Sony’s 2017 Tokyo Game Show Announcements
Earlier this morning, Sony presented some of its newest gaming announcements at the Tokyo Game Show. There have been a number of remakes and trailers released, showing what PlayStation owners can look forward to!
To start off, Hideo Kojima announced that his cryptic new game, Death Stranding, is expected to release in 2018. Specifically, Kojima announced “it will be out before the year in which Akira is set,” referencing the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Akira itself is set in 2019. Kojima also announced that Death Stranding will have an online multiplayer mode, one that’s “a different kind of online play than anything we’ve seen before.”
Square Enix also announced a new game called Left Alive. The game, directed by Armored Core director Toshifumi Nabeshima, is described as a “brand new survival action shooter set in a dark and gritty world.” Here’s the trailer, which announces that Left Alive will be released for PS4 in 2018.
Monster Hunter World also got a release date, confirmed to come out on January 26, 2018. There’s also going to be a beautiful Monster Hunter-themed PS4 Pro released alongside the game. Unfortunately, so far it looks like the reskinned console will only be available in Japan for now.
The most exciting segment for the conference was a new trailer for the Shadow of the Colossus remake, which shows some beautiful clips of gameplay.
Today, Final Fantasy IX was released for PS4, including new features like a high speed mode, and the option to turn off random encounters.
An update of the PS3/PS Vita game Dragon’s Crown will also be released for PS4, including 4K support. Though details of a worldwide release haven’t come out, the game will be released in Japan on January 25.
Finally, mobile game sensation Neko Atsume will be available for PSVR in 2018. There’s not a ton of information about how this will work, but the developer, Hit Point, released a logo, which seems to hint at players being at the cats’ eye level; this is what VR was made for.
