The SCEJA Press Conference 2014.

Alright.  It's one AM and I'm still awake.  Wow me, Japan.

Having the Vita logo front & center with the PS4's a good start. C'monnn Gravity Rush 2!

Way of the Samurai for Vita!  Wooo! A new Phantasy Star for Vita from Tri-Ace!  (They made Resonance of Fate).  Phantasy Star Nova. Interested.

W-Force... a new Dynasty Warriors... Gundam Breaker 2...

Something from Marvelous AQL...  Luminous Arc Infinity - a lovely-looking RPG... Nice.  Man this translator sucks.

...some romance visual novel games aimed at lady gamers...

Light pink white Vita slim coming Nov 13th in Japan.  Wow.  A pink Vita.  Way to reach out to female gamers in a meaningful way, Sony.

Themes are coming to Vita - backgrounds, music and icons.... sizzle reel for Vita... which includes Farm Simulator.  Okay.

Destiny will be PlayStation-exclusive in Japan.

Ubisoft is up to talk up AC Unity and The Crew.  The translator pronounces it You-Be-Eye Soft. Heh.

The Crew's Japanese beta test will be exclusive to PS4.  ...Far Cry 4 trailer - it's the opening we saw earlier this year.

They're showing a Witcher III' trailer.  I wonder if folks in Japan always feel a little burnt that their events never get new trailers for western games?

Shu Yoshida's up!

An SCE Studio Japan title for PS4... A new Hot Shots?  Yes, a new Hot Shots Golf.  Very realistic environments.

How he's talkin' about LBP3... again, it's basically everything we heard at E3.  He shows a trailer for The Tomorrow Children and The Order: 1886... now he's going to talk about "That Game..." which turns out to be Bloodborne.  Holy shit, release date!

Bloodborne will launch on February 5th (in Japan - no word on a western release date.)

Now they're talking about Morpheus.... Kingdom Under Fire II... Let It Die... wow.  Tons of gameplay we didn't see at E3. Now it looks like Earth Defence Force.  EDF 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair. 

A medieval RTS title called Bladestorm - huge battles with tons of characters, good graphics. Now Nippon Ichi... Disgaea 5, coming to PS4 in 2015.

Kojima's come out to talk about the P.T. teaser for Silent Hills. Instead of just talking about Silent Hills.

Now Guillermo del Toro's talkin' about what a brilliant storyteller Kojima is.  Okay.

Now we're seeing some footage from the Resident Evil up-port.  Honestly, why they wouldn't at least make it look as good as RE5 is beyond me.

Whup - a dude from Sega.  If this isn't RoF or Valkyria Chronicles I'm gonna' be disappointed.

It's Yakuza Zero.  Okay.  A pretty decent-looking in-engine cutscene.  Then he talks about accurately recreating 1988 for a while.  A long while.  Now Namco Bandai's up.

For Vita & PS4... now I'm curious... God Eater 2: Rage Burst.  And now... this:

Dragonball Xenoverse coming to PS4.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 for PS4.

A new Gundam game...

Dead or Alive 5...

Sengan Karua: Estival Versus for PS4.... a new volcaloid game...

Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force...

A new Ys game for PS4!  Doesn't look too bad.  I mean, it's a shitty stream, but it looks like a decent-looking PS3 game.  That's nice.  And coming to Vita.  nice.

Holy shit PERSONA 5 TRAILER!!!

It's all a cinematic... modern setting, dude with glasses and turtleneck... Persona 5 is coming to PS4 in 2015.  PS4!  Wooo!

Themes are finally coming to PS4.  Thank goodness.

And now it's a big sizzle reel... hm, I didn't know Guilty Gear Xrd was coming to PS4...

Finally, something from Square...  Is this frickin' Dragon Quest Dynasty Warriors?  Pretty much, yeah.

Dragon Quest Heroes, coming 2015 to PS4.   And I am well past spent.  I shoulda' been asleep three hours ago, so g'night.

Annnd a white PS4 is coming.

  • Phantasy Star Nova for Vita
  • Way of the Samurai for Vita
  • Ys something for PS4 and Vita
