GhostWire Tokyo creative director leaves Tango Gameworks
Ikumi Nakamura departs after nine years at the Evil Within studio
Ikumi Nakamura has left her role as creative director at Tango Gameworks.
Nakamura announced that she was leaving the Zenimax Media studio on Twitter.
She spent nine years at the developer, which was founded in 2010 by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami.
During that time, she worked on 2014 release The Evil Within, its 2017 sequel The Evil Within 2, and most recently GhostWire: Tokyo.
Nakamura rose to prominence in June following her passionate and warmly received GhostWire: Tokyo presentation during publisher Bethesda’s E3 press conference.
Prior to joining Tango, where she also served as art director, Nakamura worked as a concept artist on PlatinumGames’ Bayonetta and as an environment artist on Capcom’s Okami.
The debut trailer for the “spooky” GhostWire: Tokyo shows citizens in Japan’s capital city disappearing into thin air.
Players must investigate these disappearances and figure out the source of the evil that’s causing them.
According to Bethesda, the game will involve facing the occult, unravelling conspiracy theories and experiencing urban legends.
