Tokyo Game Show isn’t always the most relevant event for the VR industry, but it is a great chance to see what’s new with Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR). This year’s show should prove no different.
Sony is bringing a host of the latest PSVR titles to the event, which runs from September 21st – 24th. Highlighting the list, as revealed by Gematsu, is a fresh chance to try out The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in VR. The game is due for release in just a few months’ time in November, but there’s still a lot to learn about its controls and content, so we’ll be looking forward to seeing more impressions from the show floor.
Also showing at TGS is the VR support for Gran Turismo Sport, Final Fantasy’s Monsters of the Deep VR spin-off, No Heroes Allowed! and new content for Summer Lesson, an app so far only available in Asia.
That’s not all, though; Sony also has a TGS press conference set for September 19th. It’s here the company usually reveals new games and hardware for its Japanese following, but a translated livestream will be available as always. We’ll likely get a PSVR-dedicated section with some new content so it will hopefully be worth watching. In past years Sony even revealed the PlayStation VR name itself at the show.
Following that, Sony will have a European press conference at Paris Games Week in October, and the PlayStation Experience show is set to return in December. There’s plenty of chances for big new PSVR announcements on the horizon, then.
