ghostwriter: Tokyo Looks Strange and Wonderful
After Bethesda & PlayStation shared another look at GhostWire Tokyo ahead of its release in March, the media also got a hands-off view of the upcoming horror-action video game. From what we have seen, it looks terrific.
The uncut preview, taken from an early portion of the game, shows Akito and his spirit guide KK in Tokyo after a strange rapture that left only “Visitors”, almost demonic entities summoned to Hannya.
You have to clean up a lovely Tokyo. One ethereal weave at a time. It’s interesting that the game requires players to clean out enemies after they have been defeated to defeat them. This is a nod to Resi’s Crimson Heads.
GhostWire is not just about combat. Players can also use the DualSense to break doors spells and use their Bow to solve light puzzles. They also can find hidden raccoons using the Bow. Tokyo is a little zoo after the Rapture. Players can talk to floating cats that act as merchants. Nekomata is the mate.
GhostWire Tokyo was only a preview of what we will see. The preview also shows some side content, including where you have to cleanse an evil landlord. You can use a grappling hook and dogs to achieve new heights. You can also donate to special prayer boxes to receive boons.
Although it’s not clear how large GhostWire Tokyo and its sandbox are, there appears to be more underneath than most people might think. At one point in the preview, the player stopped their map, and we were able to see what looked like a lot of different items to collect and upgrade. These could be skills, equipment, or something called a synergy degree.
GhostWire Tokyo has a lot to offer, and we cannot wait to get our hands on it. Let’s hope it’s not as overlooked as the very underrated The Evil Within 2.
You can also find floating cat merchants.
GhostWire Tokyo launches on March 25th.
