Meet Hannya, Ghostwire Tokyo’s Masked Villain

Ghostwire: Tokyo’s PlayStation Showcase trailer highlights the occultist Hannya


We haven’t seen much of Ghostwire: Tokyo since it was delayed earlier this summer due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, Bethesda and developer Tango Gameworks used today’s PlayStation Showcase to show off what we can expect from the spooky supernatural action game when it launches next spring.

The trailer focuses on the game’s antagonist, an occultist named Hannya. Now, I’m not a betting man, but it seems likely this masked figure is responsible for 99% of Tokyo’s population vanishing into thin air along with all the nightmarish demons that now stalk the metropolis’ abandoned streets. In addition to Hannya, we also see more of Ghostwire Tokyo’s protagonist Akito as he uses his powers to battle an assortment of creatures.

You can watch the latest trailer for the game below:

Ghostwire: Tokyo – Gameplay Reveal Trailer | PS5

First announced at E3 2019, Ghostwire: Tokyo is the latest release from The Evil Within developer Tango Gameworks. And, as you can tell from the trailer above, it’s certainly creepy. However, unlike the studio’s previous claim to fame, Ghostwire puts an emphasis on action and adventure over straight-up horror. With combat the mixes martial arts and mystical powers, it looks like it’ll be quite the experience when it launches on PS5 and PC next year.

Be sure to stay tuned to Hey Poor Player for more details on the game as they become available.

So, what do you think of the newest trailer? Am I the only one getting Maken X meets Deadly Premonition vibes from what we’ve seen so far? I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that’s probably just me. Sound off in the comments and let us know.
