Sony has unveiled its lineup of PlayStation 4 games planned to be featured during the Tokyo Game Show convention. The lineup includes over 60 games which will either be playable or have trailers shown. Playable games include Dragon Ball Z Kakarot and Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Additionally, Sony plans to showcase 8 PS4 games as part of its TGS 2019 stage events. These events will be live-streamed on Twitch and YouTube directly from the PlayStation booth.
8 games will be showcased by Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia at its TGS booth. Based on the description, each game will be showcased individually rather than via a keynote presentation. Each stage event will be live-streamed, but no schedule is currently available. The games planned to be showcased include Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Death Stranding, Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Gran Turismo Sport, Nioh 2, Project Resistance, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
While major PlayStation exclusives like Death Stranding, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and Gran Turismo Sport are certain to be popular at TGS, two of the other games are likely to draw lots of attention, too. Project Resistance is a new game from Capcom, announced just this past week. TGS will be Capcom's first showing of its new game, which is rumored to be a 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer horror game. Yakuza: Like a Dragon is also newly announced. The new Yakuza game replaces the franchise's usual action combat with turn-based combat, which is expected to be shown in greater detail at TGS.
PlayStation will also have a significant number of demo stations at its booth, allowing TGS attendees to play a variety of upcoming PS4 games. Major western games including Fortnite, FIFA 20, and Borderlands 3 will be available for attendees. But Japanese-developed titles including Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, Granblue Fantasy: Versus, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Nioh 2, and Persona 5 Royal may take the spotlight. Sony will also have several PlayStation VR titles on-hand to play.
Due to Sony's impressive range of playable demos and stage events at Tokyo Game Show 2019, there won't be a PlayStation keynote presentation. This decision continues Sony's step back from major convention presentations going back through E3 2019. Sony appears to be saving its plans for the inevitable announcement of the PlayStation 5 either later this year or in early 2020. In the meantime, PlayStation still has a great lineup of titles to share with fans at TGS.
Tokyo Game Show 2019 begins September 11 and will last through September 15.
