Overnight, PlayStation presented at the Tokyo Games Show, releasing a few new trailers from some already announced games, but some unannounced ones too. Lots of cool announcements game out of it, which we’ve done our best to summarise below.
Project Awakening was one of the newly announced games. The medieval-fantasy combat game is developed by CyGames. The cinematic trailer below, in which a knight attempts to slay a dragon, suggests a melding of Dark Souls and Monster Hunter-like gameplay.
The second new game to be announced was Judge’s Eyes, the new title from the Yakuza team, that seems to follow a former lawyer who must revisit his past after a string of gruesome murder. In addition to the story trailer below, 4 minutes of gameplay footage was released.
Kingdom Hearts III
With its January 29th release date getting nearer by the day, Square showed the characters of Big Hero 6 in action. The accompanying song is almost certainly gonna give you goosebumps.
They also announced the Kingdom Hearts III VR Experience, which will be a free, standalone release available this Holiday season. According to a post over on the PlayStation Blog, the VR experience will allow fans of the series to “relive some of their favourite memories from the storied franchise with this special, immersive experience.” It will be an approximately 10-minute long interactive video, but extra content will be unlocked for it as you “keep playing.” It looks like it will be a good way to catch up on the story if you’ve missed it, or remind yourself if it’s been a while.
You’d almost forgotten about Sony Bend’s Days Gone hadn’t you? The zombie action-adventure, long in the works, is still due to be released on the busiest day of next year, February 22nd. They released a new trailer at TGS, but there’s not much we can garner from it that we didn’t already know.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
The samurai action-RPG, developed by From Software who invented the Souls-like genre, is shaping up to be one of the most hotly anticipated games of next year. We have to wait until March 22nd, and in the meantime, they’ve whet our appetite with the new trailer, which includes some new nasty looking bosses.
A new survival shooter was announced for the PlayStation 4, to be released in 2019. It’s the result of a collaboration between Toshifumi Nabeshima, Yoji Shinkawa and Takayuki Yanase who have worked on Armoured Core, Metal Gear and Xenoblade Chronicles X respectively. It promises a “dark and gritty world” but you be the judge of that by checking out the trailer below.
