Ghost of Tsushima: From Concept to Reveal
3:30pm Saturday, December 9
It’s been a month since we announced our newest title, Ghost of Tsushima. Here at Sucker Punch, we’ve watched so many reaction videos and read many of your comments with smiles on our faces, so we thought PSX was a great opportunity to share a little more with you all.
Join us on Saturday at 3:30pm as Nate Fox (Creative Director), Jason Connell (Creative/Art Director), Billy Harper (Animation Director), Ryuhei Katami (Associate Producer, Sony Interactive Entertainment) and moderator Brian Altano (IGN) discuss how we approached making the debut trailer and what inspired us to make this game. We’ll share epic concept art that’s driving the tone and visuals for the game, and share a little about our reference trips to Japan and working with new team members that are helping make Ghost of Tsushima even better. Also be sure to stop by our signing session after the panel and come say hi. Stay tuned for more info on time and location.

The Last of Us Part II: Meet the Cast
6:30pm Saturday, December 9
Join Naughty Dog and the cast of The Last of Us Part II as they discuss the making of the cutscene teaser trailer that was revealed just a few short weeks ago at Paris Games Week. Director and writer, Neil Druckmann, co-writer Halley Gross, and key members of the game’s cast discuss the writing process, casting, performance capture, and more. For those attending the event, there will also be a signing session following the panel.
(Editors Opinion: Well I’ve never been a panel guy it mainly would depend on the game but each I’ve attended PSX I’ve found at least one Panel that grabs my attention last year it was the Horizon panel. This year it will probably be Uncharted Anniversary Celebration. With Hopes to meet the great Nolan North! It would be nice for PlayStation and Naughty Dog to possibly hold a tournament of sorts for Uncharted during the anniversary for more serious players like myself and others who would more than likely be in attendance for PSX but one can only hope. Overall the panels seem pretty solid I will also be on the look out for the Sucker Punch Ghost of Tsushima Panel as I’m very eager to get my hands on this title! At any rate PSX is a great event to attend to get a taste of industry events like these on a not so crowded level in comparison to E3 so to speak.)
