Ben Bayliss4 minute read

Wandering around the derelict city in Ghostwire: Tokyo can feel lonely, especially when everything around you is either floating cats or evil visitors. Curious to know what you can change from the settings menu though? Here’s our Ghostwire: Tokyo menu deep dive, and if you’re looking for how the game fares with accessibility, you can read our accessibility review.

All images and information displayed below are from the launch version and could be subject to change.
