At its pre-Tokyo Game Show conference today, Sony went heavy on the games, rattling through over 40 titles in around 90 minutes.

Presented by Sony president Atsushi Morita, who took over the job today, and Sony's Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida, the conference fired mainly through previously known titles for PS4 and Vita, although there were a few surprises.

Dragon Quest Heroes for PlayStation 3 and 4 was the big reveal, a new hack and slash title from developer Omega Force. This will be the first Dragon Quest title on a PlayStation platform since 2005, as the franchise has since moved to Nintendo platforms.

Meanwhile, Sony says that Persona 5 from Atlus will launch on PS3 and PS4 in 2015. There's a new Everybody's Golf on the way to PS4, and Capcom says that Resident Evil: BioHazard Revelations 2 is on the way too.

The games continued to come thick and fast, with titles like Phantasy Star Nova, Luminous Arc Infinity, The Crew, Far Cry 4, The Witcher 3 and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain all featured.

While Sony shied away from talking too much about the PS Vita at its various events over the summer, the company said today that over 100 new games are due to launch on the handheld before the end of the current fiscal year.

And finally, the company said that customization themes are on the way to PS4 and Vita, meaning that you'll be able to alter the look of the main menu on your consoles, just as you currently can with the PS3.

You can watch the full Japanese conference at the video above -- note that the show starts at the 4:25 mark.
