In addition, KOEI TECMO America will reveal an unannounced, top-secret title at the show, currently in development by Omega Force.

In development exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Nioh will be playable with compelling, never-before-seen content in addition to all of the offerings of its recent Alpha Demo.

Nioh

[PlayStation®4 / 2016] – In the dark, fantasy action RPG Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Players will face off against other samurai in epic sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samurai’s skills, patience, and strategy. Nioh not only incorporates iconic elements from Japanese folklore such as samurai and supernatural creatures—the game also offers the exhilaration of an authentic samurai sword fight straight from Team NINJA. Nioh is guaranteed to challenge players in a way that makes every mission feel earned and their accomplishments worthwhile.

Nioh is headed to E3 with more of what everyone loved about the recent Alpha Demo on PlayStation 4: more high-intensity combat, new weapons, never before seen characters, deadlier enemies and a whole lot of challenging gameplay. All Alpha Demo content will be available for those who have never tried the title.

Scheduled for launch in 2016, Nioh is in development exclusively for the PS4™ system. For more news and information on Nioh, please visit the official website at http://teamninja-studio.com/nioh/us and Like Nioh on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Niohofficial. This title has not yet been rated by the ESRB, but a rating of “M for Mature” is expected.

 

Attack on Titan

[PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Steam®, PlayStation®Vita, PlayStation®3 / August 30, 2016] – An epic action game based on the anime by the same name, Attack on Titan incorporates the claustrophobic atmosphere and iconic, fast-paced battle action of one of the most celebrated new anime IPs of the last few years. Set in a land where three gigantic walls have been built around humanity’s only known settlements for protection from the towering, eerily human-like Titans, three young heroes Eren, Mikasa and Armin witness the end of 100 years of peace. Humanity is once again threatened after a massive Titan breaks down one of the outer walls, and the heroes must fight off and discover the mystery behind the invading creatures. Players will engage in high-flying, high-octane combat as they utilize the trademark Omni-Directional Mobility Gear and ultra-sharp blades to repel the fearsome Titans.

Playable on the PS4™ system for the first time in North America, and making its worldwide hands-on debut for Xbox One, Attack on Titan brings the most shocking, courageous and exhilarating moments of the world-renowned anime to life. Join the Scout Regiment and protect humanity from the Titans!

Scheduled for launch on August 30, 2016, Attack on Titan will be available on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and available digitally on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita handheld system and PC via Steam®.

May 10, 2016 – With Mass Effect™: Andromeda, our team at BioWare™ is exploring how far they can take this beloved franchise. Yes, we’re building the best of what we all love about Mass Effect – amazing stories, characters and fun third-person shooter combat – and bringing them along with us on the expedition to Andromeda. But we’re also excited to be introducing new features and ways you can enjoy a Mass Effect game.

More Freedom: One of our biggest ambitions is to give players an unprecedented level of freedom for a Mass Effect experience –where you’ll go, how you’ll get there, and how you’ll play.

New Uncharted Worlds: We’re leaving the Milky Way behind and headed to Andromeda, where we’ll meet new allies, confront new enemies, and explore fascinating new worlds.

The Next Great Mass Effect Experience: Mass Effect: Andromeda will be the first Mass Effect game for today’s consoles and the first built on the Frostbite engine. We’re pushing the technology to deliver visuals, story, and gameplay that have never been done in franchise history.

As we’ve been playing the game at the studio recently, it’s showing us that we’re taking the game in the right direction. But we also know we need the right amount of time to make sure we deliver everything the game can be and should be – that’s our commitment from all of us to all of you. Because of that, Mass Effect: Andromeda will now ship in early 2017. We can’t wait to show you how far we’re all going to go. We’ll see you at the EA PLAY press conference on June 12, with an update.

Thank you for your patience and support.
