Ghostwire: Tokyo – Everything We Know
With February 2022 PlayStation State of Play, we now know more than enough about the new game from the creator of Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami. Ghostwire: Tokyo’s State of Play showed some gameplay elements, level designs, enemies, etc. We will now discuss everything we know about the new game from Tango Gameworks in detail.
The plot of Ghostwire: Tokyo takes place in Tokyo. The plot focuses on the mysterious disappearance of nearly every citizen of Tokyo and the appearance of the otherworldly creatures. These otherworldly creatures are known as Visitors. The protagonist of the game is Akito. He has some supernatural powers. Akito’s power comes from being possessed by a detective spirit known as KK.
Akito must learn the true objective of KK while fighting with the Visitors and learn the Visitor’s sudden appearances in Tokyo. During these quests, Akito will encounter a Hannya wearing mask group, who may help him unveil the mysteries behind the bizarre events going on in Tokyo.
Tango Softworks’ Ghostwire: Tokyo will be an action-adventure game played through the first-person perspective. The protagonist, Akito, will use otherworldly and paranormal abilities to fight the enemies, Visitors, that have invaded Tokyo.
The game’s combat uses spells that come from Hand Gestures. Kuji-Kiri is the inspiration for these Hand Gestures. When Akito drains enough health of the Visitors, then they will show their Core. The players can then use takedown moves to destroy the Core, killing the spirit. The State of Play did show that the players can get a bow, which they can use to kill the enemies.
Stealth is a possible way of completing a mission. The players can also take down the Visitors in stealth. Other gameplay elements include climbing over the buildings using Tengu Yokai. According to the developers, Tengu Yokai is the fastest way to travel across Tokyo. The players will find some corrupted Torii Gates, which they will have to cleanse. This cleansing will clear out the sinister fogs around the city.
