TGS 2017 Watch Capcom's Entire Monster Hunter: World PS4 Presentation
Features a lot of brand new gameplay
If you're eager to see more of the superb looking Monster Hunter: World, then you may want to get stuck into Capcom's Tokyo Game Show 2017 presentation, which we've embedded above. The video's about 50 minutes long, but it features a lot of fresh gameplay footage, including a look at one of the title's hub...
TGS 2017 Nioh Cuts Loose with a Complete Edition Later This Year
The base game and all DLC
An announcement that should come as no surprise to anyone, Nioh will be getting a Complete Edition. The final slice of downloadable content for the samurai slasher was revealed recently, so it only makes sense for publisher Koei Tecmo to come out and tell us that it's stuffing the base game and all three of its...
TGS 2017 Wrap Your Eyes Around 13 Minutes of Gorgeous Dragon's Crown PS4 Gameplay
Officially revealed earlier this week at TGS 2017, Dragon's Crown Pro is dashing onto PlayStation 4 early next year in Japan. The remaster will boast 4K resolution on PS4 Pro, and it's apparently fitted with a newly recorded live orchestra soundtrack. Perhaps best of all, it'll support cross-play with the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita versions...
TGS 2017 Yakuza: Kiwami 2 Nabs Another Questionable Side Activity
The Yakuza series is no stranger to, er, somewhat questionable side activities. Yakuza 0, for example, introduced a minigame in which you watch scantily clad women wrestle in an underground area and place bets on who you think will come out on top. We're not sure whether stuff like this goes down well with everyone, but the bottom line is...
TGS 2017 Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Doesn't Make You Play as Kirito
Good news for all of you Sword Art Online fans out there who are sick of being plonked into series protagonist Kirito's shoes: Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet won't make you play as the Black Swordsman. According to information coming out of Tokyo Game Show 2017, as reported by IGN, the third-person shooter is all about your custom...
TGS 2017 Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker Beta Coming Soon to PS4
Team-based brawler Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker has a new trailer fresh from TGS 2017. The video itself doesn't really show us anything that we haven't seen before, but it does confirm that a beta test for the game is coming to PlayStation 4 in the near future. No concrete date is given, but we imagine that won't be too far off. We'll...
TGS 2017 Over 20 Minutes of Yakuza: Kiwami 2 Gameplay Shows an Impressive Remake
The boys are back in town
Yakuza: Kiwami 2 is set to be a thoroughly entertaining return to what is arguably one of the best titles in the series. Yakuza 2 launched on the PlayStation 2 all the way back in 2006, and thanks to the lovely looking Dragon Engine -- which also forms the basis for the upcoming Yakuza 6 -- the adventure is back with a...
TGS 2017 Here's 24 Minutes of Glorious Monster Hunter: World PS4 Gameplay
Out and about
Who's up for a good look at Monster Hunter: World, then? Straight out of TGS 2017, Japanese publication Famitsu has uploaded over 20 minutes of PlayStation 4 gameplay footage -- and it looks fantastic. The video features the game's desert area and plenty of combat. Remember, Monster Hunter: World isn't very far away at all -- it's due...
TGS 2017 Fist of the North Star Looks Brain-Bustingly Brilliant in First Gameplay
You're definitely already dead
We may only have three minutes of Fist of the North Star footage to gawk at, but boy does it look promising. Essentially a Yakuza title with a Fist of the North Star skin, the game's certainly grabbed our attention. In the video that we've embedded, we get to see some general exploration as well as...
TGS 2017 New FighterZ Trailer Gives Us a Glimpse of a 'Forbidden' Dragon Ball Story
Waifu 21 is here too
Dragon Ball FighterZ has a new story trailer fresh from TGS 2017. As you'd expect, the video shows off newly announced playable characters Yamcha, Tien, and Android 21. Unsurprisingly, the latter -- an original character partly designed by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama -- plays a main role in the title's...
