Killzone Shadow Fall
Developer: Guerrilla Games
Sony has a strong string of releases for Japan.
The Sony presser saw quite a lot of announcements and trailers for upcoming games, along with outlining the Japanese release date for the PlayStation 4 and the games that would be arriving for the same. It also revealed a new trailer which showcased all the games that PS4 players could look forward to.
The line-up included Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Killzone: Shadow Fall, DriveClub, Doki Doki Universe, Knack (releasing free with the console in Japan), Need for Speed Rivals, Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Resogun, inFamous Second Son, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Psycho Break (aka The Evil Within), Thief, Strider, Dying Light, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Watch_Dogs, Kingdom Hearts III, The Crew, The Order: 1886, Final Fantasy XV, Phantom Breaker Overdrive and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
So when Sony indicated that the delay is to ensure the localization of all Western releases, they weren’t kidding.
Now the funny thing is: It’s easy to pick out the launch titles, but will we be seeing games like The Order: 1886 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain even in the next year itself? That remains to be seen. The PS4 launches on February 22nd 2014 in Japan, while it launches in North America on November 15th 2013 and in Europe on November 29th 2013.
