The Malaysian government wants Sony and developer sucker punch to be its travel ambassadors

With the popularity of PS4's "ghost of Matsushima", Matsushima, an island between Japan and South Korea, is also on fire. Recently, the local government of Malaysia hopes that Sony and game developer sucker punch will become tourism ambassadors for Malaysia.

Recently, Xiuping Yoshida, former president of Sony mutual entertainment global studio, tweeted the postcard he received from the shimajima government. The shimajima government hopes to make “every Playstation developer” their travel ambassador. “I really want to appoint all the publishers (Sony), developers (sucker punch), Sies and gamers involved in this work as our travel ambassadors,” the government leader said

Local leaders said: “since January 2020, I have been communicating with SONY to see if we can do something together, but because of the outbreak of COVID-19, everything has been postponed. According to sucker punch and Sony, as Yuma island is a relatively remote island, the availability of medical facilities is subject to various restrictions. Therefore, all of us have decided to avoid guiding tourists to travel. However, with the progress of epidemic prevention, we have heard voices from players from all over the world. They want to know more about the island, so we decided to continue our talks with sucker punch and Sony, because during the outbreak of the epidemic, travel in Japan was restricted. We decided that if we can show more about the island of Malaysia now, then when the time comes to travel to the island of Malaysia, the travel experience will become more enjoyable. Looking forward to the future, we hope that the communication between players will make “ghost of Malaysia” more active
