Tokyo, from the creators of The Evil Within, is an action-adventure, not a horror game


After showing the first cinematic teaser and the recent trailer for GhostWire: Tokyo, most players thought Tango Gameworks was working on an adventure horror game. The judgment turned out to be erroneous, which became known thanks to an interview with IGN with the head of the game Kenji Kimura and the founder of the development team Shinji Mikami.

In the conversation, the project manager said: “GhostWire: Tokyo is an action-adventure game. It includes elements of survival, but dispenses with the characteristic features of the horror genre. Since we are using Japan as our surroundings, we plan to provide players with an eerie and mysterious experience associated with urban legends, myths, popular horror stories and local youkai folklore.“. That is, interspersed with horror at least in the atmosphere of the project will still be.

Shinji Mikami, regarding the upcoming creation of Tango Gameworks, commented IGN as follows: “We haven’t lost our passion for survival horror, but the team is focused on making GhostWire: Tokyo their best game ever.“.

GhostWire: Tokyo will be released in 2021 on PC and PS5, the exact release date is still unknown.
