La PlayStation Experience this year took place from December 5 to 6 in San Francisco, with a conference of Sony which has lasted two hours and has been full of announcements, including pleasant surprises such as Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, Ace Combat 7 or a video where we saw for the first time a real gameplay of the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Of course, there has been room for other games also highly desired by fans of PlayStation 4As Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, from which a video was shown with a cinematic in which we could observe the incorporation of the possibility of choosing lines of dialogue, something absolutely unprecedented in the saga. As a curious contribution, note that Shawn Layden, President of Sony America, he wore a T-shirt on stage Crash Bandicoot, and boy, so much insistence and playing the distraction with this character may bring us a pleasant return in style.
The gameplay of Final Fantasy VII Remake has been totally spectacular and very enlightening about how the fighting will work in the game, where it seems that the turns have given way to direct action, a decision that surely will not excite the most die-hard fans, but that makes the game more accessible to the Big audience. Square Enix He also took the opportunity to announce that the classic 1997 version is already on sale for PlayStation 4, being the same game that saw the light in PC a couple of years ago, but with own additions for the console Sony, like trophies.
In the same way we already have available Fat princess adventures for PS4, a cooperative action game for four players, Nuclear Thrones (PS4, PS Vita and PC), Bastion (PS4, PS Vita), the series The Bit.Trip can also be downloaded for the same consoles, while Guns Up!, a free to play action and strategy game that will be at your fingertips starting next Wednesday, December 9 for PlayStation 4.
From the creators of the well-known IP of Borderlands we can wait Battleborn, which has also appeared in this PlayStation Experience and a new character has been announced, Toby, which will be exclusive to PlayStation 4 during the open beta phase, and also, those who play the beta on the open beta machine Sony, then they will have this character for free in the final version of the game.
Capcom keep putting all the meat on the spit with your next Street Fighter V, which will arrive on 16 February next year to PlayStation 4 y PC. The occasion has been used to introduce a new fighter, FANG, thus closing the list of the first 16 fighters that the game will contain, but this roster will be expanded during 2016 with the free arrival of Alex, Guile, Balrog, Ibuki, Juri y Urien.
The creative Tim Schafer was seen by the PlayStation Experience and took the stage to confirm that Day of the Tentacle Remastered It will go on sale in March of next year. He also announced the remastering of another classic of the disappeared Lucasarts, Full Throttle Remastered, which will reach both PlayStation 4 as PS Vita. And if it seemed little to us to have a future in sight Psychonauts 2, there was talk of a new adventure inspired by this universe under the title of Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin and intended for PlayStation VR.
The fans of the saga Yakuza, already a classic of SegaThey have found good and bad news, at least for Europeans. If we start with the good, we will tell you that Yakuza 5 will finally go on sale on December 8 for PlayStation 3. Regarding the bad, it touches directly on the launch of the eighties episode of Yakuza 0, which will reach both PlayStation 4 as PlayStation 3, but there is no confirmation for European territory, as we have seen on the Twitter of Sega: «We know that the saga Yakuza is loved by all its fans in Europe, but unfortunately at this time we cannot confirm a European premiere of Yakuza 0«.
The questioned The King of Fighters XIV presented new audio visual material, showing characters like Angel, Ralf, Billy Kane, Kula o King, although on a visual level it still seems very outdated and does not appeal to many followers of the classic sprites. The next Ratchet & Clank will be available on April 12 and the new game of Team Ninja it was also seen and was quite striking: we still do not have many details of Ni-Oh, but of course that mixture of Onimusha, Dark Souls and light touch musou we like.
It was the turn of the virtual reality glasses from Sony, PlayStation VR, in which the company seems to invest a great effort to offer exclusive titles, as well as compatibility with many others. We could contemplate Eagle Flight de Ubisoft, in which we can explore the skies of Paris with an eagle's eye, the striking The Modern Zombie Taxi Co. de Sony Santa Monica, in which we will have to act as a taxi driver in a zombie apocalypse nonsense, and G, an adventure in which we will get into the skin of a stone giant. And it is necessary to highlight an ad that will please those who lived the years of Dreamcast and have Rez as one of the best titles in the system: in this PlayStation Experience it was confirmed Rez Infinite for PlayStation VR, a remake of the classic from the latest console Sega -although we also saw it in PS2-, which will also feature the creator of the original, Tetsuya Mizuguchi.
Another batch of titles was also announced, such as Job Simulator, which will introduce us to the skin of different professionals, such as cooks or office workers, or 100ft Robot Golf, a game that combines giant robots with golf. But more interesting was the confirmation of the development of Ace Combat 7, a new installment of the saga of aerial combat of Namco who took his first steps in the old age PlayStation and that will be compatible with PlayStation VR -and hopefully the quality of the program will make us forget about that last one Assault Horizon-.
One of the biggest surprises of the PlayStation Experience was the announcement of Ni No Kuni II: The Revenant Kingdom, sequel to that irresistible jrpg that appeared in PlayStation 3 and that will be developed again by Level-5, with some of the key names from the original project, such as Akihiro Hino in his role as director and Joe hisaishi in charge of the soundtrack.
The truth is that it has been an event loaded with ads, which is good to improve the position of Sony with its PlayStation 4, even more, if possible. Perhaps the least interesting novelties reside in the playable proposals of the titles with which the Japanese attempt to attract the general public to PlayStation VR: We are pleased to know that there will be third-party companies offering support and compatibility for this peripheral, but we still miss a more attractive exclusive software, which really shows what this virtual reality headset can do.
