After the latest trailer, Ghostwire: Tokyo still feels hazy, but I知 rooting for it

This game feels strange, it's like taking a bit of everything and mixing them together, the game looks weird at best.

After the latest trailer, Ghostwire: Tokyo still feels hazy, but I知 rooting for it

Even after catching the latest gameplay trailer for Ghostwire: Tokyo during today痴 PlayStation Showcase 2021, I知 still sussing out this strange, supernatural, intriguingly first-person action-adventure game from Tango Gameworks. What痴 its deal?

The folklore-inspired apparitions (which continue to be the biggest highlight), the cool rain-soaked city-streets setting, the crazy spell-casting animations that痴 how I would sum up Ghostwire: Tokyo before, and that痴 more or less still how I壇 sum it up today.

After the citizens of Tokyo are swept up by a 田atastrophic fog, the player character, Akito, becomes 菟artially possessed hence that gunk covering his face and he痴 got to fend off ghostly Visitors, as well as a masked threat named Hannya, to save his sister.

According to Bethesda痴 Parker Wilhelm, Akito can wield wind, water, and fire, along with more 田onventional abilities, against the Visitors. 添ou値l need to master Ethereal Weaving a powerful art that attunes the elements with spiritual energy alongside other equipment and ghost-hunting skills to face such a threat, he explained in a blog post.

A little terminology and added context to latch onto: 展hile attempting a Core Grab, a gambit where players can pull out a Visitor痴 essence at close range, the [DualSense] triggers simulate resistance as the spirit tugs against your finishing move.

I知 sure Tango is going to get weird with this game, and that痴 what we池e here for. I could use more concrete details about the combat. I知 sold on this being a neat haunted city to explore (which might actually be compelling enough on its own), I just need more convincing with these largely one-on-one fights. So many quick cuts in these videos.

That split-second shot in the trailer where Akito flings himself to the top of a skyscraper, then lassoes a ghost? Good shit. The scene with the hospital bed caught my eye, too.

Ghostwire: Tokyo is aiming for a spring 2022 release on PlayStation 5 and PC.
