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.

HOW TO ACTIVATE/WORK THE DLC:
Well I figured out how to work the DLC. the dlc is like Ragnarok where you gotta import the dlc, by going to “Network” and clicking the thing under “Multiplayer,” called “Peddler.” You’ll know what to do from there

But sadly, the 2 costumes is only really one costume, for the girl and one for the guy. I thought it would be 2 entirely.

Can’t wait to pick this up at the store today! I enjoyed the demo immensely! Also thanks for sending out the codes for the Falcon Feather in your email today. Not a high rank item, but its a neat spell and more of a gesture than you had to do. Thanks!

@105/Dragonsmana:

BTW, is it working for you? The code, I mean? It’s not working on my psn. Gives me some “invalid” error. Maybe I need to wait for the store to update?

April 30th, 10:56 am

i wish microsoft would make a handheld device. sony has such wasted potential. major disappointment in american service. sometimes i wonder if they are still upset about ww 2. games like this should be available to download at midnght on release date.

Mr-Optimism said:

April 30th, 10:58 am

I already have my copy. Thank you for this amazing game!

MichaelEATworld said:

April 30th, 11:02 am

at least ten people on this blog have asked what time it will be released. a decent company would respond considering its their blog. but no. they like to see americans squirm.

@MichaelEATworld,

Shhhhhh.

Moo.

Donelwero said:

April 30th, 11:05 am

There is no expected time for the update.

I wish it was like Nintendo on that front. But yeah, the day the Metal Gear HD Collection for the Vita was released the update took place almost at 9 P.M. So, let’s hope we get that update soon.

Thirty3Three said:

April 30th, 11:06 am

@115

It updated at around 1am (EST)

The only thing left we can do is to use the “Search” function inside the store. Sometimes the game is uploaded before Sony announcig (is announcing a correct word?) the PSN Update because there are other titles for the PS3 or the Vita being uploaded.

Thirty3Three said:

April 30th, 11:17 am

That’s exactly what I was thinking, Donel! :)

By the way, keep checking your email! apparently a dlc code (unrelated to the preorder stuff; totally new) was sent out to people, and will continue to in waves! It’s a code for a spell. My friend got it!

Donelwero said:

April 30th, 11:24 am

Woah! That sounds great!!

Well, now I can wait for something else :)

I’ll sacrifice my F5 key!!!

When I put the bonus code from GameStop it only gives download towards voice only? In game I don’t have the magic items =[

geneMag said:

April 30th, 11:32 am

Got the physical game and had the Preorder Bonus codes registered on PSN.

My internet’s wonky right now, so I’m having a hard time setting the one for the Network Pass and Downloading the DLC. Seems to work fine otherwise.

Toadamus said:

April 30th, 11:39 am

Have fun mates,still have to wait on the bloody psn network to update oh well.. :D i think my dlc process would be different than you guys because physical is dfferent than digital

Nokiri said:

April 30th, 11:41 am

I’m confuse bout the armor n spells I know I don’t have spell on my char costume idk the names to see if I do

Thirty3Three said:

April 30th, 11:43 am

NETWORK > PEDDLER > CLAIM GIFT to get the costume and spells

The store is updated very often at 2 PM PST – 5 PM EST.
It glitches up, but I think that’s their target time.. As in.. if they have it done already, they wait until 5 to publish all of it.

:) About to toss 40 some dollars on a bunch of games on that sale.. :D About the same time I go pick up my retail copy of SS

Toadamus said:

Sadly not yet available on the Canadian PSN, oh well…

B_Rockyxx said:

April 30th, 1:07 pm

A question if I buy it from PSN for the $35 do i need to purchase the online pass for $10 as well? I have always wondered this for games with both.

Mr_HydeX said:

April 30th, 1:07 pm

yesss its up! grab now :P

Sniper_Amer said:

April 30th, 1:08 pm

hey did anyone get the costumes and the spells or magics from the psn yet? i just got the Japanese voice pack when i bought it thats it.

Leopino14 said:

April 30th, 1:10 pm

Online pass is only when you obtain the game already used, aka from a friend. So that you have to actually pay for something.

lkenourmos said:

April 30th, 1:12 pm

it is on the store when I searched for it but does it come with the costumes, magic and japanese voice? it doesnt say anything so I’m worried to buy it and not get the extra stuff …

Elvick_ said:

April 30th, 1:13 pm

Honestly SCEA peeps, put this info out earlier. I knew this would be the type of deal you went with, but people that buy digital still want to know if they should forgo digital to get preorder bonuses BEFORE it’s too late to preorder at retail. Not after.

Peace of mind is valuable to a consumer.

@47: If you didn’t figure it out yet, just start a new game in the game. For some reason that’s how you import the save file from the demo. Seems stupid (and is imo) but that’s how it worked for me.

Od1n757 said:

April 30th, 1:14 pm

soooo i got the email code and it says invalid

Zbadrawy said:

April 30th, 1:16 pm

Awesome
Just wish they’d say how long it is. I’m travelling for 9 days tomorrow so if its not more than 1 week, im probably screwed!

CaNoP said:

April 30th, 1:16 pm

when you buy it you get the online pass and the voice pack, don’t know about the costumes. I guess in the in game clam

afigueroa said:

April 30th, 1:21 pm

Store has updated!!

ammoburn said:

April 30th, 1:22 pm

How big is this game? I HATE carrying around little cartridges but my 32gb is almost full. Why isn’t download size and price listed on the website. This is very basic stuff. Come on Sony!

Also, how do you get the demo dlc bonuses?

FeloRude said:

April 30th, 1:23 pm

Where is the costumes and the magic spells??
I buyed but i see no costumes or magic spells
