The long awaited first PlayStation State of Play for 2022 has finally arrived and it did not disappoint. With a focus on Japanese developers this time around, we got a showcase of amazing titles in development from Sony’s native region, all of which we cannot wait to get our hands-on. One of these titles, Ghostwire: Tokyo, was featured once again and given a special launch trailer ahead of its March 25 launch date. Considering that the date is fast approaching, this will more than likely be one of the last things that Tango Gameworks has for us to see.
A pair of unlikely allies must join together to save Tokyo.

The trailer shows us, at a very frenetic pace, the overarching narrative, theme, and atmosphere within Ghostwire: Tokyo. We say frenetic because there are a ton of camera cuts between scenes and the first-person gameplay aspect. Regardless, the game is shaping up nicely and gives off some Bioshock vibes with the supernatural powers as well as absolute uncertainty of what’s actually happening around you. We also see a glimpse of the actual Tokyo world from the perspective of the character running on rooftops, making the overall scope that much larger.
The supposed antagonist, the masked man known as Hannya, is keeping quite on his goals, but one thing if for sure, they’re big and very ambitious. The protagonists, Akito and KK, have to work together to foil his schemes and save the city of Tokyo. Tango also revealed the Ghostwire: Tokyo Deluxe Edition, which contains the full game, Shinobi Outfit and Kunai Weapon items, and a Streetwear Outfit Pack. In addition, those who pre-order the game ahead of its launch will also get the Hannya Outfit and a Premium Biker Outfit Pack.
Lastly, if you pre-order the game digitally through the PlayStation 5, and have a subscription to PlayStation Plus, you’ll get access to the game three full days before it officially releases. You’ll also get a 10% discount if you pre-order either edition through the PlayStation store.
Ghostwire: Tokyo will officially launch on March 25 for the PlayStation 5 and for PC.
