The third annual PSX kicked things off today with a packed keynote filled with reveals, new trailers, and surprises.

The show started with a cold open of some gorgeous looking gameplay, that turned out to be the announcement of new Uncharted DLC. Uncharted The Lost Legacy is a standalone episode focused on Nadine and Chloe, that can be played separately from Uncharted 4.


Right after that, Sony’s Shawn Leydan took to the stage to share another huge announcement, as the rumored new Marvel vs Capcom game was confirmed. Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite will be coming sometime in 2017. At the same time, Sony also announced that Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 can be downloaded on PS4 as of today.
