Tango Gameworks is no stranger to horror games. The studio created The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2, both of which were very well received, incredibly creepy games full of horrifying monsters and awesome gameplay. This should come as no surprise, since the studio was founded by Shinji Mikami, the director of several Resident Evil games as well as Dino Crisis. Mikami-san’s expertise shows through in both The Evil Within games, and it is also being carried over into Tango Gameworks’ newest project. That project is Ghostwire: Tokyo, and it is shaping up to be another awesome horror franchise for both Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks. The game releases at the end of March, so while we wait patiently to be spookified by all of the ghosts and goblins, here are some things you should know about Ghostwire: Tokyo.

Ghostwire: Tokyo is, curiously, regarded as an action-adventure game by its developers. I can kind of understand since it doesn’t remotely represent the survival horror of The Evil Within or Resident Evil and takes place in first-person, but all of the specters on display in gameplay footage are clearly designed to inspire fear in players. Perhaps the first-person perspective is meant to make the game feel more like a first-person shooter rather than a traditional horror game.

  In the game, you play as Akito, the seemingly sole survivor of some kind of paranormal catastrophe that has vanished all of the citizens of Tokyo, and replaced them with horrifying spirits that represent the many monsters of Japanese mythology. These yokai roam the streets and alleys, seeking prey to feast upon. Thankfully, Akito isn’t completely powerless in this situation.

Early in the game, Akito becomes possessed by a spirit named KK, who, while having his own objectives, allows Akito to use magical powers to combat the ghouls roaming Tokyo. These powers take the form of what the developers call “karate meets magic”, where Akito uses complicated hand movements to cast magic spells that deal damage. When a spirit has taken enough damage, their core is revealed, allowing you to finish them off with a flashy finishing move. This is just a simplistic explanation of the combat though, as there are many different enemy types who all have unique moves and abilities, and will require different tactics to have their core revealed.

Throughout the game, you will be hot on the tails of a mysterious, shadowy order of paranormal beings who wear threatening masks. As far as I can tell, these characters are the main antagonists, and are surely the ones behind the event that caused the haunting of an entire city. Who are they? What is their ultimate goal? I guess we’ll have to wait for the final game to find out.

Ghostwire: Tokyo is looking great, especially after the recent 20 minute PlayStation showcase that dived into the gameplay and the making of the game. It will hopefully deliver action and scares in equal measure, and kickstart a brand new franchise for the relatively new studio behind it. Ghostwire: Tokyo is out on March 25th, 2022 as a timed exclusive on PS5 and PC.
