As the Tokyo Game Show 2019 has come to close, there's plenty of new games, features and footage revealed during the course of the event. Of course, this mainly comes from Japanese developers showcasing their best and hottest titles with Square Enix‘s Final Fantasy VII Remake and upcoming DLC from Kingdom Hearts 3, as well as Koei Tecmo‘s FAIRY TAIL and Nioh 2.There's also Hideo Kojima‘s much-hyped title Death Stranding, in which Kojima showcased a full 49-minute gameplay demo at the event!
So if you need to see the special trailers and announcements launched during Tokyo Game Show 2019, you've come to the right place.
While this clip is only seven-minutes, it's part of the 49-minute gameplay mentioned earlier. This particular scene focuses on one scene in the White House Oval Office. In the clip, Amelie, who is likely the President of the United States, is talking to the game’s main character Sam and Die-Hardman about helping restore mankind from devastation.
Death Stranding is set to be launched this November 8 2019.
If you're a fan of Final Fantasy VII, you must be pretty excited with what the remake has to offer. During E3 2019 it was revealed the remake will come in two parts, with the first half taking place in Midgar only. But the new Tokyo Game Show trailer showed a glimpse at all the charm the remake will retain from the original. There are moments and small nuances from the original making its way to the remake; including the Toad status effect actually turning characters into toads until cured, and Cloud being offered up as a sex slave to mob boss Don Corneo. Hehe!
Part one will be available on March 3, 2020.
Team Ninja’s follow-up title follows a player-created protagonist who can transform into a yokai, offering a wide range of new gameplay mechanics. The game’s producer confirmed it will be a prequel taking place slightly before the original game in the late 1500s.
Nioh 2 is set to launch in early 2020, with a beta scheduled for November 1.
Project Resistance is a four-player co-op survival horror spin-off title where players use various Resident Evil weapons to take down zombies. A robot that looks suspiciously familiar to Nemesis and Mr. X from previous installments of the RE franchise also continuously appears.
No announcement date has been released for Project Resistence.
In this new installment, a new protagonist named Ichiban Kasuga as well as a new turn-based RPG combat mechanic will be introduced to the usual action-oriented franchise. The trailer also showcases its spin on the traditional RPG job classes, proving that although the formula has been changed, it will retain its charm and humour as it even includes Mario Kart-esque activities and a brand new location setting.
Yakuza 7 is expected to launch sometime next year.
Kingdom Hearts 3 has a special place in our hearts, even with the many criticism against it. With more to look forward to, the DLC promises powerful new bosses alongside additional battles, keyblades and the ability for players to be able to switch characters in previously played battles. It also appears the DLC will clue folks into what happened in the hidden cinematics of the base game.
So far, all we have is the trailer so we'll need to wait for more updates!
The much awaited crowdfunded three-quel is just a few months away and the calming mood trailer for Shenmue III showcases a travelogue of the various towns, forests and villages that protagonist Ryo Hazuki will visit on his dogged quest.
Shenmue III launches on PS4 and PC via Epic Games Store on November 19.
Being in Japan, of course anime based games will continue to be a thing especially in Tokyo Game Show. On top of the usual One Piece and Dragonball shounen fair, we now have a new entry with Fairy Tail. The game follows Lucy Heartfilia, Natsu Dragneel, and other members of the titular guild of magicians. This JRPG is helmed by Gust Studios and developed by Koei Tecmo, who also developed the original Nioh and core Dynasty Warriors games.
FAIRY TAIL launches for PC, PlayStation 4 and Switch sometime in 2020.
The Pirate Warriors series combines Dynasty Warrior gameplay; throw in One Piece and you'll get a wacky universe to deliver a button-mashing spectacle with plenty of charm for One Piece fans. While the previous title follows the entirety of the anime from the beginning to the current arc at the time, this game will cover all of the current Wano saga.
The game is set to launch sometime in 2020.
During Gamescom, it was revealed that the Kakarot-centric Dragon Ball Z action RPG would follow every arc of the franchise. However in the trailer revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2019, there are actually many characters from those various arcs, including the final series antagonist Majin Buu. It was also revealed that players can take control and travel with other characters besides Goku to experience many of the game’s various open-world activities.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is expected to arrive sometime in 2020.
