Shinji Mikami’s Next Game – GhostWire: Tokyo – Announced at Bethesda’s E3 Press Conference
Shinji Mikami announced GhostWire: Tokyo at Bethesda's E3 Conference. Tango Gameworks' latest blends supernatural horror with action adventure gameplay.
Shinji Mikami has been teasing a new game for a few days now. Yesterday, he cryptically mentioned that he’d wrapped up his last rehearsal and was ready for the “real thing” today. At Bethesda’s E3 conference we finally got a look at what Mikami and his team at Tango Gameworks have been cooking up. Give the trailer for GhostWire: Tokyo a look below.
Mikami is, of course, the name behind some of the biggest titles in video game history. He helped bring Resident Evil, Resident Evil 2, Viewtiful Joe, Resident Evil 4, and a number of other games to market as a part of Capcom. In 2010, he put together Tango Gameworks and tried to go back to his roots with 2014’s The Evil Within. That game was met with middling critical reviews; however, the sequel built on what it did well and was seen as a satisfying sequel.
GhostWire: Tokyo is a bit of departure from past Tango Gameworks titles. This is an action adventure game that deals with supernatural horror. People in Tokyo are mysteriously vanishing and it is your job to figure out why. From the trailer, it looks like you’ll have your own spectral abilities along with your trusty bow and arrow.
Throughout your journey, you will face off against numerous different types of ghosts and creatures from different urban legends. The cinematic trailer showed off a number of wild-looking entities and I’m interested to see what else the team is cooking up.
