Watch the SCE Japan 2015 press conference here

New game announcements live from Tokyo, starting at 8.00am BST on 15 September

Heads up folks. Tomorrow morning at 8.00am BST/9.00am CEST our colleagues at SCE Japan are hosting a press conference ahead of the annual Tokyo Game Show. While we’ll stress that the briefing is primarily aimed at a Japanese audience and not everything featured is guaranteed to make it to European shores, there will be enough on show to make it worth being a little late for work/school ;)

You can watch an English translation of the stream right here in this blog post, so set your alarms/bookmarks/automated espresso machines now. Enjoy!

:) Can’t wait KH3 please.

So going to except many Vita release since the Niche market supports the Vita very well. Although not all games will see a western release. Looking forward to it.

2.1

Praise Shu for region-free Vitas, and the internet for always wanting to help non-natives play Japan-only games.

3

Afrika 2 for Morpheus and a new Jumping Flash game please?

3.1

Thumbs up for the Jumping Flash request.

I’ll watch it later on as i have a 5am shift tomorrow morning unfortunately.

TGS; this is my big conference of the year. Most of the games I get hyped for happen here. Need to get back to learning Japanese!

please tell me the rumours are true that PS4 is getting PS1 and PS2 classics on PS4?

6.1

Would love this if it’s true. Assuming it’s a proper emulator and not PS now

Gravity Rush 2
Ni no Kuni 2
Danganronpa 3
Persona 5
The Last Guardian
Shenmue 1+2 HD
Boku no Natsuyasumi 5
Doko Demo Issho
Dragon Quest XI

I expect to see them all Sony. Don’t let me down!

Please a new Red Dead. Please!!!

8.1

this is a japanese event so unless Rockstar decide to move to Japan its not happening.

8.2

Yea, San Diego did RDR so if it was going to be any annual conference I’d wager E3, though Rockstar would be more likely to do a Bethesda-style event, or something totally independent.

I’m sure my boss will understand my absence. I have Fred’s approval after all.

9.1

It’s an executive order ;)

Gravity Rush 2 for PS4 please

I wish they still created the arcade game street fighter 2

LONG LIVE THE VITA!!!

Also Persona 5.

I hope the people of Japan get plenty of announcements. I feel the current gen has been slightly too western for their liking and the better the ps4 does in Japan the better off we all are.

Persona 5 please :)

13.1

I feel like that’s a strategic thing. Japan gets more Vita games than the rest of the world because the social paradigm is more centred around being out and about, so mobile and handheld gaming is way bigger there than console gaming (generically speaking). Though don’t disagree that they’ve had a bad rap.

It would be nice if Dragon’s Dogma Online was released in the west as its on PS4 in Japan but then we didn’t receive Dragon’s Dogma Quest on vita or even the vita Monster Hunter Frontier G either.

A thing I find interesting about Japan vs the west is in Japan the PS2 was retired in 2012 and even as recent as last year they were still selling UMD games for PSP (that’s releases also on vita). In the west you have people moaning that games are still being made for the PS3. Another difference is that people in Japan can play while out and about whereas where I live I never take out my vita or 3ds to play on public transport as I would probably be robbed (I had my reading glasses stolen on a recent excursion into Liverpool)

ps2 games on ps4? ^^

And there I was this morning thinking that Tuesday being my day off this week was a strange one. The PlayStation Gods have done well…

Persona 5 2015 rls date pls!

Fix the price for Curses N Chaos, darnit!

I’d like to see:

The Last Guardian
Kingdom Hearts 3
Final Fantasy 15
World of Final Fantasy
Persona 5
Star Ocean 5
The Last Guardian
Dragon Quest XI
Ni no Kuni 2
Gravity Rush 2
Deep Down

I think the Japanese market is only of niche interest to a few people now, on home consoles it’s far from the industry leader it was in the PS2 era. Still, hoping to hear some news about Last Guardian, as well as maybe a release date for the console ports of Tekken 7.

19.1

Have you been living under a rock? Demand for Japanese games is booming.

