To kick things off for PlayStation at Paris Games Week, a sequel to Guacamelee was announced. Luchadore, platforming, and chickens are just a part of what was shown. Originally released in 2013, Guacamelee became a large success for DrinkBox Studios and was ported to multiple system, so if you like Metroidvania style games will brawler mechanics, check it out before the sequel releases soon…ish.
 

 
The next game shown off was The Hong Kong Massacre. Not much was shown, but it looks reminiscent of Hotline Miami, except with a more realistic take on a top down shooter. This game was announced quite a long time ago, but now it has been officially announced to be on PS4.

Moving swiftly along, puzzle and platforming fans will be happy to hear about The Gardens Between. Another artistic game whose story is told through the world, not through dialogue. The game looks to be based around 2 playable characters who will work together to solve puzzles and progress through different areas. The game will be available in late 2018.
 

 
And, just before the end of the pre-show, we got a look at Oure. If you have ever wanted to transform into a dragon, here is your golden opportunity. The game seems to be similar to games like Abzu and Journey, at least artistically. The world consists on other dragons that aren’t doing their job, so it is up to you to “convince” them to start again. The game will be available on the PlayStation Store later today so you can fulfill all your dragon transformation dreams.

As an actual end to the pre-show, a trailer was shown for Spelunky 2. The trailer didn’t show any gameplay but, it eluded to this time we will be exploring space, or the clouds maybe. And we will no longer be playing as the male spelunker from the first game, we will be playing as what looks like his daughter. There was no release date given for Spelunky 2, but we will be sure to update you with more information as it comes.
