Plus, Yu-No remake, Steins; Gate Elite and 428: Shibuya Scramble PS4 releases announced at Anime Expo 2018
Hello PlayStation Blog! I’m here to celebrate some amazing announcements from our very first Anime Expo!
AI: The Somnium Files
First, I’m sure all eyes have been on this…we revealed AI: The Somnium Files for PlayStation 4 with director Kotaro Uchikoshi at our company panel! This title was announced as Project: PSYNC at GDC two years ago, and I’m so happy we can finally talk about it.
Feast your eyes on this trailer:
With Yusuke Kozaki (Fire Emblem Awakening, No More Heroes) as the lead character designer, this game just oozes detective-noir style. Combined with the mystery and complicated, mind-blowing plot that I know Uchikoshi will deliver, everything about AI: The Somnium Files is just so cool. By the way, I recommend watching that trailer closely for more clues…
Next, we’ll be bringing Yu-No to the West on PS4! MAGES./5pb.’s Yu-No is a remake of the original 1998 PC and Sega Saturn version, complete with new art and voice acting.
More info on Yu-No coming soon!
Steins;Gate Elite’s release date made some time leaps, so first, apologies for the delay. Steins;Gate Elite is coming to PS4 in 2019! Also, all PS4 copies will include Steins;Gate: Linear Bounded Phenogram, which is pretty cool because writers like Uchikoshi worked on the ten character-focused scenarios.
428: Shibuya Scramble
Then, 428: Shibuya Scramble is coming to PS4 later this year! Also never before released in the West, the game’s overview trailer introduces the title better than I could:
Between Mr. Mean Clean (the mascot on Achi’s shirt) and Tama, there’s something in the game for everyone. And, there’s even an Ufotable anime follow-up, Canaan, so check that out if you want to get a taste of 428: Shibuya Scramble’s world.
As a Zero Escape series fan, I’m definitely looking forward to AI: The Somnium Files! What are you most excited for?
