Hi everyone! We are thrilled to debut the latest trailer for Smelter and announce it’s coming to PlayStation 4 on April 22. Smelter is a throwback to 16-bit classics such as Actraiser and Mega Man combining 2D real-time strategy with explosive side-scrolling action stages. 

Smelter is a retro-inspired platforming-strategy hybrid, out April 22 on PS4

In Smelter, players take the role of Eve, who embarks on a journey to find Adam and meets a mysterious being who goes by the name “Smelter.” After some quick convincing, Eve fuses with Smelter, gaining incredible power, and agrees to help Smelter expand his empire in a joint effort to discover Adam’s whereabouts and take back what’s theirs. The game unfolds in a rotation between strategy and action stages, punctuated by cinematic sequences, all wrapped up in a wacky narrative.

Players take control of Smelter in a top-down strategic conquest as he and his Zirm forces attempt to expand his empire by completing quests and taking on an onslaught of enemies determined to stop him.

Smelter can also command his obedient troops to expand territory, build structures, and unleash attack units against enemy monsters in various regions. Gameplay is designed with shooting and command-driven interfaces, adding modern-day tutorials to assist both veteran gamers and those new to the genre.

Happy Thursday! Spring Training is winding down and the 2021 Major League Baseball season is right around the corner. Everyone on our team is excited to show you the first extended look at MLB The Show 21. We’ve got so much more to reveal, including a special legends trailer coming out in a few weeks.

Ready up with MLB The Show 21 gameplay details

We at San Diego Studio are very excited for the release of MLB The Show 21, our first PlayStation 5 and first multi-platform (with cross play*) iteration of The Show. We’ve been working on a lot of great new features for all our fans, returning and new. Here are just a few of the new additions to look forward to with MLB The Show 21’s gameplay:

The friendliest Show yet

Learn the ropes so you, too, can make impressive off-the-wall catches and notch up your gameplay. We have added a route to ball indicator to help you in the field, improved the throw accuracy meter to help you show off your cannon, and have built in assists to make jumps and dives more intuitive. New to MLB The Show, Casual mode teaches you all the gameplay mechanics of The Show while letting you hit dingers to your heart’s content.

Two-way player

For the first time in MLB The Show, your Ballplayer can be a two-way player, expanding flexibility in player position options. Enjoy a revamped player progression system that emphasizes adaptability and variety. Finally use your centralized ballplayer in Road to the Show, online in Diamond Dynasty, Programs and Moments.

Unreal load times and the power of PS5 

With PS5’s faster load times, you’ll reach the login screen the moment you launch the game and 

be on the battlefield before you know it. Say goodbye to long load times (and sadly the chance to mentally prepare your first move before the match’s start!). See an example below: 

We’ve taken the opportunity to enhance the visuals of Auto Chess. Next-level visuals will bring the world of Auto Chess to life with ultra-clear definition and seamlessly smooth graphics. 

PlayStation exclusive chess player – Date Masamune

Another exclusive for PlayStation players – acquire the rare chess player Date Masamune from the in-game store or PlayStation Store. There is just so much awesome PlayStation-exclusive DLC just waiting to be downloaded for Auto Chess.

Make your move when Auto Chess arrives on PS5 March 30.
