It’s a golf series of many names, called Minna No Golf in Japan, translated literally to Everybody’s Golf in the EU, but then rebranded as Hot Shots Golf in America. Whatever the name, Sony’s own golf game is making the jump to PlayStation 4, as announced at the SCEJA Press Conference this morning.
Going by the working title or codename “New Mingol Project” Shuhei Yoshida took to the stage to explain how the series has always tried to evolve to make use of each successive console’s strengths. So while we can expect lush and verdant greens on the PS4, thanks to its much greater graphical prowess, there will also be an increased focus on social play.
Though Sony won’t really be elaborating on this until some time early next year, Shuhei hinted at open world play and spoke of being able to develop a golf resort with your friends, which would seemingly open the door for user created golf courses within the game.
