From the studio that made The Evil Within comes Ghostwire Tokyo, about the sudden disappearance of the inhabitants of – you guessed it – Tokyo. With one of the co-creators of Resident Evil also on board, this looks to be a suitably spooky paranormal investigation made by some top talent.
When is Ghostwire Tokyo released?
The game was announced at E3 2019 without any sign of a release date – which usually indicates a bit of a wait. 2021 seems like the earliest release date at this point.
However, the game’s creative director Ikumi Nakamura left Tango Gameworks only a few months after the game’s announcement, which may well delay the game further.
What consoles and platforms will Ghostwire Tokyo be available on?
What’s Ghostwire Tokyo about?
Echoing a recent superhero movie, the trailer for Ghostwire Tokyo shows much of Tokyo’s inhabitants suddenly vanish into thin air, and then gives us some visually striking but unexplained images of a hooded street archer, a mysterious masked man, a moving Japanese gate and a dying flower.
It looks as if players will become the mysterious bow-wielder glimpsed in the trailer, and will have to work out why people are disappearing by meeting human survivors and friendly spirits, battling paranormal enemies and unravelling conspiracy theories. In a unique mix of genres, the game is said to be primarily an action-adventure game with a few hints of survival horror.
The trailer also suggests the game will be graphically stunning, with a few shots looking impressively photo-realistic.
Is there a trailer for Ghostwire Tokyo?
Yes – it’s as stylish as it is spooky.
