Finishing off the line-up for the Playstation Vita in North America is Dragons Crown. There is a chance that players may also receive the Playstation 3 version of this title, although Sony doesn't appear to be completely certain about this.

Dragon’s Crown allows up to four players to team up online to clear out monster-ridden dungeons, discover precious treasure, and destroy awe-inspiring bosses.
