The new game is said to be better and more action-oriented than Tango Gameworks' previous titles The Evil Within and its sequel, The Evil Within 2. For those living under the rock, Ghostwire: Tokyo brings a mix of action and horror from a first-person perspective, with a side mix of Kuji-kiri hand gestures. Set in modern-day Tokyo, that's crawling with paranormal elements drawn from Japanese mythology.

"But Ghostwire is not horror. Though there is an eerie element to the world, this is the studio's first foray into the action-adventure sphere. They are taking their strengths in building a tense atmosphere and unforgettable creatures and bringing them into something completely new and different. Armed with a bevy of upgradeable, supernatural elemental abilities, you will purge Tokyo of the spirits roaming its streets and return the city to its former glory," Bethesda explained earlier.

"We want the player to feel like a badass, spell-casting, high-tech ninja exorcist defeating countless evil spirits," says Hara. "In order to achieve this, we chose intricate, deliberate hand gestures as the primary weapons, instead of simple guns. Unlike guns, our gestures allow us to put a lot more movement and personality into the player's action as the player's hands are organic extensions of the character. This system is unique to Ghostwire. It's karate meets magic. Often, magic casters have this image of not being physically strong. That isn't the case with Ghostwire. In Ghostwire, you're casting magic with martial arts movements," the company added.
