    New Vita Game - Soul Sacrifice



    SOUL SACRIFICE |

    Toggle Spoiler


    For a game we know next to nothing about, Soul Sacrifice is beginning to seem like a big deal. The PlayStation Vita exclusive – revealed in Famitsu magazine earlier in the week – has now been granted a fairly high-budget teaser website, showing off some concept art from the game.
    Set to a thumping drum-beat and images of grotesque monsters, the website explains that the “true fantasy” game is “not about cooperation” but about “fighting shoulder to shoulder”. It concludes that all will be revealed on 10th May, and invites you to “witness the unveiling” on PlayStation’s Japanese website.
    The unveiling will supposedly include presentations by the game’s developers and more.
    But despite the hype surrounding the game, we still know very little about it. Some are speculating that it’s a Dark Souls spin-off developed by From Software, but there’s very little evidence of that other than the Soul Sacrifice name and the use of similar fonts in the game’s logo. Others think it's a direct competitor to Monster Hunter produced by SCEJ.
    Either way, it’s clear that Sony’s putting a lot of resources behind the game. And with Vita’s sales beginning to flag domestically, there's no doubt that this is exactly the kind of game the system needs. Consider us excited.
    I hope that FROMSoftware has anything to do with this, would be great to see a Demon soul spin off

    If it's a DS spin-off, I will literally jump for joy.

    Yeap, most likely DS-related. The artwork and font (like Ps360 said) give it away.

    I thought you had something against rehashes.

    Aaaaaaaaand I do.

    That said, the Vita REALLY needs a great game, and a Souls game would be that game. And hey, I'd enjoy the fuck out of it too. I dislike rehashes, sure, but the formula has yet to have gotten old for me. Especially if they make some changes and tweaks, it'd be awesome.

    I kind of doubt it'd be a great game. DS was a great game. DkS was simply a good game. This will most likely be either what DkS was or 'worse', since it'll be develped on an 'inferior' platform in which From has no experience whatsoever.

    Said changes and tweaks would be the same as the changes and tweaks you see from CoD to CoD, which are practically nothing but esthetic changes.

    True, it's unlikely it'd be as good as Demon's Souls, or Dark Souls either, but it's something that boosts sales and has a lot of replay value. Two plusses for both Sony and I.

    As far as tweaks go, it's a maybe. Some devs like to go out of their way to make changes (such as Sucker Punch who took it too far with inFamous 2), while others don't. From doesn't seem to be one who'd change much, but considering that they'd be making a game for a different platform, there could be some gameplay aspects changed in order to fit the system. It really all depends, but the tease has got me excited enough.

    The replay value depends heavily on how good it is, though.

    They'll probably only make esthetic changes (like I said before) and make a smaller world (thus decreasing replayability), since they are most likely not going to be able to fit a world like DS' or DkS' in there.

    Of course you are excited, like I said you would whenever they announced/released another one lol.

    I'm really hoping it is a Dark game or from the same series. I believe Sony owns the rights to Demon's Souls so its very likely that this is indeed the case. If it is, I know what my next Vita purchase will be whenever it gets released.

    Well, Sony is the publisher, so they do have the publishing rights to the game, so you could say that in a way they do own DS .

    I hope it's a Souls spin-off. I have Ragnarok Odyssey as my MO substitute, so this should last me long enough until a real MO game comes along..

    Either way, I don't care. Take my damn money and give me that game!

    I dont see how a demon souls game is suppose to move a bunch of units. Maybe in japan, but i thought that it had sold well there, so idk. If sony wants to move some consoles, then they need to get their head out of there ass and get remote play right. Some awesome shit with the AR cards might make some people think that theyneed tobuy it. If they want to release a game to move units worldwide, then make a damn FF7 remake already

    The Vita is doing terrible in Japan so if this is a Soul game, it should sell very well there and everywhere else for that matter. As far as Sony moving lots of units by a FFVII remake, Square Enix would need to do this a they are the ones who made it and not Sony.

    Damn i thought it was selling well in japan but i guess i was wrong and am hearing things again lol. So if the goal is moving japanese units, i think that the monster hunter type game would do beter than a ds game. People are seriosly bat shit over monser hunter there

    The DS is outselling the Vita by about 10-1, currently. Hell, the PSP has sold more units than the Vita has within the last month.

    A Monster Hunter game would probably do some good for the sales, but a Souls game will still do the system justice as well. Let's just cross our fingers the system at least gets a good game.
