Soul Sacrifice: Release date and pre-order extras revealed
Combining frantic real-time combat, a thrilling sense of scale, smartly interwoven cooperative play and meaningful character customisation – not to mention contributions from gaming legends like designer Keiji Inafune and composer Yasunori Mitsuda – we believe Soul Sacrifice is one of the most exciting titles on the PS Vita release slate.
For weeks now, you’ve been asking for more information about the game’s Western release and finally we can answer those questions!
Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita launches in stores and via PlayStation Network across Europe on 1st May 2013! We’re not quite ready to reveal our final box art just yet, but rest assured that the studio is working on something really epic that we look forward to sharing with you very soon!
It includes two unique costumes with which players can customise their character…
…and three magic items to aid players in battle:
- Spirits’ Flamepike – Shards of the spear provided by Fire spirits, unleashing a five hit combo attack with heat effects
- Spirits’ Blightstone – Explosive stones with poison effects provided by the spirits
- Spirits’ Fulgurwood – Root provided by the Thunder spirits. Tracks enemies on the ground and attacks with thunders spell
And there’s more! Do you prefer to play with Japanese audio tracks wherever possible? Then you might want to pre-order…
Reserve Soul Sacrifice and, in addition to the in-game costume and magic bundle, you’ll also receive the Japanese voice-over pack for free. This pack will be sold separately, but the only way to get it right at launch for no added cost is to pre-order.
Thrilled to finally be able to reveal a release date to European gamers, Project Lead Keiji Inafune had this to say:
“I’m excited that we are finally able to announce the release date of Soul Sacrifice.
