Tango Gameworks has recently revealed the upcoming Ghostwire Tokyo Obon 2022 update details.

Ghostwire Tokyo Obon 2022 Update Celebrates Bon Odori

Obon is a Japanese event that is part of the tradition in the country as it is a time to commemorate one’s ancestors whose spirits are believed to temporarily return to this world during this time of the year. The traditions behind Obon are different throughout Japan, but the usual ones are holding summer festivals in school yards or parks with everyone dancing the Bon Odori to welcome the spirits of their ancestors.

Release Schedule

Ghostwire Tokyo will be having their own Bon Odori celebration with an all-new Obon costume and new Photo Mode this coming Wednesday, August 3, 2022 at 11 AM ET/ 3 PM UTC.
