Sony is plotting a press conference in China this week, which it promises will reveal the third phase of its ongoing China Hero Project. The Japanese giant has been nurturing developers all across the country, pledging funding, marketing, and publishing support for a variety of games, including FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch and more.

This week it confirmed that, despite skipping most major conventions this year, it’ll have a booth at ChinaJoy in Shanghai, which is scheduled to take place this weekend, between 28th July and 31st July. And prior to that, it’ll host a press conference where it’ll reveal new Chinese developed PS5 and PS4 games coming to its consoles.

Phase Three of the China Hero Project is said to include around ten titles, but only three have been officially unveiled thus far: EXILEDGE, AWAKEN: Astral Blade, and Will-less. That means we should learn about several more titles during the press conference, which can be streamed live on Bilibili if you’d like to watch.

The show will get underway on 27th July at 10AM local time in Shanghai, but we’ve provided a handy time zone guide below for your reference. Please note that in the US, the show will actually occur on the evening of the 26th July:

  • North America: 7pm PDT / 8pm MDT / 9pm CDT / 10pm EDT
