    Big PS4 Announcement Coming at a Game Show from Major Developer According to Kadokawa Honcho

    Any guesses? Sounds like it's going to be a title that will move PS4's in Japan.

    Eh, Monster Hunter? Nothing tops charts as much as that over there.

    My guess would be that Persona 5 will move to the PS4.

    On second thought it might be XV or KH III considering those two games are on the list of the most wanted games in Japan based on what Famitsu said if im not mistaken.

    My initial thought was Monster Hunter, but Tri's relatively weaker performance on the Wii, and its subsequent major success when ported to the 3DS seems to suggest that Capcom would rather keep the series on handhelds.

    Ah, I dunno. It doesn't specifically state that it has to be an unannounced game. If it is something unannounced, the things that can rupture Japan would be something like Dragon Quest XI for PS4, which I'm not betting any money on. Then watch as Square-Enix refuse to localise it.

    EDIT: It's probably going to be nothing that exciting.

    so basically the 'BIG' PS4 game will either be Capcom's Monster Hunter or Square's Final Fantasy...... Or an entirely other game we did not expect. Either way, this sums it down better.

    Those aren't the only two big titles in Japan.

    I never said those were the only two big titles but there is the possibility of those being the big 'ps4' announcement.
    Maybe the Last Guardian :O

    I don't really see it being Monster Hunter. Think Nintendo has that on lock. They know damn well how important that game is in Japan as it's a big reason for PSP's success.

    I don't think The Last Guardian is big enough to move PS4's in Japan.

    Is Dragon Quest a title that can move PS4's? While it sounds 3rd party, can it be a large-scale game from Japan Studio?

    Dragon Quest is right up there with Monster Hunter. In fact, DQXI is suppose to be a console title this time around.

    Dragon Quest is one of - if not the - most popular video game franchises in Japan. And it's from Square Enix btw, not Japan Studio. So yes, it is 3rd party. =)

    Is Persona 5 highly demanded by the Japanese gamers?

    Yup.

    Well, looking at Famitsu's most wanted games lists, presuming for a moment that it is representative of Japan, Persona 5's consistently been either near the top, or at the top. Not sure whether they'd agree to moving it exclusively to the PS4 though, because I'd imagine Atlus would have cold feet at the thought of exchanging a platform with a relatively large install base for one that's thin on the ground.

    But someone will have to take that risk, and fire the initiative shot to help move PS4 units.
