The PlayStation Experience Southeast Asia is due to take place tomorrow, 5th August, 2017 in Malaysia.

Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV adds extra mechanics and lots of new creatures to encounter and attempt to catch, some of whom are truly terrifying monsters suitable for a Final Fantasy title.
