima depends entirely on your aesthetic preferences. At the beginning of your adventure, the game will take you to a stable, where you’ll have your choice between a white horse, a black horse, and a dapple horse. I can tell you right away that we conducted tests and there are no hidden benefits to either choice. It comes down to which horse color pleases you the most and the choice has no effect on gameplay. Horses are a method of transportation; nothing more, nothing less.

Ghost of Tsushima Which Horse Name to Pick – Nobu, Sora, Kage?

The game throws you another curve-ball. You are asked to choose the name for your new horse. Your choices are Nobu, Sora, or Kage, which, in English, mean Trust, Sky, and Shadow, respectively. Having lots of RPG elements you might think that different horse names in Ghost of Tsushima might have some effect on your horse speed or stats. Turns out it is just a stylistic choice. So, all you have to do is pick the one that you think is the coolest and be on your way. It doesn’t affect gameplay in any way, it just gives you a bit more of a connection to your noble steed.

Ghost of Tsushima Digital Deluxe Horse Location

The Digital Deluxe bonus horse in Digital Deluxe appears in the first stable that you’ll come across. If you’ve purchased the Digital Deluxe edition of the game, instead of the usual three horses, there will be four. The fourth, brown horse is the bonus one. It even has a little yellow icon above it, so there’s no way you can miss it.

Moreover, if you attempt to take one of the usual three horses, the game will alert you to the fact that you can take the bonus one instead. When you select it, you’ll also get to give it one of three preset names. So, select the horse, give it a name, and continue on your adventure.

What is the Fastest Horse in Ghost of Tsushima?

According to the tests we’ve conducted, all the horses you get to pick at the start in Ghost of Tsushima have the same speed. We started the game three different times and ran the same route with different horses. We timed all that and it turns out all the horses had the same time. You can see the results of our test in the video on our youtube channel . You might want to subscribe while you’re there.

Can You Customize your Horse?

Yes, you can customize your Ghost of Tsushima horse. However, as far as we can tell, the options are fairly limited. Aside from the color and the name you get to pick at the beginning, the only other customization we’ve seen is the different saddles. You unlock those by finding the dozens and dozens of Sashimono Banners scattered all across the map. The more of those you find, the more different saddles you get. That said, the saddles don’t really affect anything, aside from looking snazzy. If you pre ordered or bought the deluxe edition of the game you will also get a special looking saddle.

How to Change your Horse?

To change your horse in Ghost of Tsushima, you have to find another stable. Simply approach one of the horses there and press R2 to mount it. You don’t get to name it, though, nor do you really get to keep it. If it’s in range of your whistle, the new horse is going to come, but if you wander too far away from it and whistle, your horse from the start of the game is going to appear. In conclusion, you can temporarily ride a different horse, but in all likelihood you will revert to your starting horse sooner or later.

Are there any differences between the Ghost of Tsushima horses?

Ghost of Tsushima horse

At the end of the tutorial, you'll have to pick your Ghost of Tsushima horse. You're given no direction here in-game, other than picking between three colours. You're warned that your choice, along with the name you give it, will be stuck for the rest of your time with Ghost of Tsushima . If you're wondering if any of the horses have any differences and what your choice means for your playthrough, read on for our complete Ghost of Tsuhima horse guide.

Ghost of Tsushima horses explained

After Yuna has led you through the Mongol camp right at the start, and you've retrieved both your sword and Armour, you'll reach the stables. This is the end of the first section of the tutorial, and when Ghost of Tsushima really starts to open up.

When you get to the stables, you first need to decide which color horse you want; black, white, or dapple. There are no differences between the horses . Every horse gallops at the same speed, your choice is simply your personal preference.

You'll then also need to pick a name for your horse and once again, this doesn't have any effect on gameplay. Jin will call your horse by its name every now and then, but that's all. Your horse also cannot die in regular gameplay so don't worry about it succumbing to Mongols or bandits.

Ghost of Tsushima Digital Deluxe horse

If you've got the Digital Deluxe Edition of Ghost of Tsushima, you get access to the brown horse. Again, it has no stat bonuses over the other horses, but is a lovely shade of brown. When you reach the stables, the brown horse should be an extra option alongside the other three, at the end.

Horse name and color in Ghost of Tsushima mean more than you might think

Saddle up, samurai.

horse name options ghost of tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima is a samurai sandbox that lets gamers choose how protagonist Jin Sakai carries himself while traveling across the island of Tsushima to liberate his home from the invading Mongol forces.

Developer Sucker Punch Productions gave players a vast amount of choices when it comes to how to approach combat and what kind of armor to don during your travels, but many of those options come after the game's first major decision: selecting Jin’s horse.

