Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita

Soul Sacrifice is finally available in America today. I hope most of you will get the game and start playing as soon as possible.

For fans who would like to purchase the game via PlayStation Network, we’re pleased to finally confirm that — for a limited time — North American PSN purchasers will also receive the exclusive pre-order offerings that we’ve been promoting for physical reservations of the game:

  • Two Unique Costumes with which players can customize their character
  • Three Magic Items to aid players in battle:
    • Spirits’ Flamepike: Shards of the spear provided by Fire spirits. (Attribites: heat) Enables five combo attacks.
    • Spirits’ Blightstone: Explosive stone provided by the spirits. (Attributes: venom)
    • Spirits’ Fulgurwood: Root provided by the Thunder spirits. (Attributes: volt) It tracks enemies on the ground and attacks with thunder spell.
  • The Japanese voice-over pack. Get it for no added cost during the promotion!

My team has put a lot of spirit and passionate work into this great title, and I’m very proud of it. Once you play the game, you’ll be able to tell that I’ve sacrificed a lot to create this game. Please try and see what it’s like to sacrifice you, your friends and everything to enjoy this game to the fullest. The game has a lot to it, and the more you play the more you’ll see. Please go explore and find all the Offerings and use the magics to fight through. I’m confident Soul Sacrifice will draw you in instantly and I hope you share your experience and the joy of playing this game with as many people as possible.

Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita

My own life story has been the inspiration of this game. I was put in a lot of situations where I had to make tough decisions. I learned that things don’t go well just because you want to be famous or rich or a better person. You have to constantly think what you’re willing to give up or sacrifice to make things happen. In the past, in order to make interesting games, I had to give up on my sleep, or time with my family. I had to make these tough choices to create interesting games. I also had to give up my status and position when leaving my previous job in order to run my own company. But sometimes, you have to give up something in order to start something, and I thought bringing this to the game would bring realness to the game and create something that players have never been able to experience.

Games are evolving to more and better reflect our emotions. Before, things seemed to be just digital and two dimensional. It was mostly only about whether you were strong or weak, whether could fight at a higher level or not. I believe it will go beyond that, using emotions and instinct, things that are less about a gamer’s ability. I think this will become more important going forward, and I am proud that Soul Sacrifice is among those games to further explore a profound emotional aspect and moral dilemma in-game.

You guys need to learn from this and announce if a digital game includes pre-order bonuses much earlier.

Are these the same bonuses you get for preordering at GameStop?

To answer my own question — yes, these are the same preorder bonuses as GameStop. Looks like someone’s getting a cancelled reserve today.

Guys, add me on PSN. Currently 19/1 in the demo and clocked in 40 hours (not much I know).

+ camiwaits_us on April 30th, 2013 at 7:13 am said:

I’ve played the demo 15 hours according to my Vita notifications; so this one is definitely a day one buy for me.

bad sign?


23

+ ValinEndac on April 30th, 2013 at 7:14 am said:

I’m very happy about this announcement, but a little sad it wasn’t confirmed earlier.
Now I just have to decide between the summer sales or getting Soul Sacrifice for the bonus content right away.


24

+ jpin_us on April 30th, 2013 at 7:16 am said:

By the way, aren’t there any info on the price? I just bought a $50 card. Hoping it would suffice.


25

+ rafaelfc on April 30th, 2013 at 7:17 am said:

there is no way this game is over 50 bucks… it’ll probably be 39,99


26

+ I-Dusk-I on April 30th, 2013 at 7:19 am said:

@24 It will be $39.99


27

+ rafael_martines on April 30th, 2013 at 7:19 am said:

If it will be $39,99 I’m ok :D

The love my Vita is going to get this next few months due to this game brings a tear to my eyes.
I wish we had more quality exclusives like this to play on the Vita.

+ TwinDad on April 30th, 2013 at 7:25 am said:

Very nice written post. I tried the demo and unfortunately the game just isn’t for me. But I have friends that really want it, so thank you.


35

+ jpin_us on April 30th, 2013 at 7:26 am said:

Hopefully VITA would pick up steam after SS. So we could get more AAA games.


36

+ J-Kisner on April 30th, 2013 at 7:29 am said:

@rafaelfc you mean it will bring Lacrima to your eyes? heh heh.


37

+ Zionine on April 30th, 2013 at 7:29 am said:

Thank you, Sony, for including the bonus material to early digital downloads. Will buy the second I see the store is updated!

Add me for Soul Sacrifice multiplayer! I need more Vita pals!

Tks you Mr. Keiji Inafune – i hope to see SS2 ‘s news asap.

+ Mando44646 on April 30th, 2013 at 7:39 am said:

thank you for supporting those of us buying on PSN!


46

+ Ramza_x on April 30th, 2013 at 7:43 am said:

I can’t wait for the FFX and FFX-2 HD remakes. I just hope I don’t completely wear out my Vita playing them. I think I had around three hundred hours logged into FFX and at least two hundred in FFX-2. Its going to be amazing.

It looks like Tearaway is going to be pretty awesome too and I can’t wait to play it as well.


47

+ Falaut on April 30th, 2013 at 7:44 am said:

So I just got home after picking this up, and it looks like its not transfering over the character from the demo?! What gives? and I specifically did not delete the demo because it said it would delete the save file.

Cheers.

+ XeahuleXolic on April 30th, 2013 at 7:46 am said:

+ ShuaReborn on April 30th, 2013 at 7:50 am said:

I agree with comment “45” Thanks for supporting those of us aiming to go full digital. I wasn’t going to buy it right away, but since you’re doing this awesome promo I’m in.

Also do you know roughly when stuff goes live on PSN? I’m in Montreal and it always seems like it’s very late in the day.
