The team gave a bit of insight on the changes they’ve made for the PlayStation community who’ve experience the first shadow warrior title:

“…During development of Shadow Warrior 2 on PS4 and we spent a lot of time testing how switching from ranged gunplay to close quarters melee combat felt on DualShock 4. It was crucial that players be able to both aim and fire their ranged weapons at a distance and then seamlessly (and quickly) switch to melee weapons to perform brutal slashes and devastating combos at close range.

The team took great care in putting together a weapons selection configuration that took advantage of the DualShock 4’s features to keep the player in control and have all weapons at their disposal easily. The dual thumbsticks, touch pad, and directional pad can all be used in different ways to equip, charge, and execute attacks so that players really get that ninja feel while traversing the levels.

We’re proud of our results and think the PlayStation community will appreciate this attention to detail that is so crucial when playing a white knuckle FPS like Shadow Warrior 2.”

It should be noted that shadow warrior 2 also support 4 player co-op online for the campaign and promises to be non linear for those who may have felt a bit restricted on their last offering. This will allow players to venture off into side missions for level grinding, weapon collection, etc. If they choose so. Shadow Warrior 2 is said to be flying Wild Hog’s biggest game to date and will be available for your PS4’s May 19th,  What do you think PlayStation nation, are you interested in this title are you going to pick up this title on the 19th?

Persona 5 Standard Edition Comes With A Little Extra

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

It’s been almost 4 years since we’ve been introduced to the gaming goodness known as Persona 5. The 5th entry into the series has been highly anticipated among JRPG and PlayStation fans alike. Since it’s  2013 TGS reveal fans have been chomping at the bit to get their hands on this anticipated gem. Although our far-eastern PlayStation family have had their hands on the title since September 2016. Atlus seems to be willing to make good on the wait for the western fans by giving us something special even for those of you who haven’t pre-ordered the limited steel book edition and “Take Your Heart” collectors edition. But have no fear Atlus has you covered.  All standard editions will include a limited edition controller sticker. Which I personally think is really cool by the way.

This will be included in limited amounts of the standard editions I presume. So make sure to check your local listings to get your hands on one of these limited controller skins as supplies may be limited. I must add these skins look pretty darn sweet. As of now word on if these skins are included in any other editions but this provides a nice little incentive for those who may be feeling left out or were unable to snag a steel book or collectors edition. Atlus has also included a tutorial video for those who may need a little bit of help on applying the skins to your Dual-Shock 4 controllers which you can check out the video below:

Persona 5 is only a few short weeks away and released April 4th. Are you interested in picking up this title? Or does this give you incentive, or motivation to purchase this upcoming game?
