This week’s issue of Famitsu has the scoop on the PS Vita action game, Soul Sacrifice. According to the publication, former Capcom employee, Kenji Inafune, is involved with the project’s planning and development. Marvelous AQL is developing the title.
In Soul Sacrifice players enter a book where the main character engages in the story and battles found in the world of this book. The protagonist is someone who was raised by a cruel sorcerer. Just as the main character is about to be given as a sacrificial offering, a special book appears before him. This book is a demon in book form. It contains the records of past fights between the sorcerer and monsters.
Conjuring a spell in Soul Sacrifice will cost you. When you cast magic, you’ll need to make payment through objects, i.e a tree or rock. Stronger spells will require you to sacrifice your body parts. For instance, you can sacrifice your finger(s) to call out a Gleipnir. Sacrifice your eye(s) and you’ll call out a Gorgon.
As part of the game’s story setting, the monsters you fight are former humans who used their magic too much and lost their human form. Make the same mistake, and you’ll also begin to lose your human form.
Soul Sacrifice is rumored to arrive this Winter in Japan and will support 1-4 players.