TGS 2017 Resident Evil 7's Not a Hero Looks Like Brilliant Free DLC
Chris Redfield’s back – and so are his burly biceps. Okay, so actually the legendary BSAA agent may not look quite as ripped in Resident Evil 7’s universe, but he’s still able to Shoryuken the Moulded like they’re not even there. In this first gameplay footage of the title’s Not a Hero add-on pack, we see the former...
TGS 2017 Project Nimbus Is a Lightning Fast Mecha Dogfighter Coming to PS4
Project Nimbus: Code Mirai looks like a title worth keeping an eye on -- especially if you're a fan of mecha action. The lightning fast title is currently available on Steam in early access, but publisher GameTomo has announced that it'll be bringing the dogfighter West on PlayStation 4 in 2018. Going by the game's TGS 2017 trailer, which...
TGS 2017 There's a New Virtual-On Game By the Way
But it's all a bit weeb
It’s been over a decade since the last Virtual-On game, but a new instalment is scheduled to release on the PlayStation 4 and Vita from 15th February in Japan. Announced during Sony’s TGS 2017 press conference, the game is a crossover with the A Certain Magical Index franchise. Which is weird, but there you go.
TGS 2017 Final Fantasy XV's Multiplayer Comrades Expansion Drops on Halloween
And here's a new trailer
Square Enix has slapped a date on Final Fantasy XV's multiplayer expansion. Titled Comrades, the pack adds a full-blown co-op mode to the game in which you create your own custom character and take on combat-heavy missions with other players. It's part of the game's season pass, but it'll also be available separately...
TGS 2017 We're So Glad Dissidia Final Fantasy NT's Awful HUD Has Been Altered
You can actually see the game now
Regular readers will know that this particular author has previously voiced great disapproval regarding the HUD design in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Bloated and horribly cluttered, there was way too much information jammed onto the screen -- it was so busy that you could barely see the actual gameplay. Here's a...
TGS 2017 As Expected, Left Alive Is Set in the Front Mission Universe
Boasts three protagonists
Hate to say we told you so, but we did tell you so: Square Enix has revealed that its new third-person survival shooter Left Alive – which was announced during Sony’s TGS 2017 press conference yesterday – is set in the Front Mission universe, somewhere between the fifth instalment and Front Mission Evolved...

Round Up What Did Sony Announce During Its TGS 2017 Press Conference?
In case you missed it
Sony’s big TGS 2017 press conference was a relatively low-key affair, but it did play host to plenty of new trailers and announcements. In case you missed the show, we’ve compiled all of the headlines from PlayStation’s Tokyo Game Show briefing below. Sony PlayStation's TGS 2017 Press Conference Round Up: Monster...
TGS 2017 Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2 Announced for Japan
Suits you, sir
Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2 will mech its way to the PlayStation 4 next year in the Japan. Google tells us that this is actually a sequel to a free-to-play PlayStation 3 competitive action title that closed down earlier in the year. To be perfectly honest, we can’t tell you much more about it – but we’ll make sure...
TGS 2017 Cult PS2 Shooter Gungrave Returns on PlayStation VR
Here’s a name you’re unlikely to have heard for a while: Gungrave. The third-person shooter originally launched on the PlayStation 2 all the way back in 2002 – and in the most unlikeliest of comebacks, the brand is about to be revived for PlayStation VR. Of course, it’s looking pretty different these days – it appears...
TGS 2017 Enjoy the Sounds of Japan Studio with PlayStation VR
Orchestral app on the way
Earlier this year, Sony hosted a concert at the Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall in Kawasaki, where the Tokyo Chamber Orchestra and the Tokyo Philharmonic Chorus performed various pieces of music from the developer's diverse collection of games. This included compositions from Gravity Rush, The Last Guardian, and much more. And...
TGS 2017 Detroit: Become Human Seems Even More Dramatic in Japanese
In addition to being a venue for new announcements, it’s worth remembering that the Tokyo Game Show is also used to introduce Western titles to the Japanese market. This means that, while we may have already seen plenty of releases like Detroit: Become Human here in the West, it may be the Asian market’s first proper taste of...
