Styx: Shards of Darkness Sneaks Up on PS4 in 2016

Styx it to the man

Styx: Master of Shadows, the surprisingly well-received stealth-'em-up from Cyanide Studios, will get a sequel in 2016.

Press X to Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th on PS4

Unhappy campers

Pull down your hockey mask and grab the nearest cleaver: Friday the 13th is coming to the PlayStation 4 in Fall 2016. But there's a catch: you'll need to help fund it on Kickstarter.

Game Boy's Final Fantasy Adventure Gets a PS Vita Remake

Oh Mana

Final Fantasy Adventure, a Game Boy title that originally released all the way back in 1991, has a curious history – namely because it's not technically a Final Fantasy game at all and is actually the predecessor to Super Nintendo classic, Secret of Mana. Either way, a remake is in development for the PlayStation Vita and smartphones,...

Resident Evil Umbrella Corps Gets Competitive on PS4

Dead to rights

Between all of the Resident Evil remasters and the surprisingly strong Resident Evil Revelations 2, you may be forgiven for thinking that Capcom's flagship horror franchise is returning to its roots.

To the point

Project Morpheus is set to release in 2016, so it probably deserves a proper name. Fortunately, platform holder Sony announced during its pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference earlier today that the upcoming peripheral will be known as PlayStation VR when it hits store shelves.
