Japanese games have come back in a big way this generation, and especially this year– and PS4 has been the beneficiary of a lot of those. Some of this year’s biggest games have been Japanese – Yakuza 0, Resident Evil 7, Nioh, NieR Automata, and of course, Persona 5. And it looks like there is more to come. Speaking to Time, Sony’s American boss Shawn Layden teased more Japanese game announcements for PS4 at E3 this year.
“That’s super important for us,” he said. “I think a lot of Japanese developers lost their way chasing the mobile games yen, if you will, but they’re coming back to console in a major way. And speaking of, we’ll have some big announcements at E3 in that precise vein.”
Considering that all of my favorite games are Japanese, I am down for this- I imagine Ni no Kuni 2 will be a major showcase for Sony at E3 this year.
