While the Tokyo Game Show doesn’t officially begin until tomorrow (when we’ll hopefully hear more details about Ace Attorney 6), Sony held its TGS 2015 press conference yesterday and showed many great games.
Like with Gamescom, I won’t cover everything. Instead, I’ll just discuss my favorite announcements from Sony’s TGS conference. However, I’ve embedded the entire press conference below for you to watch if you missed it live.
The Bloodborne expansion interests me, but since I haven’t played Bloodborne yet, I don’t have much to say about it. It sure looks cool, though.
Instead, let’s talk about Nioh. Nioh, originally announced for the PS3 and finally resurrected, looks really cool and I want to learn more about it. So far, only a few details have been revealed. And why does the samurai look like Geralt of Rivia?
After Square Enix’s stellar E3 conference, I was excited to see their offerings… and they delivered! First up was the chibi turn-based RPG, World of Final Fantasy, which looks just as cute at it did at E3.
Star Ocean V, which we’ve discussed before, continues to look like an excellent space opera RPG. They also confirmed that it will be accessible to series newcomers. I might still try to play a Star Ocean game before it comes out, but if I don’t get to it, I’m pleased I can start there.
And while I’m still back playing the Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix, I have to give special mention to the gloriously-titled new compilation, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Just let that name sink in.
It includes a remastered version of Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (the story from Kingdom Hearts χ), and a new episode called Kingdom Hearts: 0.2 Birth By Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage. I am not making this up.
Since I intend to play the entire Kingdom Hearts series, this interests me… although I sincerely hope Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is still receiving the full Western release that was promised at E3.
Speaking of E3 announcements, remember Project Setsuna, the new RPG coming from Square Enix? A short trailer was displayed, showing off gameplay for the first time, with details revealed later. It’s definitely one I’ll keep an eye on.
Moving away from Square Enix, while Vanillaware revealed very little about its new game 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, the trailer was enough to catch my attention. I’m not entirely sure what sort of game it is, but I’m interested in learning more.
I have nothing to say about Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps, so let’s just ignore that and move on to a game announced recently: Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky.
They also announced a new Danganronpa game. I want this series. It sounds like Ace Attorney meets The Hunger Games. Seriously, the Danganronpa series is one of my primary reason for wanting a PS Vita.
So there you have it, my biggest takeaways from Sony’s 2015 TGS press conference. Which titles did you most enjoy seeing, and what are you looking forward to from the rest of this year’s Tokyo Game Show?---
