Sony has issued a new State of Play focused especially on titles developed in Japan.
Below are a summary with everything that has been presented in it, along with the trailers of all games. Of course, we warn you that, despite being interesting titles and more than one surprise, have not made an act of presence in it the most anticipated Japanese titles… so nothing of Final Fantasy XVI, from Street Fighter 6 or the second Part of the Final Fantasy Remake VII.
The State of Play has begun with the announcement of a new Capcom IP called Exoprimal. Although it has dinos, it is not a dino crisis; It is a multiplayer title with 5V5 combat combats set in a futuristic world. We will control soldiers who use exotracy and who will face waves of dinosaurs when the game goes on sale next year:
The following has been a new trailer of Ghostwire: Tokyo, the new game of Gameworks tango distributed by Bethesda, which will be put on sale at the end of this month:
After that we have been able to see a brief trailer by Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, the spin-off of chaos, from which it has also been confirmed, as it had been filtered hours before, the availability of a demo in the PlayStation Store. The final version of the game will be put on sale next week, on March 18:
From Square Enix itself, it was also Forspoken, a title developed by Luminous Productions from which we have been able to see new Gameplay. The game, as you already know, delayed a couple of days ago, initially planned for May and that will now be produced on October 11, 2022.
The next game shown has been Gundam Evolution, expected for this same year. Before your launch there will be, in spring, a network test that will allow us to test the game.
Konami has not shown new games per se, but a new compilation of classics, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection. It includes thirteen classic titles of 8 and 16 bits, with new modes, quality of life and a section with artworks and sketches.
Gigabash is a fighting game with Kaijus. It will be placed on sale in 2022:
And Bandai Namco has announced Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R, a remake of the CyberConnect2 fighting game originally published for PlayStation 3 in 2013. It will arrive at autumn priests, fifty characters, graphic improvements and much more.
We have also been able to see a little more Trek to Yomi, the spectacular action game inspired by the old Samurai movies and in the aesthetics of the mythical director Akira Kurosawa:
Perhaps the biggest surprise has been the announcement of Ascension, a free expansion for RURNAL that will add a cooperative mode and the new tower of Sisyphus. As we said, it is free and will be available as of March 22.
And to close the State of Play, Square Enix has presented two new projects. The first is The Diofield Chronicle, a tactical RPG developed by launching Inc. that will be published in 2022:
The second is the return of a classic franchise, Valkyrie Profile. The new delivery, Valkyrie Elysium, will be published this year, but it will change the style of play for something closest to Hack ‘n slash:
And this has been all at an event that, as planned, has focused mainly on titles developed in Japan. What do you think? Something you have pointed out in your desired list?
