Playstation Experience 2016 has passed us by, and while we all know about the day Naughty Dog had, and Marvel v. Capcom: Infinite, we also were able to learn so much more.
Naughty Dog came out with a bang. They announced that we will get Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which will focus on Chloe (that Chloe from Uncharted 2) and will be DLC. That’s about all we know at this moment. However, the reveal that broke the internet was that of The Last of Us Part II. We know, from the Naughty Dog panel, that we will be playing as Ellie. We have no idea of a release date, but if I was a betting man, I would say sometime in 2018.
Another game that was rumored, but is now official is Marvel v. Capcom 4, also known as Marvel v. Capcom: Infinite. We were shown Ryu, Mega Man, Iron Man, and Captain Marvel, as well as the official Marvel logo. It will feature 2v2 battles, infinity stones (which allow unique abilities and “game-changing effects”), training, missions, arcade modes, and a “cinematic story” according to Capcom. Another fun thing we were given is that MvC Ultimate is now available on PS4 (exclusively) as of yesterday.
We were also told that Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza 6, the former being a from the ground up remake of the original Yakuza will be coming west. Kiwami will release summer of 2017, while Yakuza 6 will release “early 2018.”
We also got an official name for the Crash Bandicoot trilogy remake; Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy, which consist of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped.
We also learned that my personal favorite sports game, MLB The Show’s new rendition, 2017, would be getting a retro mode. MLB The Show 2017 will release March 28, 2017, just weeks ahead of the 2017 regular season (GO RED SOX!).
We got a heavy dose of gameplay filled trailer of the Studio Ghibli-produced RPG, Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. Fans will be pleased with more of the same from the first game.
We got a trailer of the VR Gran Turismo game, Gran Turismo Sport, set to release worldwide sometime in 2017.
Horizon Zero Dawn showed “The Machines Trailer.” The game is looking strong.
Knack 2 was announced, in what some felt was a surprising move by Sony. It seems to have a focus on co-op.
Bandai-Namco is still working on Ace Combat 7, and it’s a direct sequel of Ace Combat 6.
Parappa the Rapper will be getting a remastering on the PS4, as well as LocoRoco and Patapon getting PS4 remasters. All three will run native 4k on the Pro. You can also get the demo for Parappa today.
Wipeout Omega Collection, which consist of Wipeout HD, Fury, and 2048, will be a remaster collection. It will consist of online and split-screen multiplayer.
Overall the PS Experience was great for fans of Playstation with several announcements and discussions. Please look for our article from Damian, our team member that was able to go to PSX in the near future.
