The world of action-adventure game Ghostwire: Tokyo is darkish. In reality, the presence of sunshine is non-existent in all promotional materials seen so far. While the native prefecture is bereft of life and ominous faceless males stalk the as soon as over-populated metropolis, the game continues to be blinding; we are able to see the deserted neonscape of Tokyo casting an eerie prismatic glow on the city waterfront. This morning, developer Tango Gameworks launched gameplay footage by IGN, showcasing extra of the colourful fight.

Ghostwire: Tokyo began out because the third installment of The Evil Within, and the affect of horror veteran Shinji Mikami is loud and clear right here. The game can also be wealthy in Japanese folklore. We can spot a determine wearing white wielding a big pair of scissors speeding towards protagonist Akito, the horrible kuchisake-onna, or “Slit-Mouthed Woman,” of common city legend. The footage confirmed off how we are able to use a mix of stealth and our supernatural arsenal referred to as “Ethereal weaving” to hold every encounter attention-grabbing. One particular assault would seem to resemble a game of Ayatori, a Japanese string game akin to Cat’s Cradle.

The Kappa encounter is the standout second in the beginning of the trailer, although. The amphibious spirit is likely one of the most well-known in Japanese legend, and their cucumber obsession is a notable quirk. The greatest and worst half is that this creature is thought to drag shirikodama out of the rear of their sufferer, which is one way or the other worse than no matter soul-stealing tech Anders Hellman engineered in Cyberpunk 2077.

Ghostwire: Tokyo is scheduled for launch on March 25 for PC and PlayStation 5. Ghostwire: Tokyo – Prelude is a visible novel delving deeper into the mass vanishing, and is out there free of charge on Steam, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4.
