It is always great to know what’s coming next when you are part of the gaming space, as it allows players to plan their purchases ahead of time and schedule enough time to enjoy the latest and greatest the medium has to offer. For fans of the PlayStation ecosystem, Sony has finally revealed its hand for the rest of 2023 and beyond with the latest PlayStation Showcase, and there are plenty of things to get excited about.

The PlayStation 5 will be getting quite a significant number of big titles, as does the PlayStation VR 2 platform. Here’s everything to look forward to that was revealed at this latest showing.

PlayStation Showcase 2023 Highlights

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

While there was no release date revealed for the highly anticipated Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 by Insomniac Games, what we did get was more than 10 minutes of gameplay with both Peter Parker and Miles Morales. The new Symbiote Suit looked great in action, and we finally got to see Kraven the Hunter join the rogue’s gallery in this take on the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.

Project Q & Accessories

At the PlayStation Showcase, Sony also took the chance to show off an additional device for those that wanna get their dose of the PS5 aside from the TV. Nicknamed Project Q, this game streaming device will stream games on the console to its 8-inch screen and let players use a controller attachment that looks just like a DualSense controller.

Ther is also new gaming earbuds coming from Sony, but no more details were shared about it. We reckon Sony will be talking more about Project Q really soon.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Remake / Metal Gear Solid Δ

Konami has finally done it; a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is in the works, and fret not; despite it being at the PlayStation Showcase, it will also be coming to Xbox and PC. Titled Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater (Δ is Delta), the announcement did not show any gameplay, but it did include a teaser that eventually revealed everyone’s favourite Snake. Alongside the remake, there is also the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1, which includes the modern trilogy and is coming to PlayStation 5 later this fall.

Final Fantasy XVI

More Final Fantasy XVI goodness comes our way, with a new story trailer that dived deeper into the upcoming war that will unfold on 22 June. We see main protagonist Clive interacting with a variety of people in the land of Valisthea, and of course, lots and lots of monsters that we will inevitably take down.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage

The next entry in Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series, Mirage, will be coming this 12 October for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, as well as Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Alongside the date reveal, the gameplay trailer also showed off a new feature called Assassin’s Focus, which allows for multi-target assassination.

Alan Wake 2

It is official, following a slip-up by the voice actor behind the tortured artist, we now know that Alan Wake 2 will arrive this 17 October. At the PlayStation Showcase, the trailer showed Wake’s return together with a new playable character, Saga Anderson, all while the darkness encroaches.

Street Fighter 6

With the brawler set to release next week, Capcom joined the festivities with a trailer about the story mode that will be a part of Street Fighter 6. For those unaware, players will create their own fighters and embark on a globetrotting tour to take on franchise favourites and new additions to the roster.
