Wow!

That push in January and February alone is insane.
But this is the pre season guys, so settle down.

I'm always amused at how different the titles they list are between the English and Japanese release:

『ペルソナ5』(株式会社アトラス)、『ストリートファイターV』(株式会社カプコン)、『METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN』(株式会社コナミデジタルエンタテインメント)、『FINAL FANTASY XV』(株式会社スクウェア・エニックス)、『Bloodborne』、『The Tomorrow Children(トゥモロー チルドレン)』、『Until Dawn - 惨劇の山荘 –』(SCE WWS)、またインディーズ(独立系)開発者様から『Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee : New'n tasty』(OddWorld Inhabitants Inc.)、『アスタブリード』(株式会社アクティブゲーミングメディア)、『メゾン・ド・魔王』(株式会社メビウス)をはじめとして、魅力的なタイトルを続々と発売する予定です
Persona 5, Street Fighter 5, MGS5, FFXV, Bloodborne, etc.
