Ghostwire Tokyo is the new game from Tango Gameworks, the studio led by Resident Evil veteran Shinji Mikami which previously created The Evil Within series. At E3 2019, Mikami described the stylish and eerie Ghostwire Tokyo, which takes place in the aftermath of a Rapture-like event, as an action-adventure game in which you will fight paranormal enemies and rid the city of a supernatural evil.”
Ikumi Nakamura, creative director at Tango Gameworks, explained that players will “encounter conspiracies and the occult. You have to explore the world, face challenges.”
“We are making a new kind of action-adventure game,” Nakamura said. “It’s spooky! But not the usual kind of survival horror game Tango is known for.”
While an announcement trailer teased the story as well as the aesthetic of the game, we didn’t get to see any actual gameplay during the reveal at the Bethesda conference.

Here’s the official description: “After strange disappearances hit Tokyo’s population, it’s up to you to uncover the source and purge the city of a strange, new evil. Armed with your own mysterious spectral abilities, you will face down the occult, unravel conspiracy theories and experience urban legends like never before.”
That sounds like a bit of a departure from The Evil Within, doesn’t it? It remains to be seen if Tango Gameworks will inject some horror into the proceedings.
