Sony's State of Play Shows Latest Entry in Valkyrie Series and More

9 Mar 2022

Sony’s latest State of Play showcase gave us a first look at several new games as well as an update coming for Housemarque’s Returnal. Titles from Square Enix ended up taking center-stage during the broadcast with four games from the Japanese publisher being shown.

Valkyrie Elysium

The latest installment in the Valkyrie series was one of two “one more thing” announcements at the end of the show. In addition to the new trailer below, Square Enix also released a blog post with further detail on the new installment. Valkyrie Elysium will release for PS5, PS4 and Steam later this year.

The DioField Chronicle

After Triangle Strategy’s release only a few days ago, Square Enix is already looking to release a new strategy RPG. The DioField Chronicle will release for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam later this year. Both a trailer and a blog post give a first look into this new IP.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin

With its release fast approaching on March 18th, Stranger of Paradise not only got a new trailer, but also announced a new free demo downloadable tonight on both the PlayStation and the Microsoft store. According to Square Enix’s blog post, any progress made in the demo can be carried over into the full game.


After last weeks announcement that Forspoken had been delayed to an October release, Square Enix shared a new two minute gameplay trailer.

Ghostwire: Tokyo

Another highly anticipated game releasing this month got its launch trailer showing a mix of gameplay and cutscenes.


While classic Capcom fans might’ve been hopeful for a Dino Crisis revival, what the developer actually revealed was a game called Exoprimal, a futuristic action co-op game where five players battle dinosaurs in giant mechs called Exosuits.

Gundam Evolution

And in case Exoprimal wasn’t enough mech action, the free-to-play FPS first teased last year is making its way to PC and console later this year.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection

Konami’s collection of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games releases later this year on PS4 and PS5 as well as Nintendo Switch, XBox Series X|S, and Steam. The collection will contain a whopping thirteen titles while also providing online multiplayer for four of them, including Turtles in Time.
