Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

Oooh you're an eager bunch! (Hello!)

Martin Robinson

weebleman: Lets get straight in with it Martin. How longs this on for

20 minutes I believe. Which is pleasingly short.

Martin Robinson

Kami: Vagrant Story remaster. Yes I fully intend to WILL this thing into existence!

Let's will it into existence together!

Martin Robinson

This_way_out: Seeing that Gradius art got me excited until I came into the article and read the words... So cruel.

I share your pain. And yet I did this to myself...

Martin Robinson

I'm pootling around in my shed right now - I'll be back around 9.45 to kick this off in earnest.

Martin Robinson

And I might have been *drinking* by that point, so who knows what'll happen.

Martin Robinson

Kami: @Miyamotosan - Elden Ring. Controversial opinion; I love it, but I don't see this BOTW stuff people keep harping on about. if anything, kind of reminds me more of Skyrim.

I totally agree, but because I'm an annoying sort I'm also going to say it reminds me a lot of Xenoblade - in a very good way!

Martin Robinson

Who's to say it won't happen?

Martin Robinson

(It won't happen.)

Martin Robinson

Realistically, it's best to keep expectations in check.

Martin Robinson

Sony's been doing these State of Plays a few weeks before its big launches recently - we got one before Horizon Forbidden West and one before Gran Turismo 7.

Martin Robinson

In a few weeks we've the PlayStation 5 console exclusive Ghostwire Tokyo - so expect that to be a focus at some point.

Martin Robinson

There'll be Resident Evil news, I'm sure - whether that's more for Village, or more likely a glimpse at the Resident Evil 4 remake.

Martin Robinson

Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires came out recently as well and honestly I'd be well up for 18 of the 20 minutes being about that.

Martin Robinson

If Capcom is there with Resident Evil news, I wonder if it'll show up with either Pragmata or - and this is unlikely - Street Fighter 6.

Martin Robinson

Oh, and I forgot - Square Enix should be a presence too, given the emphasis on Japanese partners.

Martin Robinson

Perhaps that's in the shape of the recently delayed Forspoken which could do with a decent showing, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 or - and this is a long shot but let's hope and pray - Final Fantasy 16.

Martin Robinson

I haven't been this excited for a Final Fantasy since... Well, since 13 if I'm being honest. And that didn't turn out too great.

Martin Robinson

Though I love Final Fantasy 13 really.

Martin Robinson

Final Fantasy 16, though, looks outrageous.

Martin Robinson

All the expertise and character of Final Fantasy 14 in something that might be a bit more approachable for people like me who are intimidated by MMOs.

Martin Robinson

I shouldn't get carried away, given that's now likely a 2023 release and so unlikely to be seen for a while.

Martin Robinson

Can't blame me for hoping tho.

Martin Robinson

Kami: The only good bit about FF13 was Lightning and they STILL found a way to make me hate her in Lightning Returns.

And the battle theme! Don't forget the battle theme!

Martin Robinson

All this and I forgot about Sony's own Japanese studios.

Martin Robinson

I'd be up for some details on what's next for Gran Turismo 7 - though the next big beat for that would most likely be alongside PSVR2, which won't be featuring tonight.

Martin Robinson

What if we got wind of a new Astrobot though!

Martin Robinson

And good lord Bloodborne news would be good. Why settle for a PS5 version - why not hope for a sequel!

Martin Robinson

But also honestly a 60fps version of the PS4 original would be more than enough to make me happy.

Martin Robinson

SeanBeansGravyBoat: Ridge Racer V 4K remaster or GTFO

YES FARKIN PLZ.

Martin Robinson

spamdangled: In a just world they would apologise for, and reverse, their totally unjustified game price increase to £70. It's bloody absurd, as is their claim that game prices haven't increased over the years when they demonstrably have, or that game publishers are suffering when they are making record profits.

Would be a strong opener for sure.

Martin Robinson

MrZappa: Anything from FROM!

It almost seems too soon, and yet!

