Its been a good while since Sony dropped a Nintendo Direct-style collection of trailers and reveals, but that drought was finally broken last night! A few tasty and filling reveals were on the table, ending with a main course of next-gen upgrades for one of the best remakes in recent memory. Here’s a look then, at everything that Sony had on its plate. Also why am I so hungry all of a sudden?
Final Fantasy VII Remake is getting a PS5 upgrade on June 10
The full title will be Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, which is a name that’s approaching Kingdom Hearts levels of silly. Anyway, it’ll add new story scenarios to introduce Yuffie and the new character Sonon, improved textures, faster load times, better visual effects, and higher frame rates. If you already own Final Fantasy VII Remake on PS4, the visual upgrades will be free. Otherwise be prepared to fork out $70 for the full experience or $10 for Yuffie’s story DLC.
Deathloop gets a new gameplay trailer
The hot new game headed to Sony from Xbox is still looking fantastic. Here’s a new trailer, that I’m adding to my pile.

Returnal got a new trailer
Housemarque’s latest game still has a very silly name, but I’m down to see what one of the studio’s behind some of the best games is capable of when Returnal lands on April 30.
