Comment of the game producer

It’s a great honor to win Award for Excellence at the Japan Game Awards,

We developed “Ghostwire: Tokyo,” thinking joys of experiencing something out-of-the-ordinary in daily lives, which we cannot usually see, as one of concepts. We are very surprised at receiving such an out-of-the-ordinary news.

In addition, this work is a brand-new title, which shows we Tango Gameworks took the first step in a new genre.
We learned many mistakes and faced development discontinuity crises before the release. All that hard work paid off. Not only players enjoy this game but also, we won this award.

We Tango Gameworks will race ahead in creating memorable video games.
Thanks a lot.
