Their recent appearance at ChinaJoy 2019 was a fruitful one indeed, with the announcement of the new China Hero Project program. This is an incubation program, which sees PlayStation aiding various budding game devs in China and across Asia with their upcoming titles.
Of the games that have been borne under the China Hero Project include the likes of:
Convallaria by Chengdu LoongForce Technology
Anno Mutationem by Beijing ThinkingStars Technology
InNightmare by YiXing Network Technology
AI Limit by Palm Pioneer
Evotinction by Spikewave Game
Interestingly, Lost Soul Aside by UltiZero Games, arguably one of the most-hyped projects in the list, was noticeably absent from the lineup in favour of focusing on development. The action-RPG had quite the reception when it was first unveiled by creator Yang Bing back in 2016.
The exact release dates for these games remains to be seen, but expect more announcements to come from the China Hero Project’s Twitter.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
