5. Gravity Rush 2 (also Gravity Daze Remaster)
In a move that is sure to make hardened PlayStation Vita fans weep, the Gravity Rush series moves to PlayStation 4 with the release of Gravity Rush 2, coming in 2016. Combining its unique gameplay with utterly sumptuous graphics, Gravity Rush 2 looks like a game to get excited about. Oh, and Gravity Daze (or Rush, as we know it in the west) is being remastered for PlayStation 4 too, and may possibly be released in the not too distant future.
4. Danganronpa 3
An announcement that is sure to please a legion of fans, a new Danganronpa game is in development for both PS Vita and PlayStation 4. Being such a story driven series, it will be strange jumping into the third part of the story on PS4; maybe the previous Vita-only entries will see a PlayStation 4 release? Who knows!
3. Yakuza 6 (also Yakuza 1 Extreme)
A series with a dedicated following, the Yakuza games are great open-world action adventure affairs that struggle to find a place in the western marketplace. With Yakuza 5 soon to be released via PSN in the west however, hopes are high that this new Yakuza game, set to be released late next year in Japan, also finds its way into our hands. As if the announcement of Yakuza 6 isn’t enough though, a remake of the first Yakuza game is also on the cards, and will be released early in 2016.
2. Toukiden 2
Given Toukiden’s success on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4, it’s no surprise that a sequel has been announced. Other than the game is going to take a more open world approach, not much is known about it yet, but I suspect it’ll involve killing a large number of demons with a wide variety of weapons whilst engaging in a nonsensical yet strangely enjoyable story. PlayStation 3 and PS Vita owners will be happy to know that they’ll be able to get in on the action too.
1. Kingdom Hearts 2.8
Kingdom Hearts… 2.8!?! Once you get past the stupid name, this new collection of Kingdom Hearts titles leading up the release of the third major entry in the series sounds pretty good. Containing Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover, and Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep, which is a completely new playable episode linking to Kingdom Hearts 3, played from the perspective of Aqua. Set to be released in 2016, Kingdom Hearts fans won’t want to miss this collection. But Square, where’s the Kingdoms Hearts 1.5 and 2.5 collections for PlayStation 4? We want them now!
