The new Hot Shots Golf is dropping the Hot Shots name

New, comments

Everybody golf NOW!

The next entry in Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Clap Hanz’s Hot Shots Golf series is coming to PlayStation 4 this August, but it won’t carry the Hot Shots name. Instead, Sony will release the title as Everybody’s Golf.

That’s what Hot Shots Golf has been called in Japan — “Minna no Golf” — and Europe for the past 20 years, and while it’s not clear why Sony is making the change stateside, the important thing is that the game is finally coming out. Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida first announced the PS4 game — which was previously known as New Hot Shots Golf — back in 2014.

Everybody’s Golf will come with a number of online features and non-golfing side activities, Sony said on the PlayStation Blog, including “fishing, buggy racing and treasure hunting in the open world environment.”

Everybody’s Golf costs $39.99 and will be released on Aug. 29. PS4 owners who pre-order the game will get an Everybody’s Golf avatar, a 20th anniversary golf course, a dynamic theme and a handful of cosmetic items for your golfer.

The Everybody’s Golf series launched on the original PlayStation in 1997. The most recent entry in the franchise, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, was released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in 2012.
