Sony Japan Reveals New IP, Panopticon
Sony might want to steal some of Microsoft’s thunder come the 21st of May. Sony Japan has revealed a new IP, Panopticon, via a rather lengthy teaser trailer. The official website contains a countdown which will end on the day of the next Xbox reveal. Coincidence?
Yeah probably, but it’s not like Sony don’t know what’s happening on that day either. Panopticon looks like a new sci-fi adventure title, but it’s hard to guess what type of game it will be from the trailer alone. But hell, I’m not a massive Japanese games fan, but the trailer above is rather spectacular.

What we can gather from it is that society has no marked citizens with barcodes that seem to float above their heads. It looks like a rather dystopian glimpse of the future, in England no less, excluding the massive beasts that destroy cities of course.
Curiously, no platforms or release dates were shown in the trailer, but the countdown suggests that we’ll have a lot more information regarding this title rather soon.
Until then, just drool over the gorgeous cel-shaded visuals. They’re rather amazing if you ask me.
