Foxes have always been regarded as adorable, at least by anyone who’s not a complete monster. The foxes in Ghost of Tsushima, however, up the ante with their ridiculously adorable fox antics.
The in-game foxes will lead you to shrines. After honoring the shrines, you have the option to pet said foxes by pressing the R2 shoulder button. You should press R2.
I mean, how adorable is that? If you ask me, the world could use more adorable stuff in general. The adorableness provided by Ghost of Tsushima‘s foxes is on a whole new level, though it’s a level that I feel is much-needed, especially with the current state of the world we live in.
