As the largest indie game festival in Japan, BitSummit 7 Spirits will have on display well over 100 games. Sony is contributing quite generously to the number, since the company plans to showcase the following PlayStation 4 games during the festival:

A handful of PlayStation VR games will also be on display during BitSummit 7. They are listed below:
- Budget Cuts (Neat Corp)

Games are not the only thing Sony will contribute to the festival, either. SIE’s President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida will attend the event. On June 1st, Yoshida and Wattam Game Designer Keita Takahashi are scheduled to deliver a half-hour talk, during which the two will discuss Wattam’s conception, among other topics. Those unable to attend can catch a livestream of the talk on Famitsu’s YouTube channel. In addition, IGN Japan will stream the event on its YouTube channel.
Tickets for BitSummit 7 Spirits are still on sale via the festival’s official website. A one day ticket costs 2,000 yen, while a ticket for both days costs 3,000 yen. Children under the age of 12 can get in free of charge.
