Shinji Mikami has announced a new game and it’s not a survival horror or anything to do with The Evil Within.
It’s been a long time since anything has been heard from developer Tango Gameworks, but they were back at Bethesda’s pre-E3 conference to reveal a brand new game called GhostWire: Tokyo.
The footage was all pre-rendered and it’s impossible to tell what the gameplay will be like, but the concept seems to involve a Rapture-like phenomenon were people are mysteriously disappearing, leaving behind only their clothes.
On top of this is a whole raft of weird looking supernatural creatures that are clearly influenced by the Japanese myths of yōkai, in terms of how they look and whether they’re malevolent or not.
The only real clue as to how the game plays is that you are ‘armed with your own mysterious spectral abilities’ and have to ‘face down the occult, unravel conspiracy theories and experience urban legends’.
All those things sound like fun, so we’re definitely already interested in what was vaguely described as an ‘action adventure’.
There was no hint of a release date, but given the trailer was entirely CGI, and gave no hint as to how it would play, that probably means it’s going to be a long wait.
It may even be a next gen title, given that we now know that both Microsoft and Sony’s new formats will be out next Christmas – and GhostWire sounds like it’s at least that far away.
