Soul Sacrifice demo hits PS Vita on 17th April


Hi, everyone! Soul Sacrifice launches exclusively for PlayStation Vita across Europe from April 30th… Just weeks away! Many of you have been asking about the demo coming to Europe and we’re finally able to address your questions.

First of all, I’m excited to announce that the demo is coming to the EU PlayStation Store on April 17th. Thank you so much for waiting patiently!

As for what you can expect from the Soul Sacrifice demo… It begins from the depths of despair, with you playing as a slave to be sacrificed, owned and imprisoned by a ruthless mage.


The looming promise of certain death is interrupted by the appearance of a mysterious “book.” The tome, inexplicably able to think and speak, introduces itself as “Librom”.


It claims to hold a special power, allowing those who read it to experience what’s written within…

Best we not spoil any more than that! Be sure to try out the Soul Sacrifice demo on April 17th, and don’t forget to check back here when you do, since we’ll have more information about the demo for you!

For now, please check out the first part of a huge interview we did with legendary designer Keiji Inafune about the game!

And don’t forget to pre-order! Not only do you get three exclusive Magic Offerings and two exclusive costumes, but you’ll also get the Japanese voice-over audio pack at no additional cost!

Did you enjoy this?

Looks awesome, will definitely check it out.

Gamesgbkiller 12 April, 2013 @ 4:13 pm   4

Is there a pre-order from the store ?
Great news 🙂

cowbanana 12 April, 2013 @ 4:13 pm   5

Sweet. I’m looking forward to this one.

XDerKleineX 12 April, 2013 @ 4:14 pm   6

Will the demo be available on the german store? Because a lot of demos aren’t for some stupid reason…


How about putting it up for pre-order on the psn store?



Will there be a 3G VITA Bundle with Soul Sacrifice and a Memory Card?
I’m waiting for a Bundle like that.

Yay! Looking forward to play it! But I’m going to buy digital copy, how can I pre-order it, or will I get pre-order bonuses for just buying it on day one, as it was with Gravity Rush?

GamerOfThrone 12 April, 2013 @ 4:26 pm   10

Finally! Been waiting to play this one

I’ve been waiting for this since last month.
it looks better on that picture, but pictures can be edited to perfection.
at least the demo will be available next week.

IrishDude2 12 April, 2013 @ 5:36 pm   19

That looks really cool. Wouldn’t mind trying it out…if I had a Vita. 🙁 Really want to get one but need answers if there will be a price drop this year or not.

ipot_04 12 April, 2013 @ 5:37 pm   20

#1, yes i think it will have the same feature like the JAP demo, the only difference is this one is translated so we can understand it.

MaxiM_82 12 April, 2013 @ 7:37 pm   21

Yesss Time to put another 20 hours into the demo – understanding everything this time :] Gotta level up that character before the pre-ordered copy hits my Vita ;]

MaxiM_82 12 April, 2013 @ 7:39 pm   22

Someone from the Blog staff, please answer me:

I pre-ordered the game from UK, but my local PSN store is PL. Will the DLC work for me? I couldn’t find any store offering pre-order of this game in Poland, and I want those exclusives ;]

tiago-kun 12 April, 2013 @ 8:12 pm   23

Cool, can’t wait to try it out 😀


Seems to be an epic game. I will get the hard copy version though.


this looks like a nice game i will pre order this as a cartrige no more dl for me on the vita untill the mem cards drop from 100 euro to say 60 or something like that

BeAkErOo 12 April, 2013 @ 11:37 pm   27

Aussie pricing and preorder link posted here –


Can’t wait for this game 🙂 You guys should start giving us an option to pre-order a game in PSStore, so that people like me, who go 100% digital, can also get the exclusive DLCs.

BeAkErOo 12 April, 2013 @ 11:58 pm   29

Check your store’s pre-order section, it’s up in at least Australia and France.

flashmozzg_vt 13 April, 2013 @ 1:28 pm   30

Finally! Insta-pre-order!

ChameleonVector 13 April, 2013 @ 4:13 pm   31

Pure nerdgasm! So hyped for this game, love you guys! <3

Silurus 13 April, 2013 @ 6:47 pm   32

Cool looks interesting.

DrCharles09 13 April, 2013 @ 7:29 pm   33

Great news. Can’t wait for this game.

One question: With regards to the pre-order bonus, I have done it via Amazon UK and still no news of any included dlc… even ShopTo says with DLC but nothing else. What retailers are offering this bonus??? anybody knows?

Thank you

Has there been any word about whether online will be region locked or not? All my friends who will be playing this are in America, so if multiplayer is region locked there’s not going to be any point to me buying this, because either I’ll have no friends to play with, or I’ll be forced to miss out on any dlc that gets released if I import.

BeAkErOo 14 April, 2013 @ 8:50 am   35

@34 Hey NightRanma, join us at We’re an Aussie Vita enthusiasts group who are all going to be buying and playing from day one.

CloudBelmont 14 April, 2013 @ 10:29 am   36

Can’t wait to trying and after buying!

monoliet 14 April, 2013 @ 10:42 am   37

Nazar_Ops 14 April, 2013 @ 4:54 pm   38

Doesn’t it come out on 1st may? I guess that applies to physical copies only.


will the multiplayer ignore region? for example R2 game be able to play with R1 and R3 copies? 🙂 been waiting for this game!!

monoliet 16 April, 2013 @ 11:30 am   40


mi preorder :digital = in europe , also on 1st may so rong date on blog !!!!

ipot_04 17 April, 2013 @ 7:27 am   41

#40, Europe is not 1 country only, it has a lot of different European countries.

don’t you think they posted April 30 as the earliest date where some European countries can get it at that date?

April 30 might also be for PSN/SEN release date.

IEvil4livEI 19 April, 2013 @ 4:38 pm   42

Can you guys put a pre-order option in the store so we can get it with the DLCs ? ‘cuz i am so excited for the DLCs and I cannot wait 🙁
