Tokyo Game Show Sony Presentation Announcements

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Sony kicked off the this year's Tokyo Game Show with a presentation from the Japanese wing of Sony Computer Entertainment. During this presentation was many announcements for games that will be released on Playstation in Japan. None of the following games have been confirmed for western regions, but a region-free console means that you can always import them if you don't want to wait and see.

First, New Hot Shots Golf was announced for the Playstation 4 and is due to be released next year. Players can create their own characters and jump into an open world that is filled with other players. Here you can create your own Hot Shots Golf life. There's a surprisingly little amount of golf in the game's trailer below.

Next was SEGA's announcement of Yakuza: Kiwami, a project that celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Yakuza franchise by remaking the very first Yakuza title. Despite its critical acclaim, SEGA wasn't pleased with the quality of the Playstation 2 release so they have decided to bring the game to life using the latest technology. Not only will the game have much improved graphics and gameplay, there will also be new additional scenarios. Yakuza: Kiwami will be released on January 21st, 2016 for ¥6,490 on Playstation 3 and Playstation 4.

SEGA isn't just using Yakuza: Kiwami to celebrate the franchise's tenth anniversary though; Yakuza 6 was also announced. Details are few and far between right now, but more is promised when TGS begins properly on Thursday. The game will be released on Playstation 4 in fall 2016. Players who purchase Yakuza: Kiwami will gain access to an exclusive demo for Yakuza 6.

SNK Playmore was next with The King of Fighters XIV. The fighter will be coming to Playstation 4 in 2016, but little else is known.

Bandai Namco took to the stage to announce One Piece: Burning Blood for the Playstation 4 and Vita. Developed by Spike Chunsoft, the fighting title focuses specifically on the battle aspect of the franchise. Characters with Devil Fruit abilities will have a prominent role to play.

Their second announcement was Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS Force. Not just a port of the arcade version of the game, this title has been developed specifically for Vita. Players may even recognise suits from the Gundam Reconguista in G and Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans TV series.

KOEI Tecmo took to the stage to reveal a couple of new titles, the first of which was Omega Force's Toukiden 2. The "hunting action" game will feature a dynamic and realistic open world. It will be coming to Playstation 4, Playstation 3 and Vita in 2016.

In news that may surprise some players, their second title was Nioh. Originally announced for Playstation 3 (as Ni-Oh) back in 2005, the game is now coming exclusively to Playstation 4 in 2016. Those that like a game to have a soul-crushing difficulty will be pleased as KOEI promised that the game will be very difficult to clear on the first try.

In one of the briefest trailers to be shown during the presentation, SEGA revealed that Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Arcade would be coming to the Playstation 4. The game was released in arcades back in 2010 and is a port of the 2009 PSP title Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA. The new version of the music title will be released in 2016.

Atlus weren't far behind. They announced VanillaWare's 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim for the Playstation 4 and Vita. The only details that are available for the game are those that you can glean from the trailer. Take a look:

Spike Chunsoft took to the stage to announce New Danganronpa V3: Minna no Koroshiai Shin Gakki. The title will be coming to both Playstation 4 and Vita. Despite there being two of the company's representatives on the stage, you'll need to watch the trailer if you want to know anything more about the title. The good news is that more information is promised soon.

As previously mentioned, all of these titles are currently exclusive to Japan and Asia. We'll be sure to let you know if any of them are ever confirmed for western regions.

So much for pathos...
