Ghostrunner

All in! Games have shared the latest trailer for Ghostrunner:

And here’s some more details and screenshots for the game:

After a cataclysmic event, the remnants of humanity dwell within Dharma Tower, a megastructure constructed as a temporary shelter. A century of conflict led to a brutal division of Dharma — the lower the floor, the lower the resident’s status. The enigmatic Keymaster maintains this imposed caste system, but the people have had enough. Ascend the tower as a Ghostrunner capable of blistering speed and deadly precision, and learn the truth behind the Keymaster’s reign.

Join the resistance known as the Climbers on their mission to cut through the Keymaster’s regime. Death awaits on each level of the tower, from the derelict industrial machinery of the Base to the sickening sheen of the Summit. Dodge oncoming bullets by dashing and wall-running, then slice through enemies with a single cut. Cybernetic implants push the limit even further with bullet-timelike mechanics to keep the cyber-warrior out of harm’s way.

Ghostrunner’s vertical setting enables One More Level Games to show off the beautiful duality of the cyberpunk genre. RTX-powered raytracing highlights lower Meru’s crumbling infrastructure with grungy neon signs and the apathetic hedonism of the clubs and bars on higher levels. An intense retrowave soundtrack by the acclaimed Daniel Deluxe maintains an energetic throughline to punctuate this dangerous journey to the top.

Ghostrunner (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.

In Ultra Instinct form, Goku has transcended to a different level of consciousness; he is calm and in harmony with his body, able to fight without thinking… he now fights on… instinct.
