State of Play returns later today focusing on PSVR2 and PS5

State of Play returns later today focusing on games coming to PS VR2, PS5 as well as PS4 in celebration of the Tokyo Game Show.

The Tokyo Game Show 2022 takes place this Thursday, September 15th and will end on Sunday, September 18th. Will Sony, a Japanese giant will double dip with a presence at both TGS and today’s State of Play broadcast?

Japanese partners will feature at State of Play

At this time, we do not know exactly what will be showcased at Sony’s event. However, a PlayStation Blog post does mention “updates from our amazing Japanese partners, along with a few other surprises from developers all around the world.

It might be safe to assume that there will be some first-party titles highlighted at State of Play, especially with the likes of God of War Ragnarok releasing this November, as well as PS VR2 arriving sometime during early 2023.

What will be at State of Play?

Seeing as we don’t know for sure what Japanese games will be showcased during the broadcast later today, let’s get our speculative juices flowing. 

The Resident Evil 4 remake arrives in March 2023 and we’ve also got a PS VR2 port of RE Village to look forward to. So, we’d be surprised if Capcom doesn’t feature one way or another.

We know that Konami will be at the Tokyo Game Show, but could it make a surprise announcement during Sony’s event? After all, both Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid are not only PlayStation greats, but rumours of remakes have been circulating for quite some time.

Furthermore, we know that Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 16 is a timed PlayStation exclusive, so hopefully, we’ll see more of that either during State of Play or TGS. Finally, could we also see the rumoured Elden Ring DLC announced by Bandai Namco? Only time will tell.

State of Play will air on PlayStation’s YouTube and Twitch channels later today at 11pm UK time/3pm PT/6pm ET.

The event is expected to run for about 20 minutes with reveals, updates and new gameplay. Sony has also stated that a total of 10 games will feature in the State of Play event.

There is another!

State of Play is not the only broadcast from a giant Japanese publisher today. A Nintendo Direct will air on YouTube at 4pm UK time/7am PT/10am PT. The Nintendo Direct will run for around 20 minutes and rumours suggest that it will be a “Zelda blowout”.
