Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita: Inafune’s Next Game is Coming to North America

Posted by Kumi Yuasa // Producer, SCEA -
Hello everyone! I’ve got some great news. A few weeks ago, Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita was announced in Japan and I’m sure many of you are wondering about the status of a North American release. I’m happy to announce that Soul Sacrifice is coming to North America! The legendary Keiji Inafune of Comcept is leading this project with MarvelousAQL, with Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama working on the music and soundtrack. The theme of this game is “reality blended experience.” You may wonder what that means, exactly. In celebration of the announcement in North America, Inafune-san has kindly sent us a description along with his comments. (PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice)

Another game that makes me happy to own a Vita

Honestly, it's got an interesting premise... that, IIRC, has already been done--and recently--but I'm not really sure what else it has going for it.

It's definitely on my watch list, but it's not nearly as appealing to me as, say, Gravity Rush, which has that bold visual style and unique gameplay elements going for it.

(Even if the demo was only 30 seconds long).

I wish the GR demo was longer... I have beaten it like... 20 times now, can't wait for the game.

That said SS is near the top of my list, I love Coop games.

Gravity Rush is better than I thought it would be. It takes a little longer to get the platinum, story is really good and has some twists (I can't spoil anything), gameplay has some unique elements, the graphics in this game are stunning and there is more (that I can't tell you guys, because again, I don't want to spoil anything).

It's 100x better than the demo.

Also, the demo is really short, but it's 15 hours (or more) if you want platinum (this is a good time even for PS3 games).

As for Soul Sacrifice, It's really good to know it's coming to the West. I will buy it for sure.

I completely agree with your statement because the question is will the game play be something totally new & different like Gravity Rush.

I have yet to see & prove this game becuse the gameplay reminds me of Phantasy Star Online Dreamcast.

Judging from games like Dead Rising or Mega Man 9 Inafune have cool & advanced ideas but more of evolution rather than revolution. They are good ideas but not ground breaking.

I can appreciate the fact not one of my posts had been flagged,
It is (kind of) an inappropriate comment to make, but it captured that anxious emotion of wanting games on the VITA so bad, that the thought of them coming . . .

". . . Whoa!! WHAT IS THIS FEELING OF EUPHORIA AND FLUSH OVER MY ENTIRE BODY? . . *_* . . . My goooodness . . ."

". . hng . HNG . . . . . . HHHHNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGG!!&q uot;

"My god."

calm down, let's not be premature here

Yeah, yeah. More importantly that newly registered domain name by SCEA "Forsaken Souls" MUST be something else then.

LordMe  +   1223d ago
That's what I have been trying to figure out. But I have got nothing aside from Sony trying to carry on Demons Souls on their own to compete with Dark Souls....

Indeed. Sony owns the Demon's Souls IP so it's only natural for them to build on it. Only problem is that From is most likely working on another multiplat game and I'm not really sure if I want a Demon's Souls 2/Forsaken Souls if it's not made by From. Arrgghh.
Ddouble  +   1223d ago
It's the same game. Forsaken Souls was the WIP title unfortunately.

looks badass

Cant wait for this and Gravity Rush. Vitas picking up some steam with the Assassins Creed 3 spin off and (hopefully) the MOH vita game. E3s going to be great.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1223d ago
Yes! I am so excited for this one! I actually just got done playing some Loco Roco 2 on my Vita. :) It's only $8 on the store. My internet was out, so I couldn't touch Resistance online. -_-

I don't want to say I love my Vita more than my PS3, but it's a very close race.
CaptainSheep  +   1223d ago
Awesome. Just awesome. If commercialized enough, this game could really boost Vita sales.
TheColbertinator  +   1223d ago
Totally digging how it looks

Ofcourse this is all before e3 even sets in, funny thing is some of these game we didn't and don't even have to wait a whole year for. Yet all i hear is how the vita needs games.
