Wired Hands On: Making Ghoulish Choices in PS Vita Soul Sacrifice

There’s a lot riding on Soul Sacrifice, the upcoming PlayStation Vita title shown to the public at Tokyo Game Show last weekend.

The Vita needs a breakout hit now that the million-selling PSP series Monster Hunter has departed for Nintendo hardware. And while a number of third-party studios are working on Monster Hunter-style multiplayer action games, as seen at Sony’s Tokyo press conference last week, they are hedging their bets by putting those games on both the Vita and Sony’s aging (but cheaper and more popular) PSP.

Soul Sacrifice, on the other hand, is a Vita exclusive due out in Japan next spring with a Western release to follow. Co-developed by Sony’s internal studio and Marvelous AQL, it’s a multiplayer action game with both local and online co-op play. It also has one of Japan’s highest-profile game designers, Keiji Inafune, on board. (PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice)
