H2 Interactive will release Ghostrunner for PlayStation 4 and Switch both physically and digitally in Japan on January 28, 2021 for 4,950 yen, listings at retailers such as Amazon Japan and Rakuten confirm.
Ghostrunner launched digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store on October 27, and is coming to Switch in November. In Japan, however, Ghostrunner is currently only available on Xbox One and PC.
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions of Ghostrunner are also planned for release in 2021. Users who own Ghostrunner on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will receive a free upgrade to their next-generation counterparts. (The box art for the Japanese physical edition on PlayStation 4 also indicates this.)
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Ghostrunner is a hardcore first-person perspective slasher packed with lightning-fast action, set in a grim, cyberpunk megastructure. Climb Dharma Tower, humanity’s last shelter, after a world-ending cataclysm. Make your way up from the bottom to the top, confront the tyrannical Keymaster, and take your revenge.
The streets of this tower city are full of violence. Mara the Keymaster rules with an iron fist and little regard for human life.
As resources diminish, the strong prey on the weak and chaos threatens to consume what little order remains. The decisive last stand is coming. A final attempt to set things right before mankind goes over the edge of extinction.
As the most advanced blade fighter ever created, you’re always outnumbered but never outclassed. Slice your enemies with a monomolecular katana, dodge bullets with your superhuman reflexes, and employ a variety of specialized techniques to
One-hit one-kill mechanics make combat fast and intense. Use your superior mobility (and frequent checkpoints!) to engage in a never-ending dance with death fearlessly.
Ghostrunner offers a unique single-player experience: fast-paced, violent combat, and an original setting that blends science fiction with post-apocalyptic themes. It tells the story of a world that has already ended and its inhabitants who fight to survive.
