Shinji Mikami Debuts First Trailer for GhostWire: Tokyo at E3

It's not quite survival horror, but something eerie is going on in this game.

By Chris Morse

When Shinji Mikami announced he was headed to E3 2019, fans were abuzz about whether he might be showing off the next chapter of The Evil Within or something new altogether, but it looks like Tango Gameworks has gone in a different direction with its newest title, GhostWire: Tokyo. The studio made its appearance during this evening's Bethesda conference, introducing a game that is all-new and not quite survival horror. See for yourself by giving the above trailer a watch.

Described as an action-adventure game, GhostWire: Tokyo is set in the city of its namesake, where strange disappearances are hitting the population. It's up to one mysterious protagonist, wielding a variety of spectral abilities, to uncover the source of the mystery and purge the city of evil. This journey will see its hero facing down the occult, unraveling conspiracy theories, and experiencing urban legends like never before. The game's tagline implores you to not fear the unknown, but rather attack it.

As you can see above, the cinematic trailer merely sets the stage and introduces the world without showing off any gameplay just yet. However, this game certainly sounds eerie in its own way, so this could be one to keep your eyes on if you are a fan of Mikami's work, whether you enjoy his more recent projects or his roots within the Resident Evil franchise.

Further details on GhostWire: Tokyo are still scarce at this time, including a potential release date, but we'll be sure to pass along any new information on it as soon as we receive word. Stay tuned!