Ghost of Tsushima horse color and name options

After the opening scenes of the game that transform the island of Tsushima from Jin’s peaceful domicile into a warzone, the hero is escorted to a nearby village by an ally. In town, you’ll find a stable with three samurai warhorses that are brown, white, and black, respectively. Once you've chosen a color, you're forced to name it Nobu, Sora, or Kage.

horse name options ghost of tsushima

Players will have three horse choices at the beginning of 'Ghost of Tsushima.'

Ghost of Tsushima will translate their Japanese names into their English equivalent, which are Trust, Sky, and Shadow. This might make it seem like each horse comes with their own special perk or unique stat but that isn’t the case.

No matter what steed you pick for Jin, they’ll function the same way. Jin will call out the name of the horse you choose in this moment for the rest of the game, and you won't be able to ever change it after the fact. This will make specific cinematic cutscenes slightly different since Jin will say one of the three names depending on your selection, but your choice won’t have much of an overt impact on gameplay. You'll just have to see that horse color and hear that horse name a lot .

The choice ultimately comes down to what name a color combination you like the best — even if that's a white horse named Shadow.

Ghost of Tsushima horse mechanics

Once you’ve selected one of the three horses, you’ll be able to hit right on the D-Pad to whistle and call out for your horse. This mechanic is pretty forgiving in that you don’t have to keep close tabs on your horse much at all. If you decide to dismount and explore a mountain top on foot, your horse will appear directly behind you whenever you whistle even if it wasn't there a moment later.

horse name options ghost of tsushima

Regardless of your choice, all three horses will function the same way.

Just because you have your own horse, doesn’t mean you can’t ride any of the other horses that you’ll find during your adventures through Tsushima. You just won’t be able to tame a different horse other than the one you selected from the start.

During combat, whistling for your horse won’t work, so if you need to make a quick escape, stealing a Mongol horse will be your best bet. However, you can ride your horse into combat and slash a few enemies down before you dismount to finish off the rest.

Your horse will never be in danger of suffering lethal damage from enemies or even falls. If a Mongol does land a blow on your horse it will buck and throw you off, which can leave you in a really bad spot if you’re surrounded by enemies. And if you fall off a cliff your horse will fall to the ground but Jin will be the only one who takes impact damage.

For the most part, your horse will be your unfaltering travel companion but you can also ride it into battle and catch a group of Mongols off guard. The choice is yours.

Ghost of Tsushima for PlayStation 4 will be released on July 17.

'Ghost of Tsushima' Horse Guide: Do Color and Name Matter?

Ghost of Tsushima is a deep, combat-focused RPG, and one of the very first choices presented to the player early on in the campaign revolves around your horse. In this guide, we address a few questions you may have about your trusty steed in the early hours of your journey. Does your horse's name or color have any impact on its stats? Where do you get the Digital Deluxe pre-order bonus? All these matters and more are discussed below.

Where is my Digital Deluxe Horse?

ghost of tsushima horse guide

If you pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe version of Ghost of Tsushima via the PlayStation Store, you're entitled to a unique horse style that standard-edition samurai won't get. But it's worth noting that you can't use it immediately. After one of the opening missions in which you first encounter Yuna, she'll take you to a stable where four color options await: white, black, spotted and Digital Deluxe. You'll find the latter on the right side of the stable.

Does the name or color of my horse matter?

While other action-RPGs like Breath of the Wild and Red Dead Redemption 2 may have trained gamers to look for stats or differences in the horse they choose, there isn't much of that at all in Ghost of Tsushima . With that fact in mind, it's worth emphasizing that your starting horse name and color should be chosen entirely on your personal taste. There are no sats, even hidden ones, that we're aware of, so just pick the creature that best suits your mood.

Here are the horse naming options you'll see in-game:

  • Nobu (Trust)
  • Kage (Shadow)

This choice marks the start of a long friendship with your horse, but it has nothing to do with the horse or Jin's development.

Is there really nothing I can change?

For the most part, your horse in Ghost of Tsushima is just a way to get from point A to B. All horses do so at the same rate, and all of them can take an unlimited amount of slashes with your weapons or the weapons of your enemies.

In the northeast section of the map, north of the Golden Forest, you'll find the Ogawa Dojo. Here, there's an optional quest to recover three Sashimono Banners. There are 80 of them in the game, and they're used to outfit your horse with a cool saddle. These saddles are also purely cosmetic, however, so don't go hunting for the "best" one.

General Horse Tips

ghost of tsushima horse

Here are some other tips worth knowing about your trusty steed.

