Today at a pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that a new Hot Shots Golf game is in the works for the PlayStation 4. This will be the first game in the popular golf series made for the new console, and Yoshida says it will offer an open-world gameplay experience. That’s about all we know for now, but expect more details to be unveiled when the Tokyo Game Show kicks off on September 18.
The world is long overdue for a new Hot Shots Golf experience. There hasn’t been a game made just for consoles since Hot Shots Golf 5 teed-off on the PS3 back in 2008. The last game in the series, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, was released in 2011 for the Vita, but found its way to the PS3 as a port last year.
