Tango Gameworks, the studio formed by long-term Capcom employee and Resident Evil director Shinji Mikami, revealed their latest effort during Bethesda's E3 2019 press conference.
Unlike most of the studio's survival horror output, GhostWire: Tokyo is an action-adventure set in a spooky facsimile of Tokyo, in which members of the public have been spirited away by lord knows what leaving behind just piles of clothes. The place looks like a teenager's bedroom.
It's up to the player to unravel the mystery, as they avoid the attentions of obviously evil skeletal demons in the abandoned metropolis. Yikes!
At the moment, we don't really know precisely how the game will play, other than that the sleuthing city-searchers will be equipped with their very own 'spectral abilities'.
GhostWire: Tokyo's presentation also featured a brief cameo from Tango's Creative Director Ikumi Nakamura, who stole the hearts of the audience with her endearing enthusiasm and eccentricity - not to mention her little dance pose as she signed off:
Tango Gameworks, founded in 2010, previously released popular scare-em-ups The Evil Within and its 2017 sequel. As yet, a release date for their latest project remains unknown.
Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
