This one feels like it's been 'on the way' to Xbox forever, doesn't it? Ever since we saw the Xbox Series X|S logo plastered on Bethesda's beautiful Ghostwire: Tokyo office artwork we've been eagerly anticipating the game's arrival on Xbox Game Pass. Well, more than a year after Ghostwire: Tokyo's PS5 launch, Tango Gameworks' spooky adventure is almost here for us Xbox players.
And you know what - we're rather excited for its upcoming Game Pass release. Sure, the team's open world spookfest didn't set the PlayStation world on fire back in March 2022 (at least critically, although user scores seem very positive), but Xbox is crying out for more Japanese titles either way, especially ones that can appeal to a Western audience like Ghostwire: Tokyo can.
Something about Ghostwire's combination of Western gameplay sensibilities with a very authentically Japanese open world Tokyo setting just feels right for an Xbox title coming from Japan. Microsoft has worked on growing its reach over there for years now, and although the fantastic Hi-Fi RUSH arrived in January from the same Japanese developer, you'd easily be mistaken for thinking that it came from a Western team. Ghostwire: Tokyo certainly doesn't have that vibe at all.
