According to a VGC report, the senior developers of the game will receive the price and a letter of appreciation at a digital ceremony.
“[Fox and Connell] Spread Tsushima’s name and story around the world in such a wonderful way,” said Tsushima mayor, Hiroki Hitakatsu. “Even many Japanese do not know the story of the gen-ko period. With regard to the world, the name and location of Tsushima are literally unknown, so I can not thank them enough to have told our story with phenomenal graphics and deep stories.
According to HantaKatsu, the Tourism Ambassador is the responsive as long as they wish. The idea of presenting this honor is not new because it considers it “since I discovered that they used the name of Tsushima as the name of their work”
Connell expressed its gratitude for the price on its Twitter page earlier in the day:
