This past Saturday was the 2015 Playstation Experience Keynote, and this past Thursday was the 2015 Game awards, and both events have yielded some big news. I’ll summarize the bigger items in this post, so click after the jump to get the lowdown for what you’ll be looking forward to playing the rest of this year and in 2016.

New Mortal Kombat X Characters

At the Game Awards, Netherream Studios revealed that a new Kombat Pack was coming to MKX, featuring 4 new characters; Bo Rai Cho, the alcoholic martial arts master introduced in Mortal Kombat 5, Tri-Borg, a fusion of Sektor, Cyrax, and Smoke, Letherface, star of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre films, and a Xenomorph from the aliens franchise. The pack was given a 2016 release date.

Psychonauts 2 to be Crowdfunded

The sequel to one of the best games that no one ever played is hopefully getting a sequel thanks to crowdfunding. Double Fine has a page set up at Fig where people can donate to the eventual sequel which is expected to be released on PS4, Xbox One, PC, OSX, and Linux. As of this writing, it’s a little over halfway to its goal of 3.3 million dollars. In related news, the Playstation VR will be getting a Psychonauts spin-off entitled Psychonauts: In The Rhombus of Ruin. Double Fine was also working on remastered versions of its classics Day of the Tentacle and Full Throttle, both coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2016.

Final New SFV Character Revealed

The final Street Fighter V character was revealed at yesterday’s Playstation Experience Keynote. F.A.N.G, an odd-looking man with poison attacks looks to be taking Sagat’s place among M. Bison and his grandmasters. Capcom also revealed the dlc characters who will be arriving post-launch:

The Rest

The Dreamcast cult classic Rez will be coming to Playstation VR, and the 2013 RPG Ni No Kuni will be getting a sequel. More of Uncharted 4 was shown, particularly the game’s Mass Effect style branching dialogue options along with Nadine Ross, a new adversary for Nathaniel Drake. Destiny owners will be able to participate in the Sparrow Racing League from this Tuesday December 8 until December 29th.

Sony also showed off two new games, Brutal and What Remains of Edith Finch. The former is an action RPG made feom textures constructed by ASCII art while the latter is an exploration horror game in which the title character explores her ancestral home attempting to learn the fate of the members of her family, most of whom died young, and why she is the last one left. Sega announced that Yakuza 5 will be available as a digital download on PS3 this Tuesday, while Yakuza 0 will be making its way west next year. While there is still no word on when PS2 emulation was coming to PS3, several classic PS2 games are available on PS4, including Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Dark Cloud, and Rogue Galaxy. Finally, where would we be without a trailer from the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 remake?

By the way, the original Playstation 1 version of FF7 is available on the PS4 by way of the PSN store. That should tide you over for now.
