Soul Sacrifice release date announced
We’ve been looking forward to Soul Sacrifice for ages. With a concept created by Keiji Inafune, he of Mega Man fame, it’s shaping up to be a gore-filled good time, and a much needed hit in the Vita library. Just announced on the PlayStation blog is the great news that the game will be released in Europe, both digitally and in boxed form, on 1 May.
Those keen enough to pre-order get a wealth of bonus content as means of a thankyou: two extra costumes, three magic items and the “Japanese voice-over pack” for free. This lets you play the game with Japanese voice acting instead of the English dub. The pack will be available to everyone as paid DLC, but pre-orders get it free. Quite bloody cheeky, if you ask us.
Our pal Keiji is excited about the game nearing launch:
“I’m excited that we are finally able to announce the release date of Soul Sacrifice. I have put all my passion and soul into the game’s concept and my talented team has made an incredible effort to create the best game it could ever be. I’m confident that we’ve created an extremely engaging game that you will enjoy playing.
“The game has become nothing like any other game with an original and deep world settings which could only be possible in a dark fantasy environment. I’m looking forward to you being able to experience the unique adventure of real heroism in Soul Sacrifice. Immerse yourself in the world of Soul Sacrifice and have fun playing it!”
Piss-taking DLC practices aside, Soul Sacrifice looks pretty ace, and we love any excuse to pick up a Vita. Roll on May!
