PlayStation confirms State of Play event for September 14 in India, Nintendo Direct Tonight


Sony has confirmed a brand new State of Play presentation for tomorrow. The broadcast will last around 20 minutes and promises updates for 10 games, on PS5, PS4 and PS VR2. The event will be streamed live on PlayStation’s official YouTube and Twitch channels on September 14 at 3:30 a.m. IST in India and September 13 at 3:00 p.m. PT in the United States. Additionally, even Nintendo is planning to host a gaming showcase with its Nintendo Direct event.

The announcement comes ahead of the Tokyo Game Show, which kicks off later in the week. Sony remains fairly vague on specifics, but notes that the presentation will feature “great updates from our amazing Japanese partners, plus a few more surprises from developers around the world.” PlayStation’s close partners in crime include Capcom, which confirmed in June that Resident Evil Village was heading to PS VR2. The next-gen VR headset will launch in early 2023, so now would be the perfect time for Sony to show off its potential. Some gameplay footage for the Resident Evil 4 remake is also to be expected – slated for release in March 2023.

Long before that, we have the Nintendo Direct event – ​​a 40-minute presentation, focusing on games launching in winter. The show will stream live on Nintendo’s official YouTube channel on September 13 at 7:30 PM IST in India. For American audiences, that translates to September 13 at 7:00 a.m. PT. As usual, the Japanese publisher hasn’t teased what’s in store for us, leading fans around the world to speculate that the ‘Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ – working title – will be broadcast.

Nintendo has also confirmed that the event will not be broadcast live on its UK YouTube channel, out of respect for the period of national mourning, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. “As a sign of respect during this time of national mourning, we will not be live streaming tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct,” Nintendo UK said. Instead, the publisher will offer a video-on-demand presentation later on the channel at 4:00 p.m. UK time.

In addition, Nintendo’s latest, Splatoon 3, broke video game launch records in Japan. The third iteration of the paint-shooting franchise has reached 3.45 million units sold domestically, nearly doubling the sales of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game launched on September 9 and marks the highest domestic sales level of any Nintendo Switch software – within the first three days.