  • Horses in Ghost of Tsushima can take unlimited damage from you and your enemies.
  • To call your horse, press left on the d-pad.
  • If your horse gets hurt it will take longer to return. Otherwise, this thing will defy heaven and earth to reach your location.
  • You can mount and ride any wild or Mongol horse in the game by pressing R2 to mount, just like your main horse.
  • Switching to a wild horse does not rid you of your starter horse. Once you whistle to call it, it will come back.
  • There are certain story junctures that take you to stables where it's possible to change your horse. In general, though, get used to the very limited choices you make over the course of the narrative. Your first option for a switch happens at the midpoint of the campaign.

That's all you need to know about how horses work in Ghost of Tsushima.

Ghost of Tsushima is available now on PS4.

How to Call Your Horse in Ghost of Tsushima

Image of Morgan Shaver

In Ghost of Tsushima , you can explore on foot or atop your trusty steed. If you get off your horse and can’t seem to find where you left it, or you simply want a quicker way to get back to your horse you can call it.

Wondering how to do this and how it works? Here’s a quick rundown explaining how to call your horse in Ghost of Tsushima!

horse name options ghost of tsushima

To travel through the beautiful world of Ghost of Tsushima, you can either fast travel , walk, or ride your horse.

If your preferred way to travel is on horseback, it’s worth learning a few tips and tricks. Notably, how to call your horse over to you. 

To call your horse, all you need to do is press the left button on your d-pad and Jin will whistle, beckoning the horse to his location.

You can whistle as many times as you like, but it won’t increase the speed at which the horse returns to you. It is fun, though. 

When you’re in active combat, you can’t whistle for your horse. You can either finish off all of the enemies to end the combat scenario, steal an enemy’s horse and disengage from the fight, or try and retreat on foot. 

Once you’re out of combat, you can whistle for your horse once more. If your horse is in the area where all the action is happening don’t worry, your horse can’t die and it won’t get hurt. It’s a magical, invincible creature.

Even if you take a tumble down a cliff with your horse, the horse will be completely fine. 

If you’re wondering about whether the starter options provided with your horse have an impact on anything, you’ll be happy to hear that they don’t. 

When you first choose your horse in Ghost of Tsushima, you’re able to pick from three colors: Black, Dapple, and White.

You can also name your horse, though you won’t be able to give it a custom name like Roach. Instead, you have the option to either name it Nobu (Trust), Sora (Sky), or Kage (Shadow).

All of the horse options perform the same when it comes to stamina and speed, including the speed the horse returns to you when you call it.

Ghost of Tsushima Horse Guide – Which to Choose, Colors, Name

Ghost of Tsushima Six Blades of Kojiro Mythic Tale Guide

In this Ghost of Tsushima Horse Guide we will guide you on everything that you need to know about your horse in Ghost of Tsushima. Your horse will be your main companion throughout the game and you will ride your horse for transportation. Rather, your horse will be your only means of transportation in the game so it is vital that you should know everything about it.

Horse Guide – Ghost of Tsushima

Our Ghost of Tsushima Horse Guide details everything you need to know about horses in Ghost of Tsushima.

Which Horse to Choose in Ghost of Tsushima

When you start playing the game for the first time, you are given the choice of selecting your very first horse in the prologue. You are given three choices to choose from unless you purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game where you will have a fourth bonus option as well.

Choosing Horse Colors

The very step in choosing your horse is choosing the color of the horse. The base game has three base colors to choose from which are Black, White, and Dapple. However, Digital Deluxe Edition players also get a fourth color choice which is the Brown Mane Warhorse. These are just visual skins and do not affect the performance of the horse in any way. You can pick whatever color that suits your style.

Choosing the Horse Name

After you’ve picked the color of the horse, your next step will be to choose the name of the horse. There are three names to choose from here. These are Nobu, Sora, and Kage. Each name has a different meaning as well. Nobu means Trust, Sora means Sky, and Kage means Shadow. Same as the color, choosing any fine is just fine. There are no differences in the game for any of the available options. Each name and color is just visual.

Using Your Horse

To call your horse, you can press left on the D-Pad and when it comes close to you, press R2 to climb it. Wherever you go in the game, you will have to use your horse to move around. It will be your companion throughout the game until the very end. You can change your horse after a certain progression in the game but since they are just visual differences so it does not make any sense to change your horse unless you are bored with the name and color.

Unlike RDR2 and much similar to The Witcher 3, your horse is invincible in the game. It can take a lot more punishment than you and still does not blink an eye. It will run away at the first sight of danger and enemies can also make you fall down from the horse so you need to keep in mind that only the horse is invincible and you riding it are not. Apart from your own horse, you can also ride wild horses or horses of your enemies in the game. You can still call your own horse even if you ride another horse.

