Everything Featured At Playstation State of Play March 2022
I never knew I needed a ‘Mech Vs Dinosaur’ game in my life until today. Exoprimal is a new game being released by CAPCOM. The game will be coming out for both PS4 and PS5 sometime in 2023. This trailer looks really great. The characters seem like a ragtag group of heroes similar to the main cast of The Matrix series. I have no idea what the world would be like if a black hole opened and thousands of dinosaurs dropped out, but I’m willing to give it a go.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle Remaster Trailer
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle was a game from Bandai Namco Entertainment that was released in 2014. It was recently released that it would be getting a remastered version in 2022.
I love how this game has a cartoon/comic book style that looks modernized, yet is still reminiscent of its predecessors such as the Marvel Vs CAPCOM series. The game boasts 50 playable characters on launch and will be released on PS4 and PS5 in Fall of 2022.

Trek To Yomi
Trek To Yomi is a new game from Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital coming out in the Spring of 2022. The game is created as a love letter to Akira Kurisawa samurai films. I can’t wait to play this game. It looks awesome.
I thought the combat in this trailer looked really great. It kind of has the feel of old sidescrolling brawlers while also having an updated modern aesthetic. I also loved the black and white color scheme of the game. It kind of looks like Limbo-meets-Katana Zero.

The DioField Chronicle
The DioField Chronicle is a new tactical strategy RPG from Square Enix. This is the first game to feature Square Enix’s ‘Real-Time Tactical Battle’ mechanics system. I am not a huge fan of RTS or tactical strategy games. However, this trailer really piqued my interest. It looks like the game is heavily story-driven. It kind of reminded me of older character-based tactical games like Warcraft 3.
Valkyrie Elysium Trailer
‘In an unjust world, what will you choose?’
A new Valkyrie game is on the horizon! This game describes itself as being an ‘action brawler with Soulslike combat’. Honestly, that’s exactly what the trailer looked like as well.
