Play OverviewPlay Overview

Ghostwire Tokyo is set in Japan where the population has vanished, and supernatural creatures roam the streets. You explore this open world on a mission to find out what happened and to save your ill sister. To do this you develop an arsenal of elemental abilities and work to unravel the truth behind the disappearances.

Deadly supernatural forces and dangerous occultists control the city and have vanished the people who lived there. You play as Akito, who was saved from the cataclysm by a spirit named KK who now demands you join him on his quest for vengeance.

As you progress and explore the richly rendered city there are high-energy encounters with dark spectral enemies alongside the more sedate ways to help the city folk's spirits. In return for your assistance, you can upgrade your special powers and ghost-hunting abilities. Use your ethereal abilities to ascend to the top of Tokyo's skyline. Soar over the streets to discover new missions or even get the drop on your enemies.

The result is a game as much about exploration and tangents as its save-the-world meta-narrative. For those happy to putter around the side missions there's an enthralling world to slowly explore. From ultra-modern cityscape to traditional temples and narrow alleyways, you discover a hauntingly beautiful city teeming with strangeness and spirits.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 12 for moderate violence, use of bad language and scenes of moderate horror that younger players may find disturbing. Violence in the game is generally non-realistic in nature. Human-like characters are subjected to magical attacks, which cause them to be knocked backwards and then fall in a ragdoll motion when defeated. In one scene, a character is restrained by magical chains and a man plunges his arm through the restrained character's body. There is no blood or gore and the character survives because of the fantastical supernatural context. In another scene, a character appears to strangle himself and push himself up against a car, when he is possessed by a spirit. A strong sense of threat and dread is present throughout the game. Some spirits can be intimidating and there are suspenseful and creepy scenes accompanied by a scary atmosphere. There is the use of bad language, including '*!@?*', '*!@?*', '*!@?*' and '*!@?*'.
