This State of Play will focus on video games developed in Japan.
We had been waiting for quite some time for Sony to decide to announce a new event, and we are currently quite lacking in information about the new projects of this company. For this reason, and before the silence of the Japanese company, the rumors did not stop coming out, placing PlayStation events (both State of Play and PlayStation Showcase) for practically all possible dates. Interestingly, it was already expected that we would receive a Showcase like the year 2021, during the month of September, or even during the month of October, but now we have received confirmation that today, September 13, 2022, we can see a new State of Play.
As far as we know, this State of Play will start at 23:59 (Spanish peninsular time) on September 13, 2022, and has an estimated duration of 20 minutes. We have also learned that at that time We will see 10 PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR2 video gamesbut we have also known a detail that can ruin our highest expectations.
“Focused on our Japanese partners”
You probably know Tom Henderson, and he is one of the best-known insiders in the video game industry, being the one who has managed to filter a large number of well-known projects. Now, after the official announcement of the State of Play for today, has spoken on Twitter to lower our expectations.
Specifically, he commented that this State of Play would be focused on Japanese video games, so we would not see any of the great exclusive PlayStation video games. Also, take advantage of this tweet to remember that we will see these titles in an upcoming Showcase that, as we have said, has been rumored for quite some time.
This State of Play is primarily focused on PlayStation’s Japanese partners. So I wouldn’t expect the likes of God of War, Spider-Man 2, and Wolverine here. Those will come at a later date cue the showcase rumors again

It is necessary to mention that this is not something that Tom Henderson has invented, or that he has totally leaked, and that is that the official PlayStation Twitter account confirmed that this State of Play would be focused on Japanese video games. Of course, the official account did not confirm that we will not see our own titles, but it did make it clear that in those 20 minutes we will mainly see “Big Announcements From Your Amazing Japanese Partners“, a phrase that leaves no room for error.
