State of Play Announced Right Alongside Nintendo Direct

Sony has announced a new State of Play broadcast set for this week, right alongside the Nintendo Direct revealed earlier today. It will take place at 2pm PT and focus on indie games and third-party titles.

The State of Play is expected to set the stage in part for Tokyo Game Show, which will kick off on September 21. Expect to see Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, Foamstars, and other previously-announced Japanese games during the event.

Sony is also preparing to give Spider-Man 2 one final push ahead of its October 20 release on PS5. Insomniac recently teased a Spider-Man 2 preview event with impressions set to go live on Friday, September 15 8am PT. Our own social media producer Jeffrey Vega was among the attendees.

Sony’s most recent State of Play was held in April and revolved around PlayStation 5 exclusive Final Fantasy 16. Upcoming PS5 games include Insomniac’s Wolverine, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, Konami’s Silent Hill 2 remake, Haven’s Fairgame$, Shift Up’s Stellar Blade, and Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding 2.

Stay tuned to IGN for full coverage of both the State of Play and the Nintendo Direct on what should be a busy day for gaming, including special episodes of both Beyond! and Nintendo Voice Chat.