Ghost of Tsushima 2 May Want to Bring in Some New Blood

The next Ghost of Tsushima game might be better off featuring a different protagonist and leaving Jin Sakai's story untouched.

  • Potential for Ghost of Tsushima 2 lies in featuring a new protagonist, such as Jin's allies or a player-customizable character.
  • Sucker Punch could turn Ghost of Tsushima into an anthology series, exploring new settings with each entry, departing from the island.
  • A follow-up game facing a new Mongol invasion could feel rehashed, suggesting the need for fresh narrative and gameplay elements.

Virtually nothing is known about the sequel to Ghost of Tsushima , as neither Sony nor Sucker Punch have even officially announced the game. However, considering the success of the first game, it's likely that players will get their hands on Ghost of Tsushima 2 at some point, and a follow-up to 2020's samurai action-adventure has a lot of potential. To fully realize this potential, though, the game might be better off featuring a new protagonist.

Ghost of Tsushima ends with Jin Sakai either embracing his status as the Ghost, forsaking his samurai creed, or honoring his uncle's wishes, leading to a heartbreaking and fatal farewell. Most of the Mongol forces have been defeated by the time credits roll in Ghost of Tsushima , and while there are still some remaining troops, they aren't portrayed as being enough of a threat to warrant a whole new game with them as the protagonists. Some fans have speculated that a sequel could center on another, historically accurate Mongol invasion that took place just a few years after their initial attack on Tsushima, but this could result in a game that feels rehashed and stale, as there isn't much narrative or gameplay novelty it could bring to the table.

The last of us part 2 ellie hiding behind tree with ghost of tsushima logo

What The Last of Us' Roguelike Could Look Like in Ghost of Tsushima 2

Why ghost of tsushima 2 should leave jin behind, a new protagonist in ghost of tsushima 2 offers more potential.

While the next Ghost of Tsushima could change combat while still working within Jin's existing toolset and fighting style, it might be better to put players in the shoes of an entirely new hero. This new hero could be one of Jin's allies from the first game, such as Yuna or Masako, and their distinct personalities could open new doors when it comes to both gameplay and story. Alternatively, the next game could simply introduce a brand-new protagonist who is completely disconnected from the broader cast of its predecessor.

Or, if Sucker Punch wanted to take a bolder approach, it could adopt more conventional RPG staples, letting players create their own character. This character could be a completely original, custom hero, or a predefined but malleable one, echoing protagonists like Geralt or Commander Shepard from The Witcher and Mass Effect . This would be a potentially interesting change to Ghost of Tsushima 's formula , but it may be too much of a departure, adulterating what makes the first game so special.

Ghost of Tsushima Could Turn Into an Anthology Series

Going even bolder, Sucker Punch could turn Ghost of Tsushima into an anthology series, taking players to completely new settings with each entry. The first game would be a solid jumping-off point for this type of franchise, as its action-adventure and stealth mechanics could be translated to other locations and time periods. Moreover, the ending of the first game feels conclusive and satisfying, so it may be best for the next Ghost of Tsushima to leave the titular island behind, lest it beat a dead horse.

Ghost of Tsushima 's title could even serve as a solid naming scheme for future games in the series, with "Tsushima" being replaced with the name of each game's setting.

When it comes to historical action-adventure anthology games, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed doesn't really have any competition, but that could change if Sucker Punch rose to the occasion. Plenty of comparisons have already been made between Ghost of Tsushima and Assassin's Creed , and the former definitely takes at least a few cues from the latter, so perhaps it could continue following its lead by taking players to new, iconic settings every few years. These Ghost of Tsushima follow-ups could address some of the biggest criticisms players level against Assassin's Creed while being refreshing, unpredictable, and free from narrative restrictions.

Ghost of Tsushima PC Version Might Be Confirmed Soon, Says Insider More -> https://wccftech.com/ghost-of-tsushima-pc-version-might-be-confirmed-soon-says-insider/ The sprawling open world action/adventure game Ghost of Tsushima is basically the only big PlayStation franchise other than Gran Turismo that hasn't made it to PC yet. Uncharted, The Last of Us, God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man, and Horizon have all been ported to PC. What's most puzzling is that even more recent games have been ported; for instance, Horizon Forbidden West, released in February 2022 for PlayStation consoles, will launch later this month on PC. Ghost of Tsushima, on the other hand, launched in July 2020. All that might change soon, at least according to insider Shpeshal Nick , who reckons we should learn more about the PC port by Tuesday, March 5. Shpeshal Nick is considered to have a fairly reliable track record, though it's always a good idea to keep the anticipation in check ahead of an official announcement.
