This morning was Sony’s third annual Playstation Experience and it was positively packed with with trailers and announcements. I’ll skip the pleasantries and move on to the good stuff, for brevity’s sake.
First off, it looks like we’ll be getting a sequel to 2013’s apocalyptic smash hit The Last of Us.
It’s been a few years since we’ve seen Joel and Ellie, but it looks like they’ve been up to some bloody business and doing whatever they can to survive in this somber trailer. The details are limited and cryptic, but it certainly paints a picture of an action packed revenge tale in the same dangerous world we have come to know from the first game.
Next we have the next entry from arcade pioneer Eugene Jarvis.
Nex Machina looks to be fast paced top down shooters in the style of Levy’s previous works. The trailer balances colourful environments with some concerning voyeuristic robots, making me curious if this will be the same sort of bullet fest like SmashTV or Resogun, or something a bit more indepth. Nah, I’m kidding, looks like more bright bullets and little story.
For fans of Studio Ghibli and adorable RPGs, Ni No Kuni is getting a sequel as well.
Ni No Kuni II Revenant Kingdom will see the fox-eared Evan as he and his cohorts as they clash with mad rulers and science gone amok in their efforts to create a new kingdom. It looks very very pretty.
Fans of ship combat will be getting some something nice with Dreadnought.
Dreadnought will be a free-to-play spaceship shooter game with co-operative elements from Grey Box, Six Foot, and YAEGER. It boasts 50 ships, 5 classes and stunning visuals.
Finally, Sony is getting back to it’s roots and reviving an old mascot.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a remake of the original Crash trilogy, brought to the new generation of consoles.
Crash isn’t the only game getting the remaster treatment. Expect remasters of Parappa the Rappa, Patapon, LocoRoco, and even the original Yakuza in the upcoming Yakuza Kiwami.
Other announcements include The Wipeout Omega Collection, bringing elements of previous Wipeout games to the PS4, the long awaited Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, and a holiday themed event in Destiny titled The Dawning running from December 13th through January 3rd, exclusive to players with the Rise of Iron content.
