PS Vita’s Soul Sacrifice: Leviathan and Ghost Mode Revealed

Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita

In my last post, I explained that monsters in the world of PS Vita’s Soul Sacrifice are what have become of humans who succumbed to darkness, using magic according to their desire. Today, I’m pleased to reveal a new monster, “Leviathan,” and to share its backstory.

Meet Leviathan

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, there were two twin princes. The older twin excelled at everything, and the younger one failed at just as much. The two were so different that it was a wonder that the same blood flowed through their veins. It was like pairing up a giant and a dwarf. The younger brother grew up with a severe inferiority complex and developed an extremely dark personality. He started to enjoy collecting ferocious animals, one in particular being a crocodile from another kingdom. He put the crocodile in a cage, where he tormented it. It was the only time he could ever feel strong.

Years went by, and it was finally time for the heir to take the throne. Of course, the chosen heir was none other than the eldest of the twin brothers. Jealous, the younger prince stormed off to his room. He sat there, staring at his crocodile. “If only I could get the crocodile to kill my brother…” he thought. Just then a strange voice resonated in the room and the prince could feel his body drown in magic…

Live on in Ghost Mode

In addition to revealing this fearsome new monster, I’m excited to share a key new element to the game’s multiplayer experience: Ghost Mode. The co-op multiplayer mode of Soul Sacrifice is not just about playing offense or defense. You will use yourself and allies as a catalyst for magic, and truly battle together. At times, you use a magic to stop time so your allies can attack. Other times, you can choose to help aid your dying friends with your healing power. There are many choices available to you and your victory depends on your decisions. And it doesn’t end if you fall during a co-op battle. With our Ghost Mode, you will become a “ghost” and continue to aid your allies. Players that have become ghosts are able to openly observe the statuses of the enemies and ally members. You can strengthen your team mates or make the enemies vulnerable by touching them on the screen. So even after you die, you can keep aiding your party and continue the co-op battle until the end with your friends.

Atlas a decent Vita game. Any chance for the release date?

Wouldn’t this make the game easier ? We want a challenge.. at least I do want it. I’m looking forward to it anyway.

This just keeps getting better.

any info on Near usage?

I’m definitely looking forward to this

@supersmith2500
Come on there are some nice game already even if not plenty, i really enjoy Uncharted, Rayman and right now Gravity rush which is pretty sweet. There are also MGS and many more games but sure this game is a fresh IP and is looking pretty great. Vita needs more games. I just love my vita to much so the more games the better for it to succeed :)

@Syrus_
I also wish the Vita succeeds as well but there are some few good games worth playing on while some are just garbage such as Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified. It should get some good games next year. There’s QForce, Sly, Killzone which will put COD on Vita to shame and even more.

Day one!

Game looks great can’t wait to play it.
Any chance of a release date being announced soon

When Youtube App for Vita in Portugal?

this together with killzone , sly and ratchet will shut all those non believers up. PS vita is one of those consoles that comes out once INA life time. I never had so much fun as I’m having these days with the PS vita. Sony, you are going to outsell 3ds one day as long as you just keep releasing games that exclusive to ps vita. THANK YOU!!!!!
