RE4 remake, Street Fighter 6, FF XVI highlight State of Play

Sony PlayStation’s latest State of Play event came out swinging with the announcement of Resident Evil 4 remake. It then ended on a high note, revealing the release date of Final Fantasy XVI. But that’s not all. There were plenty of exciting announcements in between. Here’s a rundown:

Resident Evil 4

A Resident Evil 4 remake is coming to the PlayStation 5. The game catches players up with Leon Kennedy, six few years removed from the events in Resident Evil 2.

The game has been remade for the for the current generation of console. And if the trailer was anything to go by, it looks freakin’ awesome. Resident Evil 4 is scheduled to release on March 24, 2023 and will be available only on the PS5.

Street Fighter 6

Capcom is looking to bounce back after a less than stellar release of the Street Fighter 5. The trailer showcased the usual versus fighting we know and love. But it also showed some free roaming areas which feels new for the franchise.

Arcade Mode, online matches, Training Mode, and other staples are all present. New to this edition are the World Tour and Battle Hub modes. Street Fighter 6 will be available in 2023 on the PS5 and PS4.

Final Fantasy XVI

There’s been plenty of buzz surrounding the next mainline Final Fantasy game. Now, rumors can be put to rest with the reveal of the combat trailer and a release date.

The trailer showed flashy, action combat involving expected characters. What’s eye-popping though is a battle involving Eikons (or Guardian Force, Summons, depending on where you’re coming from). It appears the game will feature actual battles between Ifrit, Bahamut, Shiva, and more instead of the usual single-attack cinematic.

Final Fantasy XVI will be available on the PS5 and is coming Summer 2023.


PlayStation promised updates on their latest VR efforts and they did not disappoint. There are plenty of games to look forward to in the Horizon.