TGS 2017 Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain Is a Different Kind of EDF
Earth Defense Force is best known for its B-movie production values, as the melodramatic Earth Defense Force 5 trailer we posted earlier demonstrates. But another instalment is on the way courtesy of Yuke’s Media Creations: Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain. To us, this looks like a more mature, more pol
TGS 2017 Earth Defense Force 5 Brings Its Special Brand of Jank to PS4 on 7th December
EDF! EDF! EDF
There were two Earth Defense Force games shown during Sony’s TGS 2017 press conference, but lets start with the janky one, shall we? D3 Publisher has announced that Earth Defense Force 5 will plunge framerates with low-quality assets from 7th December in Japan. Again, there’s no word on a Western release date just yet, but we’d...
TGS 2017 Boost Your Play Is Another Brilliant PS4 Montage
Sony is the undisputed master of the montage, but PlayStation Japan has raised the level even higher in recent years. You may remember last year’s PlayStation 4 rap, and now the platform holder’s returned with a new promotional video, this time running with the slogan ‘Boost Your Play’. The idea is that each major upcoming game...
TGS 2017 Don't Expect A-Train de Ikou Exp to Travel to the West
Ticket to ride
Niche railway management simulation A-Train de Ikou Exp will collect a ticket and travel to the PlayStation 4 on 21st December in Japan. Fares for the urban management experience will cost ¥7,800, and, no, you probably shouldn’t expect an international journey to the West. The title – which is being developed by Artdink –...
TGS 2017 Dragon's Crown Pro Will Be Even More Stunning on PS4 Pro in Native 4K
Just when you thought Dragon's Crown couldn't get any prettier, Atlus goes ahead and confirms that the PlayStation 4 remaster, titled Dragon's Crown Pro and officially revealed earlier today, will run in native 4K resolution on PS4 Pro. We're not sure our eyes will be able to take it. To go along with this confirmation, the...
TGS 2017 Cat Collecting Sim Neko Atsume Purrs to PlayStation VR
Few details were revealed during Sony's TGS 2017 press conference, but cat collecting sim Neko Atsume is coming to PlayStation VR next year in Japan. The main game – available on smartphones – sees you placing items in order to attract furry friends to your garden. It’s unclear at the time of typing, but we imagine this PlayStation 4...
TGS 2017 Sony Bets Big on Monster Hunter with Limited Edition PS4 Pro
Liolaeus Edition launching in Japan
It’s no surprise to see Sony pushing Monster Hunter: World hard – this is a huge title for both the PlayStation 4 and Capcom itself. As such, a Limited Edition hardware bundle always seemed likely – and that’s exactly what the platform holder announced during its TGS 2017 press conference earlier today...
TGS 2017 Gorgeous 13 Sentinels Trailer Still Doesn't Show Any Real Gameplay
We need to know
Listen, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim looks absolutely gorgeous, but what does the game actually entail? Even after its most recent showing during Sony's TGS 2017 press conference, we still don't know what it's all about. It's got multiple playable high school students who pilot big mechs, but do we get to smash things up with...
TGS 2017 Zone of the Enders Runs to PS4 with PlayStation VR Support
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner is being remastered for the PlayStation 4, with a Spring 2018 release date touted during Sony’s big TGS 2017 press conference earlier today.

TGS 2017 Dynasty Warriors 9 Launches on PS4 Worldwide in Early 2018
Koei Tecmo shares a vague date
Dynasty Warriors 9 got a new-ish trailer and a vague 'early 2018' release date during Sony's TGS 2017 press conference. Japan is also getting a limited edition Dynasty Warriors 9 PlayStation 4 console, but we seriously doubt that'll be coming West. And that vague release date is worldwide, by the way. Nice...
TGS 2017 Is This PlayStation's Best Ever Commercial?
