Shuhei Yoshida

Shuhei Yoshida Has His Own PS Stars Digital Collectible

When he isn’t getting a BAFTA fellowship or recommending his favorite games, PlayStation’s Shuhei Yoshida is best known for his celebration of indie games and all-around wholesome attitude. Well, now he’s also going to be known as a digital collectible that can be earned through the PlayStation Stars loyalty program.

PS Stars Shuhei Yoshida “Employee 32” collectible

Those signed up to the recently-launched PS Stars will find the “Employee 32” challenge with a digital Shuhei Yoshida bobblehead waiting as a reward.

To complete the challenge and earn the Shu bobblehead, players have to play one of the following games:

  • A Space for the Unbound
  • Before Your Eyes
  • Cult of the Lamb
  • Neon White
  • Sifu
  • The Knight Witch

Why these specific games? Well, they are recommended by the man himself and are intended to help “celebrate our pioneering independent creators and their long-time champion at PlayStation — and the newest BAFTA Fellow — Shuhei Yoshida.”

Once he’s been earned, players can add Shuhei to their showcase. Here’s @l0rdV1ta’s collection, with Shu taking the most prominent spot:

It will be interesting to see if other key PlayStation staff are featured as digital collectibles. My money is on Hermen Hulst or Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann popping up next.
