Project Field bridges the physical and digital worlds using a special pad that connects to smartphones and tablets

Sony Japan is taking physical card games to a whole new level, launching them into the world of digital. Project Field uses a special card pad that wirelessly connects to smartphones and tablets. When playing with compatible cards, the pad can pick up actions like which card is placed on it or if a card is turned sideways, displaying them, along with their effects, on the connected screen. The aim is to enhance the experience of playing a traditional card game.

A Yokai Watch title was the first to be announced for the Project Field platform, which is currently only scheduled for release in Japan.
