A new Ghostwire Tokyo update for PlayStation 5 and PC has been deployed by Tango Gameworks, and here’s what it does.
The new update adds support for the new Japanese Obon Commemoration by adding a new festive Jinbei costume and a new Photo mode emote. This new content will become available tomorrow at 11 AM ET / 3 PM UTC (August 4, 12 AM JST).
“Ghostwire: Tokyo is a game about spirits (vanished presences): rescuing them from evil, honoring them, and acknowledging and accepting their passing”, the developer writes. “Obon is a time to commemorate one's ancestors, whose spirits are believed to temporarily return to this world during this time of year.”
“Obon traditions vary throughout Japan, but the most common are holding summer festivals in school yards or parks, with everyone dancing the Bon Odori together to welcome the spirits of their ancestors. In some areas, an event called “Toro-nagashi” is also held, in which lanterns are floated down a river or into the sea to mourn the souls of the departed. Areas inspired by the event are featured in the game, and the Tokyo Bon dance is available as an emote in Photo Mode.”
In addition, this new update includes various bug fixes, including a PS5-specific fix that addresses an issue that caused a crash during Hyakki Yako.
You’ll find the official release notes for this update down below.