Martin Robinson

Here we go!

Martin Robinson

tomphillipsEG: KNACK 3

Don't.

Martin Robinson

This looks like Pragmata to me.

Martin Robinson

I'm probably wrong.

Martin Robinson

Lovely robobutt there, whatever this is.

Martin Robinson

Was Pragmata a new Dino Crisis all along?

Martin Robinson

Good lord the RE Engine looks amazing. Imagine what Street Fighter is going to look like in this!

Martin Robinson

Exoprimal!

Martin Robinson

I guess that's what was Pragmata? And is a Dino Crisis thing? Lord knows. It might even be a new Lost Planet at the same time - it looked interesting all the same.

Martin Robinson

Daigohji: Dino Crisis themed Anthem...

Oh don't say Anthem. As soon as you did you totally killed the vibe!

Martin Robinson

The more I see of Ghostwire Tokyo the more intrigued I am.

Martin Robinson

For some reason every time I see it I can't stop thinking of Maken X.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, Ghostwire Tokyo is out soon!

Martin Robinson

Stranger of Paradise is also out soon!

Martin Robinson

And there's another demo - they're certainly not shy showing this one off.

Martin Robinson

Forspoken here, trying to prove it's not the mess it looked last time out. And doing a pretty good job of it to be fair.

Martin Robinson

It looks more like Dragon's Dogma this time out anyway, which is good enough for me.

Martin Robinson

YES! GUNDAM!

Martin Robinson

Not that I know anything about Gundam.

Martin Robinson

Like I didn't know there was a Gundam Overwatch.

Martin Robinson

I kind of want to play it.

Martin Robinson

I just know I really like big robots.

Martin Robinson

And this 6v6 shooter Gundam Evolution has loads of big robots.

Martin Robinson

A Konami Turtles collection, which I'm also up for.

Martin Robinson

I'm loving this so much.

Martin Robinson

More kaiju action in this fun arcade versus game!

Martin Robinson

Hell yeah.

Martin Robinson

And now... JoJo's Bizarre Adventure?

Martin Robinson

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure! Capcom doing mad stuff with dinosaurs! Offbeat supernatural first-person adventures se in Tokyo! I feel like I'm back in the mid-noughties and everything is just fine and dandy.

Martin Robinson

This intriguing 2D samurai game - Trek to Yomi - has been shown before, and it continues to impress.

Martin Robinson

Also, it's out this spring.

Martin Robinson

Some more Returnal now? That's reason to be happy.

Martin Robinson

Co-op!

Martin Robinson

Yeah you're right. It's just that whole period was a bit of a blur for me so I get confused about it easily!

Martin Robinson

Co-op and survival coming to Returnal in the free expansion Ascension this March.

Martin Robinson

I deffo didn't spell that right.

Martin Robinson

But shhhh this new Square Enix game looks like my shit.

Martin Robinson

Indeed, and that excites me.

Martin Robinson

It's basically Final Fantasy Tactics done in an XCOM style?

Martin Robinson

Or to be more direct, it's a new Final Fantasy Tactics.

Martin Robinson

Please let Matsuno be involved.

Martin Robinson

DioField Chronicle, rather than a straight-up new FFT. But we know what it really is.

Martin Robinson

And now - is this a new Infinite Undiscovery or Last Remnant?

Martin Robinson

I think when I said mid-noughties vibes earlier this kind of thing and the dino robot game was what I was referring to.

Martin Robinson

Valkyrie Elysium.

Martin Robinson

Crazy and quite generic looking stuff with indecipherable names, basically.

Martin Robinson

The kind of crap I go wild for.

Martin Robinson

Well, I enjoyed that.

Martin Robinson

Everyone else here at EG was essentially saying that was second-rate TGS scraps.

Martin Robinson

Which, again, is the kind of crap I go wild for.

Martin Robinson

I enjoyed myself - I hope you did too!

Martin Robinson

Thanks for joining us - it's been lovely, as ever - and see you again soon!
