At the PlayStation Showcase livestream, Tango Gameworks revealed a thrilling glimpse of Ghostwire: Tokyo through an exciting, brand-new trailer that stars the menacing Hannya.
Hannya has unleashed a catastrophic fog upon Tokyo that wipes out most of its population. In the aftermath, he leads the Faceless, a menacing group of loyal zealots who bend to his will. Where smiling citizens once walked now stands an army of one-of-a-kind creatures only Tango Gameworks can create: The Visitors.
Inspired by Japanese legends, folklore, and tales, The Visitors are striking, imaginative enemies that lurk throughout Tokyo. Many characters are from famed dark stories like “Kuchisake-onna,” characters that stay true to Tango’s desire to honor Tokyo through an authentic, never-before-seen game world.
Awakening in the famed Shibuya Crossing, Akito finds himself partially possessed by a strange spirit and surrounded by the dangerous creatures invading Tokyo. Desperate to ensure the safety of his sister, Akito must ally with the spirit and master powerful abilities to battle his way through Tokyo’s dangerous streets.
With the power and speed of the PlayStation 5 console, Tokyo is vividly brought to life thanks to the console’s stunning ray-tracing technology. As players walk its streets, reflections of gorgeous neon lights drip onto puddles that become glassy mirrors of the world’s vibrancy and beauty. Ghostwire: Tokyo also delivers faster loading times to keep players immersed, and haptic controls that allow players to tangibly feel their actions while traversing Tokyo’s streets and rooftops.
