Sony will host a press conference in China next week, with China Hero Project titles likely to appear. The platform holder confirmed that the online showcase will debut on 29th April at 11AM CST, which is 8PM PT (28th April) and 4AM BST. You’ll be able to watch the broadcast live on various platforms, including Weibo, Bilibili, and TikTok – although obviously it’ll be aimed at the market in Asia.
We wouldn’t expect too many new announcements to come out of this, as it’ll likely feature footage for games that are already announced in the West. However, the China Hero Project social media did post about the event, and asked its followers to “guess which game [we’ll] give you can update on this year”. Titles like Lost Soul Aside are part of the China Hero Project, which supports domestic developers.
All eyes will be on promising action RPG Black Myth: Wukong, and whether Sony has picked the project up. This release went viral late last year, and would be a huge addition to the China Hero Project’s portfolio. Is there anything in particular you’d like to see during the event?
