Wow. Stunned. Cannot wait for this. A trailer that tells you everything...and nothing. Day 1.

Eonjay262d ago

This is unexpected to say the least but another great addition to the PlayStation library

LegoIsAwesome262d ago

Awesome. But kinda prefer if they chose to develop a sequel to Second Son's bad ending where possible Cole returns.

nix262d ago

This game is going to be epic.

bouzebbal262d ago

Why is PS so relevant in the eyes of gamers???
For surprises like these.
One more exclusive IP, one!!!

EatCrow262d ago

Unexpected but well received.
Western Studio developing an Eastern game.

Very interested.

thekhurg262d ago

Gaming dreams coming true. Wanted an open world samurai/ninja game since I was a little kid.

freshslicepizza262d ago

Looks good, I love anything to do with samurai and ninja. Tenchu was great years ag

Outside_ofthe_Box262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

Wow, Sucker Punch really wasn't twiddling their thumbs after Second Son. They've been quietly developing a potential next Great Open World game. Can't Wait. I hope there are tons of things to do in this world.

starchild262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

Instantly my most wanted game. I've been waiting for a game like this my whole life. Sony does so incredibly well producing exciting exclusives.

Wonder if that's going to be enough, even with God of War, The Last of Us Part II, Dreams, Detroit Become Human, Spider-Man and the rest, to hold a candle to that other console, with all the horsepower it has. I heard recently that exclusive games don't count and how much closer you can get to native 4K is where it's at...

JBaby343262d ago

@Master: You had to bring the console war into this. Everyone else was commenting how amazing the game looks (it does) and you went and did that. Leave that talk for other threads or at least when provoked.

WeebLord262d ago


Welcome to N4G, everything is ammunition to fight an enemy that doesn't really exist.

StormSnooper262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

Oh man this game is really gonna hit the spot! I was aching for a samurai game, looks feiggen awesome! This is why PlayStation never disappoints. Well done.

Damnit, this is awesome
man i freaken love this what a time to be a gamer
and the last part looked like Gameplay

ZaWarudo262d ago

Got some Tenchu vibes from that last bit.

morganfell262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

Looks like its your blade and wits against the Mongols and maybe some pirate factions if this is indeed the historic Tsushima Island. Or maybe the pirate factions will be friendly to you.

rainslacker262d ago


Maybe they'll do it where you can either be friendly or unfriendly to different factions. would be in the vein of Infamous a bit.

morganfell262d ago


Definite possibility. Do xyz and you curry favor. Decide to raid them and there are other skills and items to be gathered that are wholly different than if you had entered into a friendlier relationship.

JBaby343262d ago

That would definitely be cool and would add another dimension to the game as well as giving an inFamous shout.

Samurais? Check. Sucker Punch? Double check. I'm on board, Sucker Punch is one of my favorite devs. Super hyped.

Finallyyyyyyyyy when that sucker punch logo popped up you already know how loud it got in this household.

rainslacker262d ago

A game like this I was thinking was from one of their Japanese studios, and if I had to guess, even the crowd was probably interested, but the reaction at the end was because of the Sucker Punch logo at the end. They're a good dev, and people that follow gaming know it. Couple SP with an interesting concept, a strong trailer, and a snippet of good looking game play brings more applause.

kevnb262d ago

I don’t know what to think without gameplay, but I’m interested.

alb1899262d ago

I'm all in with this one.

rainslacker262d ago

I wasn't expecting anything like this from SP. Can hardly wait to see more, and of course play it. Sony is building up their other developers besides ND and SSM to be absolutely amazing for the future.

Unexpected and it looks fantastic!

MVGeneral262d ago

Mature games like these and last of us, become human, GOW, horizon, uncharted and etc is why I PERSONALLY choose ps4 over other systems like the switch.
Even if switch games get high scores, just means it's good for young and casual audiences. Like Disney movies they get high scores and mass appeal but doesn't mean the movies are better than say pulp fiction, goodfellas, shawshank redemption and etc.

Neonridr262d ago

you'd be surprised at how often Disney movies have adults in mind with jokes, references, etc.

BOTW and Mario didn't score highly because they are for younger or casual audiences, it's because they are great games. Just as a heads up, other systems can have great games besides the PS4. That doesn't mean the games you listed aren't fantastic, but just something that needs to be pointed out.

I love both my Switch and my PS4. The sheer amount of content I have to play between the two is actually starting to become a problem.

NiteX262d ago

When a game gets a good rating it has nothing to do with the audience. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

goldwyncq262d ago

You're most probably still a kid yourself if you seriously think Disney and Nintendo are only for kids.

Ashlen262d ago

What are you too mature to play a Zelda or a Mario game? They get high scores because they are fun to play. I can't believe this comment got so many agrees.

acptest262d ago

This is the stupidest comment I've read today

CodeNameTBW2262d ago

I'm step in on MVGen defense Nintendo games are not as good as the scores they are given. And I have nothing against Nintendo it's just Nintendo now makes games for little kids you guys can get mad down vote this if you want, but it's true.

