Former “Ghostwire: Tokyo” Creative Director Sets Up New Studio INVISIBLE [Trailer]
Ikumi Nakamuraformer creative director of Tango Gameworks for the next Ghostwire: Tokyo, founded a new studio called UNSEEN. Called a “borderless and mysterious game development studio,” Nakamura says the new studio will develop games that focus on mystery, horror, sci-fi, and the supernatural.
In an interview with IGN, Nakamura said the studio will focus on an international team, with the Tokyo studio serving as a central hub. His vision for UNSEEN is to “transcend various mediums beyond the realm of video games”.
UNSEEN is already working on a new title, which Nakamura says leans towards horror. “I love mystery, I love horror movies, I love zombies, and supernatural and sci-fi – I find those genres fascinating, and I’m good at them, so I want to keep working on games related to these topics.”
Nakamura had started at Tango Gameworks as an artist on The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2 before embarking on the role of creative director for Ghostwire: Tokyo. This news also comes after Nakamura joined Kaizen Gameworks (whose current game paradise killer will be heading to PlayStation and Xbox later this month) as creative director of their next game.
Meanwhile, Ghostwire: Tokyo should come out on March 25 for PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam.
