Despite spending much of the PlayStation 3 generation twiddling its thumbs, Sony’s primary Eastern game production outfit Japan Studio has been transformed under the leadership of Allan Becker. As such, it’s not especially surprising to learn that the team’s External Development Group – which is responsible for collaborating on titles such as Soul Sacrifice and Rain – is working on a PlayStation 4 project.

The snippet comes via the latest issue of Famitsu, but unfortunately there’s very little information to share. That's no surprise, though, as the division certainly has its work cut out at the moment, with Badman G, Destiny of Spirits, Over My Dead Body 2, Freedom Wars, and Soul Sacrifice Delta all currently under its watchful eye. We remember a time when the first-party studio would put out a title like Trash Panic and call it a day.
