Titles include Kingdom Under Fire II, Firefall, Journey, Hohokum , Saint Seiya: Soldier’s Soul, Transformers: Devastation, Just Dance 2015, F1 2015, Knights of Valour, Warframe, CastleStorm, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, Project Cars, Tokiden: Kiwami, RIDE, MotoGP 15, The Legend of Heroes: Sora no Kiseki Evolution, Ys, Street Fighter V, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Mighty No.9, King of WuShu, Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, Child of Light, Tearaway Unfolded, Urban Trial Freestyle, Ratchet and Clank, Chinese Paladin 6 (The Legend of Sword and Fairy 6), Sword Art Online: Lost Song, Deemo and many more, including 11 developed by major Chinese studios.
57 of those titles will be playable on the show floor starting tomorrow.
The house of PlayStation also announced by way of Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida that Project Morpheus will be released in China.
The Chinese market is also getting two PS4 bundles, one with a laser-etched HDD Drive cover and Tokiden: Kiwami, the other will feature Just Dance 2015 and a T-shirt.
Among the titles prominently featured in the conference were Journey, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Firefall, Kingdom Under Fire II, Street Fighter 5, and 3 on 3 Freestyle, a self-explanatory freestyle basketball game for PS4 by Korean developer Joycity. We also learn that Warframe will be published locally by Perfect World Entertainment.
Sony’s Darling indies will also be present in full force, with a new crowdfunding initiative to support small local developers.
Below you can check out a recording of the conference, even if watching it can prove difficult (depending on your location) due to the terribly slow Youku servers. You can also see pictures of the line-up and of relevant moments of the event.
