The PS5 doesn’t release for over a month, but Japanese YouTube creator Pocky Sweets was one lucky player who already got his hands on one, and he showcased new gameplay in a video. Not only do we see an extended look at some of the system’s launch games, but we also get to see just how massive the console really is.
Placed vertically in the video, the YouTube Gaming team had the console on top of a table so it would be easier to see, but we’re also not entirely sure it would fit in the entertainment center that housed the television. You may need to move some things around to get your system to fit in your setup.
The first game on display in the video is Astro’s Playroom, which comes pre-installed on every PS5. The 3D platformer is designed to showcase the controller’s unique features, and its structure looks very similar to Super Mario 64. The version we’ll get won’t be a simple demo: It’s actually a full game that will take several hours to complete.
Pocky Sweets also got to try out Godfall, another launch game that was the first game explicitly announced for PS5. The “looter-slasher” looks very impressive running on the console, with particle effects flying as each sword strike lands. Instead of just charging into a fight, you can also toss your shield like Captain America to draw enemies into an advantageous position.
Another YouTuber, Sanninshow, got to try out Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition. We didn’t get to see any Vergil gameplay in this footage, but it did show off just how smooth the action will be on the more powerful system. On PS5, the DualSense controller will also give you resistance via the triggers when Nero is revving up his Red Queen sword.
The PlayStation 5 releases on November 12, two days after Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. All games mentioned here will be available at launch, with Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition also releasing on Xbox Series X/S.
