PlayStation bringing a solid line-up to Tokyo Game Show 2015

Sony has the ability to really light up Tokyo Game Show 2015 this year. Nintendo never attends, and Microsoft opted out of attending for the first time, meaning that most of the hardware to be shown this year will be Sony products.

We’ve seen what a few other publishers are bringing, but what about Sony itself? What will be playable at its own booth?

Naturally, lots and lots of Japanese games and a few games from our neighborhood as well. Take a look at the list below for everything the company is bringing.

PlayStation 4

  • Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (Koei Tecmo)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III (SCE)
  • Destiny: The Taken King (SCE)
  • Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky (Spike Chunsoft)
  • God Eater Resurrection (Bandai Namco)
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (Bandai Namco)
  • JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven (Bandai Namco)
  • Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir (Atlus)
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 (Konami)
  • Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness (Square ENix)
  • Star Wars Battlefront (EA)
  • Street Fighter V (Capcom)
  • Tearaway Unfolded (SCE)
  • The Tomorrow Children (SCE)
  • Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (SCE)

PS Vita

  • Airship Q (Cygames)
  • God Eater Resurrection (Bandai Namco)
  • Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition (SCE)
  • Tokyo Xanadu (Falcom)

Decent list of games, but I wouldn’t really call anything a knockout. The PlayStation 4 is supposed to be getting the home console back on its feet in Japan, but nothing here looks like it is a home run.

Of course, I’ve already stated several times that Star Ocean is on the top of my priority list, so I’ll be playing that at either Square Enix or Sony’s booth. Street Fighter V and Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir are also big on my list of games to hit up, and since I am not sticking solely to Japanese games, I haven’t had the chance to go hands on with Star Wars Battlefront.

The line for that will be huge, so I might have better luck playing other games if it vacuums up much of the crowd.

And even the Vita has a compelling game in Tokyo Xanadu. I’ve professed a lot of interest in it because it is a classic franchise from one of our oldest video game companies. That will be right up there with Star Ocean on my “must play” list.

What would you like me to check out? I’ll be on the floor Sept. 17-18.
