Sony kicked off its PlayStation Japan press conference with a song from musician Tofubeats, featuring Ryo-Z and Pes from Japanese hip hop group Rip Slyme, and it was, for better or worse, one of the highlights of today's presentation. Even if you don't speak Japanese, it's probably worth a listen.
Ostensibly a promotional highlight reel for the new, slimmer PlayStation 4 model, Ryo-Z and Pes rap their way through the console's upcoming lineup, deftly switching from rhymes about chocobo racing in Final Fantasy 15 to no scope headshots in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to Kazuma Kiryu's antics in Yakuza 6. It's not a particularly quick journey either, clocking in at four minutes, 22 seconds.
But if you've ever wanted to hear The Last Guardian's Trico rhymed with "here we go," with the occasional airhorn peppered in, now's your chance.
