Project Morpheus is set to release in 2016, so it probably deserves a proper name.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires Will Conquer Vita Along with All of Its DLC

At least in Japan

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires launched earlier this year in the West on PlayStation 4. The hack and slasher adds a hint of strategy and plenty of role-playing to Omega Force's typical formula, but it was perhaps a surprise that the release never made it to Vita - particularly in Japan, and especially since Koei Tecmo seems to hold...

Stories: The Hidden Path Is a PS4 Action RPG All About Player Choice

Sounds foxy

Nicely designed anthropomorphic characters, airships, role-playing game elements, and player choice combine to make Stories: The Hidden Path seem like a pretty intriguing PlayStation 4 title.
