Tokyo Game Show 2018 is in full swing, and that means trailers and new looks at some of the biggest upcoming releases on the calendar. The Japanese industry event has given us footage from several of the most highly anticipated games on the horizon, some of which are coming in the next few months.
So sit back, grab yourself some popcorn (or a non-corn-based snack if you’d prefer), and settle in for the biggest trailers from TGS so far.
Devil May Cry 5
Dante and Nero are joined by returning characters Trish and Lady in a blistering new trailer for Devil May Cry 5. Not only do we get to see Dante and Nero slice-and-dice their way through a selection of demons, there’s a glimpse of a mysterious new playable character, V, right at the end!
The new-look Raphael is unveiled in this new trailer. As unpredictable and lethal as ever, a selection of the master fencer’s moves and combos are on display in the clips, showing him doing away with several of the game’s roster in quick fashion.
Resident Evil 2 Remake
Capcom showcased a new trailer for Resident Evil 2’s story, teasing the intersecting storylines of main characters Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy, and finally giving us a look at the remake’s new and improved Ada Wong.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown
This new trailer is as close the flight combat series gets to being coy. There’s quick shots of the action that looks as thrilling as ever but the real highlights are the environments, which are particularly beautiful this time around.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition
Unsurprisingly, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is as charming as ever in this first look at gameplay from the upcoming remaster. If you missed this cult classic when it first launched on the GameCube, this Switch version is the perfect opportunity to see what all the fuss is about.
The anime-based fighter adds a new character, Yusuke Urameshi from YuYu Hakushi, and gives us a look at the speed and intensity that will be on offer. The pace is absolutely blistering and pulling off moves like the energy blast at the end is sure to be very satisfying.
World of Final Fantasy Maxima
The adorable World of Final Fantasy is getting a re-release with expanded content and gameplay, teased in this trailer. The cutesy riff on the classic series was one of the highlights of 2016, and the second visit to Grymoire is sure to be just as pleasing.
Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain
The new look at Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain focuses on what the series is good at – big action involving lots of bug-eyed aliens. The cheesy dialog is also out in force and, from the looks of things, so too are the ridiculous guns. We’ll take it!
