The Tokyo Game Show began at Makuhari Messe, just outside of Tokyo in Japan, with a host of exciting new trailers from some of the industry's most hotly anticipated games.

With the rise of the next-generation consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, gamers are seeing a whole new level of quality in their cut scenes as well as the gameplay.

IBTimes UK takes a look at the trailers, which are some of the finest examples of the technology that game studios are working with.

Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV was originally announced under the name Final Fantasy Versus XIII at E3 in 2006 and has had fans of the franchise chomping at the bit ever since.

Until the announcement of the game's rebranding at E3 in 2013, rumours were flying around that the game's creators, Square Enix, were scrapping the title.

The game will appear on the PS4 and Xbox One, although a release date has yet to be revealed.

However, it has been announced that playable demo Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae will be included with each copy of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, which is released on 17 March 2015 in the US and 20 March 2015 in Europe.

Silent Hills

With the recent Gamescom 2014 announcement of a new Silent Hill game, Silent Hills, and its ground-breaking playable teaser trailer (which was titled P.T.), fans of the series have been treated to another trailer a month later.

The game is being published by Konami for the PS4 and is the brainchild of game director Hideo Kojima (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Metal Gear series) and horror director Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth).

Speaking at the Silent Hills stage demonstration via a pre-recorded video, Del Toro said, "The concepts we're discussing, the ideas that we're discussing and the tools that are in play to create Silent Hills are going to render an incredibly intense and an incredibly scary game."

The trailer represents concept gameplay and is not an example of in-game footage. According to reports, the game will be on sale in 2016.

Bloodborne is an exclusive PS4 title by publishers From Software and directed by Japanese game director Hidetaka Miyazaki (Demon's Souls, Dark Souls).

It is a gothic action RPG set in the ancient city of Yharnam, which is cursed with a strange illness that has rendered most of the locals insane.

Bloodborne will be released in Japan on 5 February 2015 and in Europe and North America the following day.

In the single-player, survival-horror game, the protagonist - a veteran police detective investigating the scene of a murder - is knocked unconscious and wakes up in a world where hideous creatures are roaming.
