The 2015 Game Awards have come and gone. While some of you may agree or disagree with the winners, I know there were a few video game announcement trailers featured on the PlayStation Experience that got me excited for what’s headed on the PS4.
PS4 video game announcement trailers I’m Excited about.
Ace Combat 7
The last game released in this dogfighting series was on the PlayStation 3 called, Ace Combat Infinity in 2014.
Namco Bandai announced that AC7 will have PlayStation VR features along with a campaign mode and online multiplayer. I speculate that AC Infiniti was Namco Bandai testing the waters with online multiplayer. Hopefully, they got what they needed to make a great online experience.
According to Forbes.com, the game will be developed using the Unreal Engine 4. I for one expect some great indoor flying experience. I also hope they bring back the replays with the arrow trails. I’ve always enjoyed that for some reason.
There’s no official release date yet. However, you can sign up on their official website if you want the latest news and updates on this title.
Ni no Kuni II – Revenant Kingdom
From the developers that help make, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Level-5 announced Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.
The first fantastic RPG game, Ni no Kuni was developed by Level-5 in collaboration with Studio Ghibli.
Far Cry Primal
Unlike past Far Cry games, instead of the current age, Primal takes us to the stone age. This could be a huge success or a big flop. One thing that Ubisoft has been working on was animal AI. It will be interesting to see how this works out.
The official release date on their website is set for February 23rd, 2016. You can also keep up to date with their latest news and download wallpapers, avatars and more.
Final Fantasy VII remake
Hear that? That’s the sounds of millions of fans rejoicing that Square-Enix is finally remaking FF VII. Of course the news was announced at E3, however, this time, we got to see a trailer. The big news is that the game is going to be released as multiple episodes. Perhaps like they did with, Life is Strange. I can only speculate if this is a good thing.
The other big news is that the game will be using the Unreal Engine 4. Well, watch the trailer above and judge for yourself how well it works out.
No word on the official release date yet.

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, a heart-warming tale of a young boy named Oliver, who embarks on a journey into a parallel world in an attempt to bring his mother back from the dead. Along the way, Oliver makes new friends and adopts many of the wonderful creatures that inhabit the world, raising them to battle other creatures on his behalf as he takes on formidable enemies. Developed by LEVEL-5 with animation by the legendary Studio Ghibli, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch combines beautiful animated visuals, masterful storytelling and a sweeping score into an epic role-playing adventure like no other. This is the first game of the series and it’s available now.
Welcome to the Stone Age, a time of omnipresent danger and limitless adventure, where giant woolly mammoths and saber-toothed tigers rule the Earth, and humanity is at the bottom of the food chain. As the last survivor of your tribe, you will learn to craft a deadly arsenal, fend off fierce predators, and outsmart enemies to conquer Oros and save mankind.
Note: Official release date – February 23, 2016
The story of Final Fantasy VII centers around a former solider named Cloud Strife, who joins forces with Avalanche, a group of resistance fighters, to take down an evil mega-corporation known as Shinra. (The fate of the world hangs in the balance, of course.)
Note: Amazon has the release date set at December 31, 2016. This is most likely a placeholder date until the official date is announced by Square-Enix. Also, Square-Enix has decided to release this game by episodes, so this is most likely the first chapter/episode of the series.
