Ghostwire: Tokyo follows the story of Akito, a young man who survives an event known as the Vanishing where a lot of the population of Tokyo mysteriously disappears. When Akito wakes up, he discovers that he is bonded with KK. Together they try and unravel the mystery of the Vanishing and work to defeat the one behind the event, Hannya and his followers known as the Visitors by utilizing and mastering the powerful arts of Ethereal Weaving. Ethereal Weaving allows Akito to fight using the power of fire, water, and wind but it will not be the only thing that Akito has at his disposal.

Vistors can also be defeated with flair by causing enough damage until their core becomes exposed.
