I think the Ghost of Tsushima horse is Roach’s brother

The Ghost of Tsushima horse can have multiple names – I called mine “Kage,” which means shadow. Anyway, I think Kage is Roach’s long-lost brother.

For those unacquainted with the joint greatest horse in video game history (alongside Agro), Roach is the trusty, equine companion of a witcher named Geralt of Rivia. When he’s not galloping across the luscious fields of Toussaint, he’s usually hanging out on a rooftop, or on top of a very large rock.

Anyway, people love Roach. The fact he’s so vertically curious only makes him more endearing. So when I saw that Kage – not my Kage, someone else’s Kage, who could have potentially been named Sora or something – was also into grazing on top of grassless boulders, I thought, “I think that must be Roach’s long-lost brother.”

Check out the Reddit post below, which shows footage of the Ghost of Tsushima horse clambering around on top of a big rock.

Played Ghost of Tsushima and I guess Sora is a relative of Roach… either that or he just challenged the goddess of equine shenanigans. from Witcher3

As you can see, this person did, in fact, name their horse Sora, which means “sky.” It’s a fitting name, really, seeing as Sora is at all times trying to get as close to the sky as he possibly can. I think Sora is Roach’s brother, but I also think he’s cosmological extraordinaire Nicholas Copernicus’ equine descendant. He’s absolutely bonkers for stargazing.

Anyway, Kage – or Sora – is sound. He comes right down as soon as Jin calls him, which is another trait he shares with his coded-to-do-exactly-that brother, Roach. They’re related, it’s a fact.
