The #PlayStation 4 does not lack for console exclusives, as there are well over 40 games scheduled to be released over the next eighteen months. When it comes to Japanese visual novels or RPGs, there is only one console in the market, although quite a few of these titles fail to make the jump to the West.

For this list, we will take a quick look at three highly anticipated titles coming out only on the PlayStation 4 in the next year. An English version needs to be confirmed, or at-least expected.

'Yakuza 6: Song of Life'

Sega's "#Yakuza" franchise is currently on fire. Triggered by "Yakuza O's" success, there are multiple games in development which will also be released worldwide.

Although we are excited for the remake of the second game of the series, the one we really cannot wait for is "Yakuza 6."

Released in Japan at the end of 2016, it was met with an overwhelmingly positive reception and sold extremely well. The Western version is set to be released in March 2018.

There has never been a better time to get into the franchise. Each new title has managed to improve upon the previous one, so "Yakuza 6" should be the biggest and most addictive one yet. For those who have resisted taking the plunge, we recommend picking up "Yakuza 0," as it is the ideal entry point into the franchise and simply a fantastic game.

'Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal'

This package offers a remake of the original two "#Senran Kagura" games released on the Nintendo 3DS. Although the franchise is mostly known for its more recent 3D hack-and-slash titles, it started off as a side-scrolling beat 'em up.

"Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal" re-imagines "Senran Kagura Burst" and "Skirting Shadows" as full 3D action titles, with updated visuals, and new moves. From the little that we have seen, the "Burst" remake is similar to the recent "Estival Versus."

Known for their over-the-top fan-service, this is a franchise which constantly delivers fun and stylistic gameplay. The cast is well-rounded, with each fighter offering their own style of combat.

'The Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia'

Video game adaptations of popular anime series tend to be hit or miss, but this one is looking pretty darn good. Developed by Bandai Namco, only a few screenshots and a handful of short trailers are available, but so far so good.

The animation looks fantastic, and we are interested to try out the story mode. Although part of us is expecting it to be similar to a Musou title, the fact they have yet to show that type of gameplay means we could be in for something different.