Back in Gamecube days and before that Nintendo made amazing games (etc. melee) but after wii everything got very kid friendly. And as far as the high scores go. I feel that they are comimg from just old gamers from the 80's era. Who now their own review websites. They get caught in the whole nostalgia and give the game close to or perfect score, simply because it allows them to relive their childhood.

But if you look at Nintendo games like the new zelda and marrio without any favoritism and just take the game as it stands on it's own merits it's just not that great. Good but not perfect by a very long shot.
Sorry Nintendo fans I mean no disrespect.

Nes_Daze262d ago

It's true, not much of a challenge when you're just rehashing the same characters and themes... storylines are not that difficult, but when you're making a sequel to the Last of Us, the margin of error is very thin.

haydenlake262d ago


Your comment is the dumbest thing i've read on this site. You do realize critics are a part of the audience too, just that they represent a professional portion now? Also, there are these things called user scores... what, are those bogus now too? I highly doubt kids and casuals will take the time to log-on IGN, Metacritic and what-not to submit their opinion...

I'm all for every individual listening to No.1, but you cannot deny the opinions of others because you feel games are better on your system.

Jayszen262d ago


The games on Switch while appealing to younger audiences also appeal to adults. I started playing games in the 80's as a teenager and I consider myself a hardcore gamer who is loyal to the Playstation world but who still appreciates good games from other consoles. I still look forward to a new Zelda or Mario game from Nintendo and I am sure there are many more like me. These games do well because they are great games, not because they are aimed at younger or casual audiences. It is a pity there areen't more games like Bayonetta on the Nintendo console but Mario and Zelda make a good change from the likes of The Last of Us, Infamous or God of War on Playstation. Brings out the kid in me!

Very unexpected. It's a beautiful trailer. The subject matter + SP talent really has me excited.

WaqarYounis8262d ago

Game looks better than anythong that has been on the horseshit xbox so far.

IamTylerDurden1262d ago

Perhaps this will be to SP as what Horizon is to GG..? I love Sony's willingness to let their devs branch out and make the games they want.

Xenophon_York262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

Ghost looks phenomenal. Nioh is super great, but it's nice to get a more cinematic take on feudal Japan and samurai battle every once in a while.


Imalwaysright262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

It's an action game and its an open world game. Don't know if it will be as cinematic as other Sony franchises but focus on gameplay and freedom is what I would expect considering how the game was described.

Xenophon_York262d ago

As a final year cinematography student rest assured the footage that was shown was gushing with all the elements that a cinematography strives for.

Pintheshadows262d ago

Agreed. The cinematography shown here is pretty astounding. The tone and colour palette looks gorgeous as well.

rainslacker262d ago

I felt Horizon was pretty cinematic despite being open world. Infamous: SS had a pretty heavy cinematic feel despite being open world.

I don't think the genre is as important as how they put in the cinematic. It's just that a lot of open world games don't bother with doing more cinematic cut-scenes.

AKS262d ago

Imagine how this game will look with HDR. I was thinking about that all the way through. It's packed with vivid and dark colors, precisely where HDR tends to be most impressive.

Xenophon_York262d ago correct you are. Didn't even consider that. Good thinking.

I hope HDR makes the game.

hench07262d ago

Looks in game, amazing.

No date likely means 2019 earliest

morganfell262d ago

They have been at this game for several years already. Infamous Second Son came out in 2014. Don't think it will be 2019.

notachance262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

early 2019 is my bet, they already have GoW, Days Gone, Detroit, Shadow of Colossus and Spiderman confirmed for next year and I'm almost sure they'll empty the release slot anywhere near Red Dead 2, and they usually either empty the release slot on annual October FPS or put some DLC in there, perhaps for GoW/Days Gone.

IMO it's either TLoU 2 holiday 2018 and Ghost early 2019 or TLoU 2 early 2019 and Ghost summer/holiday 2019

oh yeah they still have Death Stranding too don't they?

DarXyde262d ago

I think August 2018 is possible.

That's just me, though.

KwietStorm262d ago

They've been working on it for 3 1/2 years. It wouldn't be surprising if it releases next year.

mkis007262d ago

next year is looking pretty packed at this point, and thats just with taking exclusives into account.

Chocorocket262d ago

nah it's been 3.5 years in the making so the game is a 2018 release

262d ago
UCForce262d ago

This is in game. And This is Sucker Punch. You should know Sucker Punch reputation.

WaqarYounis8262d ago

Let those tears flow, xbox fanboy.

nix262d ago (Edited 262d ago )

i thought by now the country where Waqar is living has been blocked. lol. clearly not. keep the fight alive, Younis.


even if it's cinematic, the trailer was really impressive. i actually thought it was some demon/ufos/monster saying that monologue but it's chinese. so what it means is that it's going to have a nice story. not everything is about GRAPHIX though it looks amazing already and i'm sure that's in-game.
