This morning, PlayStation hosted the first State of Play for 2022 which had its share of reveals and updates for games predominantly out of Japan but also across the globe.
Opening with a brand-new multiplayer PvE game from Capcom, and closing with an interesting-looking new action game from Square Enix, the presentation featured a bit of everything.
Here’s a rundown of everything announced and shown off:
A brand-new announcement of a bonkers-looking multiplayer dinosaur battling game that looks to throw thousands of prehistoric predators at a squad of players in fancy exosuits. Coming to PS4 and PS5 2023.
The long-rumoured Returnal DLC is on its way. A survival mode with a tower climb with procedurally-generated challenges and new weapons and enemies to contend with. There’s also the promise of answers to untold lore and some freaky, freaky bosses. Also includes campaign co-op! Coming very soon on March 22 with update 3.0
This wouldn’t be a State of Play without a Bethesda title that’s literally on the verge of release getting a bunch of airtime, now would it? This one’s out on PS4 and PS5 on March 25, naturally.
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin
Another game right about to release, but we get a brand-new demo on the PlayStation Store today! Coming March 18 on PS4 and PS5.
Another look at the recently-delayed open world action game from Square Enix’s Luminous Studios. This look shows off a fearsome dragon, a bunch of gorgeous-looking fighting and acrobatic traversal. Freya can even skate across water on a magical icy hoverboard from the looks. The new date for this one is October 11, 2022.
A fast-paced multiplayer shooter coming to PS4 and PS5 later this year. It’s got exactly what you would expect in a modern online FPS with small teams facing off in a variety of maps using mobile suits with their own unique abilities.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection
A brand-new collection of 13 classic Turtles titles from across arcades, NES, SNES, SEGA Mega Drive and the Game Boy including the all-important Turtles in Time. Coming 2022 to PS4 and PS5.
A neat-looking kaiju brawler coming to PS4 and PS5 later this year.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle R
A newly-remastered JoJo fighting game is on the way! JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle R coming to PS4 and PS5 in 2022 with over 50 playable characters.
Trek to Yomi
A new look at the brutal and beautiful samurai action game with a cinematic black-and-white aesthetic and plenty of interesting spiritual phenomena. This one’s still on track to release this year on PS4 and PS5.
The DioField Chronicle
A brand-new strategy RPG title from Square Enix that looks oddly identical in narrative to the recent Switch exclusive Triangle Strategy, only with proper 3D visuals and a war table to create large-scale plays on. Coming to PS4 and PS5 in 2022.
A third-person action game from Square Enix set in the Valkyrie Profile universe. Some lovely psuedo cel-shaded visuals on show. Coming to PS4 and PS5 in 2022.
