The Tokyo Game Show was alive with new announcements for games that we have both been waiting for and been unaware of. PlayStation had a huge crowd at the TGS, and Square Enix had some news that took some by surprise.
The first is that Final Fantasy IX, that was first launched in 2000 and then re-released on PC in 2015, will now be released on PS4. We are not sure if this will be remastered or simply ported over as is, but for those of us like me that have never played this game, it is welcome to move over. It is already available in the Japan PS Store, and should be available worldwide soon. So keep an eye on your PS Store.
Secondly, there is a new game coming called Left Alive. As Square Enix describes it:
” a brand-new survival action shooter in a dark and gritty world.”
What makes this exciting is that the core developers include the Metal Gear Solid designer Yoji Shinkawa who is also involved with Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding, and MGS former Armored Core director Toshifumi Nabeshima. You can see by this poster for the game just how much of the MGS imagery pulls through.
If you missed the TGS, here are the trailers for Final Fantasy IX on PS4 and Left Alive.
