Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced the India Hero Project, which, akin to the China Hero Project, will be an incubator program to spot and support local game developers, ensuring their titles reach a global audience.
Not many specifics were stated regarding this new initiative, but as one would expect, this is being done to build the PlayStation brand’s diversity further. In particular, “mentorship, training, and project-based investment” will enhance the efficacy of Sony’s reach to the Indian market. Additionally, PlayStation aims to “lower the barrier of entry” so no talent gets overlooked.
An in-depth FAQ was also published for all prospective applicants to peruse and confirm if their ambitions and plans align with the India Hero Project. Of course, all applicants must be India-based video game developers and PlayStation-registered developers.
To be honest, this new initiative is incredibly exciting since the potential for great new games is endless. After all, the China Hero Project has been producing a game many of us are on our hands and knees for, Lost Soul Aside. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what titles are born from this new project.
