The Last Guardian was once slated to release on PS3 but after years of Limbo it has once again been confirmed that the game is not dead and very much alive! It is on it’s way to the PS4 tentatively for 2016 though we don’t know when exactly it’s set to release just yet. As of now it is still slated for 2016. Whether it comes this year or not we will see. Let’s hope that we at can get word of a definite release in 2017 at best.
The Star Ocean franchise was once rumored to be in limbo itself as the Developer Tri-Ace was purchased in 2015 by Nepro Japan and was once rumored to make games only for mobile. Thankfully that wasn’t fully the case we are just a few week away from the release of the next Star Ocean title known as : Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness which releases this month June 28th for PS4 and PS3 (in Japan only)
Another Great JRPG to cleanse the pallet of shooters and the TDM itch of the summer: I Am Setsuna. This game looks absolutely beautiful visually and the music is definitely a breath of fresh air. Fans of the turn based JRPG play style and fans of titles like Chrono Trigger will appreciate this title as it’s set to release this summer for PS4, PS Vita and Steam on July 19th.
Not to be forgotten or left behind. The solid and respected franchise fighter: King of Fighter XIV is set to release this summer and providing a variety of over 50 fighters day one. Not many that Main line fighters this gen such as Street Fighter V or Mortal Kombat XL can boast over. This fighter has grown a legacy over the years and will be exclusive to PlayStation this gen as it release late summer for PS4 on August 23rd
Another fighter set to release this summer is something a bit “Bizarre” that’s right JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven. There is a demo available now of this title via the US PSN Store. I definitely recommend giving it a try to see if you may or may not like it. It’s a standout colorful title that is worth the look if you want to try something different, or just a fan of the anime series, Dio would definitely approve!
Next up is a title for the Monster Hunter fans. One thing about PlayStation is you have a wide range of variety. So with titles like God Eater 2: Rage Burst this is one of those titles that express that idea of variety. This is a title that has a great anime as well as fun game play. The visuals are pretty close to the anime style that fans of the genre may come to appreciate. This is also a title that has a not one but two games releasing this summer. God Eater: Resurrection is set to release this month June 28th and God Eater 2: Rage Burst is set to release August 30th both of which are titles to look out for PS4. Not to mention when you pre-order God Eater 2: Rage Burst digitally via PSN you will get God Eater Resurrection free digitally as well that’s great for a 60$ value.
June is a very busy month for PlayStation Gamers, that many may not even realize. Another title on it’s way to PS4 and PC by way of developer Capcom. Set in the Resident Evil Universe is Umbrella Corps. This 3rd person shooter made it’s debut just recently via Sony’s 2015 Tokyo Game Show event. Though the initial presentation gave a cheesy impression due to it attempt to appeal to the MLG crowd. Many who have tried this game has given it praise for being a fun title. Capcom although a bit quiet on this title with limited promo for this game. It’s a title that could be worth checking out and possibly a sleeper hit. Umbrella Corps hits PSN and Steam this summer on June 28th.
If you’re looking to take a bit of the Nostalgic route. Or if you didn’t know about this gem during the PS2 days. This just may be one you may want to revisit.

Whichever mode you choose, you’ll be able to fully experience the intricate plots and breathtaking art. Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is out now it has since released this week as of June 7th.
And last but certainly not least is the beautiful and lush fighter. Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator. This is the 5th main (17th overall) installment in the Guilty Gear series, Guilty Gear Xrd was developed using Unreal Engine 3, with cel-shaded graphics in place of the series traditional hand drawn sprites. It’s truly a beautifully developed game. It’s currently out now for PS4, and PS3 and also supports one of the first fighters to support Cross-Gen Play. The feature alone stands out and allows PS4 players to fight against previous gen owners of the PS3.
