Sony Teasing “Big Announcements” from Japanese Devs at E3 2017

Sony is teasing some “big announcements” from Japanese game developers at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.

The news comes via Sony Interactive Entertainment America president and CEO Shawn Layden, who let out a slight tease for next week’s trade show.

Layden pointed to various Japanese developers returning to consoles, noting big releases like NieR: Automata, Nioh, Persona 5, and more.

“That’s super important for us,” Layden said to Time. “I think a lot of Japanese developers lost their way chasing the mobile games yen, if you will, but they’re coming back to console in a major way. And speaking of, we’ll have some big announcements at E3 in that precise vein.”

Layden also confirmed that Sony’s press conference this year will follow the same format, meaning it will be more for showcasing games and less of a traditional press conference.
