Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that from May 26 to 28, 2017 there will be a closed beta to New Hot Shots Golf (New Minna No Golf).

The big shocker comes in the form of SCI dropping the name Hot Shots Golf in favor of Everybody's Golf.

Participation application tickets will be available to download from today through May 7 via the Japanese PlayStation Store, and you'll get a notification via e-mail on May 11 if you're accepted. The registration period ends on May 7th, and everyone who has been selected to take part in it will find out by May 11th.

"And what better way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise than to launch the next iteration of the series this summer".

Sure, it's dead exciting that Everybody's Golf is coming out on 29th August in America and 30th August in Europe, but the real news story is that Sony are finally retiring the Hot Shots branding in the US. You can check out a recent trailer showing the game in action below.
