Having launched in March 2022 with timed PlayStation exclusivity, Tango Gameworks’ first-person karate-meets-magic title Ghostwire: Tokyo follows 22-year-old Japanese student Akito Izuki as he wakes up in a devastated, empty Tokyo following a fatal accident. Forcibly inhabited by the spirit of the deceased “KK,” a former police detective with magical combat powers, Akito takes on a frightening spirit invasion commanded by the mysterious cult leader Hannya as he struggles to rescue his sister from the latter’s clutches with KK’s help.
Ghostwire: Tokyo was announced to be coming to Xbox following Microsoft’s acquisition of ZeniMax Media, though the release window was not revealed until much later. Microsoft made good on its promise this year following the end of the exclusivity period, with the game launching on Xbox Series X|S as well as Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming (allowing Xbox One gamers to play the title as well) in April. If you’re wondering whether or not to pick it up, check out our 8.5/10 review of the title where we found it “a solid foundation for what is hopefully the start of a beautiful franchise.”