Gravity Rush and Ni no Kuni sequels are all I care for now that Last guardian and FF7remake have been announced. Would love to see more quality JRPG’s and Japanese games in general.

21

Yakuza, Yakuza, Yakuza… and what Acquiescence said in the 7th post.

Not sure I want to watch. I just know there will be a couple of gems that will be announced that never come to the west…

I was hoping this would land us another japanese games discount on PSN. I know there was one 2 or 3 months ago but again would be nice. Maybe with less games but bigger discounts this time, to change it up.

24

I will probably see psvita stuf that will never come here but will further inspire me to continue studing japanes

Since the NieR sequel is coming for the PS4, it would be nice if the first NieR is released for the PS4 too. Wouldn’t mind Ni no Kuni for the PS4 either.

I really hope the PS1/PS2 rumor for the PS4 is true, so it’s possible to play games like Suikoden III on it. And that we get more PS2 games on the Playstation Store, like Dragon Quest 8, Muasashi: Samurai Legend and Tenchu 3 just to mention something.

And I’m still waiting for us to get more US PS1 imports here on the European Playstation Store, it been 4 years now. Games like Brave Fencer Musashi, Chrono Cross, Legend of Mana, Threads of Fate and Xenogears.

Please lets have a proper “Elite”-controller Sony or I will by Microsofts (oops, did I really say that?!).

The problem with the Microsoft Elite controller is it’s paired to a Microsoft console….

I have been saying for year the industry needs a super premium controller. Imagine an Apple style company that made quality (and possibly expensive) controllers.
I could pick the stick tension and the trigger button style as well as overall size…

KING OF FIGHTERS XIV! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About time!

DragonQuest Builders is the one I’ve been looking forward to. Hope it pans out the way it seems to be going :)

Compared to E3 show TGS yet again seems so much better.

And yet it was somehow very enjoyable and at the same time very dissapointing. Gravity Rush 2 being PS4 exclusive is very big slap… even more when it doesn’t really feel as using potential of PS4.

The biggest games on this show for me were: Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna (earlier on Project Setsuna) and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. Those 2 games stole the entire show.

Star Ocean 5… looks great… but we saw too litte.
SaGa Scarlet Graces (previously SaGa 2015) showed only arts… things like this shouldn’t happen.

Danganronpa 3 being on PSV and PS4 is nice thing.

Exist Archive seems very nice…

So yeah… it was very good show… and somehow still it was somewhat disapointing.

Aww, no talk about PS2 BC.

But I do hope Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza 6 are released here in the west for the PS4.

31

I’ve heard that ALL regions will get firmware updates to switch functionality of the X and O buttons to the proper East Asian way.

Mwahahahaha !!

Yeah it does get confusing playing a JPN import and getting used to those controls then switching to a western game.

Playing the JPN version of Kaizoku Musou 2 on the vita seems to use x as opposed to the circle it shows to use to progress through text etc bit like a brain scramble… listening to Meat Beat Manifesto Helter Skelter over and over

I love how in the middle of Yakuza Kiwami nestled between the violence and more violence there’s scantily clad women fighting and a man wearing a dress. This alone makes me want every Yakuza game (meaning I won’t be scouring the boot for old PS2 copies. On a positive note at least the head of Sega wasn’t wearing his Miami Vice attire

For Honour Oni Hero seems interesting as I like Way of The Samurai games even when they make me go uhhhh and cringe as the mini-games in 4 did.

Would be excited for One Piece and Gundam except I really don’t like 1 on 1 fighting games….killing 1,000’s of NPC’s as Japanese, Chinese, Gundam or OPP warriors is more my kind of fighting games

Star Ocean yep yep will have to have that as for SaGa Scarlet Grace will wait for more details

but Nioh….you would think I would have o.d. on the mindless hack & slash but no I must have this. I hope the demon / oni woman at the end is a playable character. As it’s KT it will most likely get a western release if not it...

KINGDOM HEARTS AND GRAVITY RUSH 2!

So excited for Gravity rush. Was kinda hoping for RE7 too, and the Umbrella thing didn’t do it for me :(

35

Hhhhh
