The PlayStation 5 launch advert was designed to be "epic and iconic", but in doing so, it doesn’t actually feature any next-gen games. That’s a criticism you could leverage at the commercial, so why not pretend it’s Japanese counterpart is the one being beamed out to homes across the globe instead? It includes PS5 games! Check the TV spot out above.
The space and conquering great feats theming remains for the first 20 seconds, but then a sizzle reel of upcoming PS5 titles plays to really get the Japanese audience excited. There's Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Demon's Souls. Much better, right? It's still kind of crazy to think that every one of these PS5 games was announced in a single hour stretch back in June. What an event that PS5 Future of Gaming livestream was.
So, do you think this is a better advert for PS5 than the English version? Debate in the comments below.
