Game announcements at the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3, can be pretty lame, but a hidden gem comes along the way to make the event interesting.
Ikumi Nakamura, creative director of the recently announced Bethesda and Tango Gameworks title “GhostWire: Tokyo,” took the hearts of many people during the event in Los Angeles, as well as viewers at home.
From the moment she was introduced by Shinji Mikami, Nakamura, who previously worked on the “The Evil Within” franchise, immediately made the stage her own.
She kept her cheerfulness from start to finish, and her movements don’t look awkward at all.

Unless Nintendo show something that’s completely out of left field that catches us all by surprise, I think it’s safe to say that Ikumi Nakamura won E3 this year.— Anthony @7 Page Muda (@DarkMega_EXE) June 10, 2019
While Nakamura was very well liked in E3, Keanu Reeves stole the whole show.
