When it was announced with a spooky trailer, GhostWire: Tokyo made quite the splash. It ended up not being exactly what people expected it to be, but it also gained notoriety for introducing the world stage to Ikumi Nakamura. She was the lead on the game and introduced it at that year’s E3. She’s since left Tango, and people have wondered where she would end up landing. As it turns out, she’s looking to break out on her own.

In a lengthy documentary on the YouTube channel Cutscenes, she spoke about her reasoning for departing Tango due to her poor health at the time, as well as working at Capcom before that (she began as an artist on Okami). After leaving the studio she looked at various different offers, before deciding to start her own Independent studio. You can check out the full documentary below.

As of now it seems the studio has no name, at least publicly, and there’s no word on what Nakamura is planning. Since her last projects have been horror-oriented, it’s probably not too bad a bet to think this will be similar. We’ll wait for what she does next.
