When Ghostwire: Tokyo was first announced in 2019, it was shrouded in mystery. The game is the next installment in
The Evil Within series from Tango Gameworks and Bethesda Softworks. However, on Thursday, Sony and Tango revealed brand-new information about (as well as the first extended gameplay of) the upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive, which is scheduled for a March 25 release on consoles and Windows PCs worldwide.
Tango Gameworks founder Shinji Mikami asked his colleagues to describe Ghostwire: Tokyo during a new video showcase, eliciting a wide range of responses. It was described as “paranormal” by character designer Reiko Hiroshima, and it was described as “authentic Tokyo” by programmer Tsuyoshi Okugawa. Unexpectedly, game designer Suguru Murakoshi responded with “strawberry shortcake,” a response that surprised even him.
“Its origins are firmly rooted in Japanese culture,” Murakoshi explained. In a Japanese studio and a setting that is evocative of Japan, it's a game where everyone will find something to enjoy. Just like a strawberry shortcake, this dish has both sweet and tangy elements.”
What is Ghostwire: Tokyo about?
Ghostwire: Tokyo is a game about a large-scale paranormal event that takes place in Tokyo, to put it another way. The residents of the city have vanished, and a deathly fog has blanketed much of the city, leaving protagonist Akito and his partner KK — a spirit who inhabits Akito's body and grants him supernatural powers — to rid Shibuya's streets of yokai, ghosts, Slender salarymen, headless schoolkids, and other supernatural creatures. Hannya, a mysterious and malicious masked man, is on the prowl for Akito and KK, and he's determined to stop them.
Ghostwire: Tokyo is a departure from Tango Gameworks' previous titles. It is not a linear survival horror game, but rather a first-person spellcasting action-adventure game in which the player casts spells. There are some similarities to Bethesda's existing catalog of open-world adventures and first-person shooters, which includes Fallout 3 and Fallout 4. However, in Ghostwire: Tokyo, your weapons are your hands, and the monsters you slay are based on Japanese legends and folklore, making this a unique experience.
Game director Kenji Kimura explains that “the power of the hands is extremely important in this game.” It is expected that Akito will be able to manipulate the elements of earth, wind fire, and water in order to defend himself against strange creatures. Also included are a bow and arrow, the ability to grapple hook his way across rooftops, and the ability to use stealth to get through combat situations. It is not only the ghosts and demons who will attempt to prevent Akito from achieving his goal; the city of Tokyo itself will be twisted and corrupted in order to mess with our hero's mind.
Which platforms will the game support and when is it releasing?
Ghostwire: Tokyo will be released on PlayStation 5 (where it will be a one-year console exclusive) and Windows PC on March 25, according to the official release date. Ghostwire: Tokyo's Deluxe Edition will grant you access to the game on March 22 if you purchase it before then.