We can do anything
Japanese commercials virtually always bring their A-game, but this new PlayStation 4 advert is a cut above. The musical marketing revolves around the theme that you "can do anything” with Sony’s current-gen console – but it gets its point across in remarkably jovial fashion. The clip will air in Japan throughout the end of...
TGS 2017 Shadow of the Colossus Stuns with New PS4 Trailer
Here’s a longer look at Shadow of the Colossus on the PlayStation 4. In case you somehow missed the news at E3 2017, then remaster specialist Bluepoint is remaking Team ICO’s classic for Sony’s current console – and here’s a longer look at all of the morally testing titan slaughtering in all of its glory. A masterpiece.
TGS 2017 Yakuza Studio's Fist of the North Star Punches PS4 to Bits in February 2018
In Japan, at least
In case you don't already know, Fist of the North Star is coming to PlayStation 4, and it's being developed by the team behind the Yakuza series. It was first revealed a few weeks ago during the developer's own presentation, and now the brawler's got a new trailer fresh from Sony's TGS 2017 press conference. Basically, this looks...
TGS 2017 Noctis Joins the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Battle on PS4
Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT got a new gameplay trailer during Sony's TGS 2017 press conference. The brawler's still looking pretty, but the big takeaway here is that Noctis of Final Fantasy XV will be joining the playable character roster. Not much of a surprise, but at least he looks fun to fight as. You can catch a glimpse of the gloomy...
TGS 2017 Left Alive Assembles an All-Star Development Crew
Metal Gear Solid's Yoji Shinkawa leading art
Left Alive is a mysterious new PlayStation 4 game from Square Enix, announced during Sony’s TGS 2017 press conference earlier today. The game is being produced by Shinji Hashimoto, who’s perhaps best known for trolling the PlayStation fanbase in the inaugural PlayStation Experience showcase. More...
TGS 2017 Dragon's Crown Pro Burns PS4 Alive in January 2018
Current-gen remaster confirmed
Dragon's Crown Pro is official, and it's coming to PlayStation 4 on the 25th January in Japan. A remaster of the already stunning PlayStation 3 and Vita release, it promises enhanced resolution and, at a guess, a more stable frame rate. There's currently no word on a Western launch, but we don't see why Atlus wouldn't...
TGS 2017 Final Fantasy IX Launches on PS4 Today in Japan, West Can't Be Far Off
That was fast
Final Fantasy IX is coming to PlayStation 4 -- we've known that since the port was rated for the console last night, before Sony's TGS 2017 presser had even started. The game was officially confirmed during said conference, however, and better yet, it's actually launching today in Japan. There's no word on a Western release date just...

Monster Hunter: World got a release date during Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2017 press conference -- the good news is that it applies worldwide. Even better news is that we don't actually have long to wait at all: it launches for PlayStation 4 on the 26th January 2018. That's a little over four months away!...

Guide What Time Is Sony's TGS 2017 PlayStation Press Conference?
When and where to watch Sony's Japanese briefing
Of all the annual PlayStation press conferences, the Tokyo Game Show probably ranks the lowest of the lot in terms of interest. And that’s a shame because, if you’ve worked through the dodgy translations in the past, you’ll know that previous shows have played host to reveals like Gravity Rush 2...

News Sony Reveals TGS 2017 PS4 Software Lineup
Monster Hunter! Yakuza! Gran Turismo!
Sony’s booth at TGS 2017 will only be dwarfed by those belonging to Japan’s biggest smartphone success stories – but that’s the state of the industry overseas these days. Nevertheless, the platform holder has booked out plenty of space to showcase a slew of PlayStation 4 titles, including local...
News Sony Schedules One More 2017 PlayStation Press Conference
Tokyo Game Show pre-show is go
Back at E3 2017 when some expressed disappointment at the lack of new PlayStation 4 game reveals during Sony’s press conference, we did point out that the platform holder tends to hold multiple briefings towards the tail end of the year. And it’s just announced that, in addition to Paris Games Week and PlayStation...
