Zone Of The Enders: 2nd Runner PS4 Port With PSVR Gameplay Announced

In the middle of Sony's PlayStation VR montage during their Tokyo Game Show conference was Konami's announcement of a Zone of the Enders: 2nd Runner port to PlayStation 4.

The new version, which is called the very wordy ANUBIS Zone of the Enders: M∀RS, boasts a number of improvements, such as 4K graphics, new sound design, and seemingly optional PlayStation VR sections.

The title is being co-developed by Cygames, the studio behind the wildly successful mobile title, Granblue Fantasy. The original Zone of the Enders: 2nd Runner released in 2003, but this version is due out in Spring 2018 in Japan.

New Shadow Of The Colossus Remake Trailer

A new trailer for the remake of 2005's seminal Shadow of the Colossus was shown at Sony's TGS 2017 conference.

The trailer shows the level of improved graphical detail in the remake while set against the tired and sad world of the game. Various colossi die while the Wanderer looks on and dodges the occasional hit. It is not the most exciting trailer, but it definitely captures the feel of Shadow of the Colossus well.

The trailer ends with a 2018 release window, which could be a long wait. Check out the trailer below.

During Sony's TGS presentation, the publisher and Square Enix revealed a teaser for a new game called Left Alive. The teaser was short and CGI, revealing gunshots peppering an apartment hallway, followed by an explosion that showcased a seemingly post-apocalyptic cityscape.

We didn't see much else except some credits on the project, including news that Yoji Shinkawa, who did environmental and character artwork for both Metal Gear Solid and Zone of Enders, is working on the project as a character designer. Other credits include producer Shinji Hashimoto (Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts) and director Toshifumi Nabeshima (Armored Core)

Final Fantasy IX For PlayStation 4 Rated By European Ratings Board

The Pan European Game Information (PEGI) Board has produced a listing for Final Fantasy IX on PlayStation 4.

This listing, assuming it is accurate, is more than likely for a port of the PC version to the PS4, analogous to when Final Fantasy VII was released and announced at Sony's PSX conference in 2015. If the rating is appearing publicly now, then Tokyo Games Show is a good bet for a similar announcement and release schedule.

Originally released in 2000, Final Fantasy IX was part of a trio of Final Fantasy game announcements, revealed alongside Final Fantasy X and XI and heralded as the series throwback, Final Fantasy IX was filled with references to older games in the series. It is also one of the most well-loved Final Fantasy titles, partly due to its simple and heart-warming story helping cement it as a relic stuck in time compared to the series more modern cyber-hybrid aesthetic.

Fortnite Briefly Allowed PlayStation 4 And Xbox One Crossplay

Fortnite Briefly Allowed PlayStation 4 And Xbox One Crossplay

While crossplay between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One should be a technical hurdle, it seems the only thing stopping it was a will rather than a way, as Epic Games has accidentally proven with Fortnite.

As reported by Eurogamer, posters on Reddit for Epic Games' world-building shooter Fortnite began getting curious about the various tags they were seeing in-game. One user noticed that a space in a name on PS4, which should not be possible, as spaces are not permitted in PSN usernames. After some investigation, the posters confirmed it was an Xbox tag.

After that discovery, tons of other reports came pouring in from people who had noticed tags, arranged to play together, or just wanted to test it out. What made this more complicated is that both the Xbox One and PS4 versions can crossplay with PC, but not each other, so it took video evidence of Xbox and PS4 players playing together using that hardware to convince skeptics.
