Ghostwire: Tokyo is the next game from Shinji Mikami’s Tango Gameworks, developers of The Evil Within. It was first announced as a PlayStation exclusive during Bethesda’s E3 2019 conference. Since then, Bethesda and all studios under its umbrella have been acquired by Microsoft, but the game is still launching as a timed console exclusive on PS5 and PC.
The title is an action-adventure game that will see players take on paranormal threats called The Visitors. These creatures take on forms like a child in a yellow raincoat, a bride who never got married, and other manifestations of loss and separation.
We got our first look at Ghostwire: Tokyo’s gameplay during 2020’s PlayStation 5 reveal event, but it’s been pretty quiet since then. Last summer, the game was delayed to this year in order to ‘protect the health’ of those working on the game.
