Everything from Sony PlayStation’s TGS 2017 conference
A new Square Enix game, new Monster Hunter World footage and so much more.
Sony's PlayStation press conference at Tokyo Game Show is done for another year and what an exciting one it was. Not only did PlayStation show its Japan audience a bunch of games previously shown at E3 2017, like Hidden Agenda for PlayStation 4 via PlayLink, and Detroit: Become Human, but they also announced some fresh games like the brand new survival game from Square Enix, Left Alive.
In case you missed it, here's everything you need to know about Sony's TGS conference.
Left Alive revealed
A new survival game from Square Enix was revealed for the very first time during the PlayStation conference. While the trailer honestly doesn't give away much, except that it's coming in 2018 and there will be mechs involved in some capacity, it was still one of the most exciting reveals of the conference thanks to the cover artwork from Metal Gear series artist Yoji Shinkawa.
Left Alive's official website describes it as a survival action shooter.
People go absolutely batty over Shinkawa's art and we're no exception. We're just keen to see some more from Left Alive in the coming days.
Zone of the Enders 2 is getting a 4K spit shine and VR mode
Zone of the Enders has always been the criminally under-loved sibling to Kojima's Metal Gear series but a certain pocket of fans have been barracking for a sequel for years now. PlayStation announced at TGS that Zone of the Enders 2 would not only be getting a 4K update for PlayStation 4 and consoles but that it would also be getting a VR mode and surround audio to enhance the virtual-reality experience.
Detroit: Become Human gets a new Japanese trailer
Detroit: Become Human, the Cagey game about a robotic revolution, has received mixed reactions since its announcement. We're interested to see how it's received in Japan.
Monster Hunter World gets a worldwide release date
Monster Hunter World will release 26 January 2018, with no official release date for the PC yet. That's honestly sooner than we expected. To get you pumped for some serious monster huntin' action, Capcom also revealed a brand new trailer for Monster Hunter World.
Earth Defense Force 5 release date and trailer
EDF 5 is coming 7 December, and to celebrate the annihilation of insects, a new trailer was also released.
Final Fantasy IX is available on PS4 now (and at a discount)
Reports that Final Fantasy IX for PS4 would be announced at TGS were true. However, it was still a nice surprise to find out it would be available immediately. You can pick it up on the PlayStation Store for $31.95, but it is currently discounted at $25.56.
Noctis coming to Dissidia NT
In some not-so-surprising news, Noctis is coming to the Final Fantasy fighter Dissidia NT. Square Enix has been hard at work putting the FFXV boys in food commercials, mobile games and movies, so it'd be a bit of a kick in the teeth if they didn't get an invite to Dissidia.
We also got a nice new trailer to celebrate his arrival.
Shadow of the Colossus gets a new trailer, still no release date
The beautiful beast-felling classic is looking absolutely gorgeous on Sony's latest consoles. Sadly, we still don't have a confirmed release date.
Hidden Agenda for PlayLink and Bravo Team for VR get Japanese trailers
Japan got its very own trailer for the upcoming PlayLink thriller Hidden Agenda.
Same goes for Supermassive's PSVR exclusive Bravo Team. Unfortunately, there's nothing new here for Western audiences.
Dragon's Crown Pro coming to the PS4
The surprisingly deep side-scrolling RPG with very questionable character designs is coming to PlayStation 4. We only have confirmation on a Japanese release date so far, 25 January 2018, but we'll report on any further announcements.
