Sony revealed quite a bit at its PlayStation Experience keynote over the weekend. So much in fact that it's probably best to take it all in at once, in a sensory overload of awesome. We're talking new looks and announcements for the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Uncharted 4, Street Fighter V, and more. Click through for all the trailer goodness you can handle. And then some.
First up on the menu we have probably the most exciting of all the offerings, it's the remake of Final Fantasy VII from Square Enix. Or as it's being called Final Fantasy VII Remake. And before you roll an eyebrow or two because HD-Remasters seem to be everywhere these days, this one is special mainly because it's a complete remake. And with the following trailer featuring a lot of in-game footage, visually speaking, this is worlds apart from the PlayStation original. Well, apart from the giant sword stuff of course. Because no matter what the polygon count, a sword as big as a human being will always look cool. Or, silly.
Next up we have another extended look at Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, this time in a trailer that ditches high-octane action in lieu of paperwork. And that's not a joke, as the first thirty seconds feature Nathan Drake stamping paperwork. Things don't exactly get all that exciting for the remainder of the five minute look as the rest of it is a family reunion that would only make sense to those familiar with the series. A strange look, at a high profile blockbuster action-adventure.
After that dose of familial boredom, albeit one with fantastic character models and animation, you need some action. So here's a look at F.A.N.G the latest and final character reveal for Street Fighter V.
Keeping up the bright and colourful vibe is a new look at Ratchet & Clank, which looks to fill the void left by the absence of any sort of decent action/platformer since the last game. Here's hoping we see a revival of the platformer in the near future.
Next up we have Ni No Kuni II, and judging by that title you can tell that it's an anime-inspired game. But what the title doesn't give away is just how amazing it looks in action, with animation and art that elevate it to the level of some of the most visually impressive anime films and animated series coming from Japan today. Magical.
A new title from Project Aces running on Unreal Engine 4 can only mean one thing, Ace Combat 7. Fighter jets among the clouds, epic music, and radio chatter. Enough said.
Finally, we have Yakuza 0 which is getting a western release on PlayStation 4. And if you've ever wanted to be a gangster from neon-lit Tokyo in 1998, this trailer has it all. And a motorcycle used as a melee weapon.
And if that's not enough you can watch the entire keynote presentation from the event.
