It took a while, but Sony has finally announced that we’ll be able to play the much-anticipated PlayStation Vita game Soul Sacrifice from April 30th in North America and May 1st in Europe. Like other big PS Vita games, it will be sold both in stores and on the PlayStation Store.
As for pre-order bonuses, Soul Sacrifice will come with exclusive in-game content that won’t be sold on the PSN at a later date. This includes two unique costumes and the following three magic items to use in battle:
- Spirits’ Flamepike – Shards of the spear provided by Fire spirits, unleashing a five hit combo attack with heat effects
- Spirits’ Blightstone – Explosive stones with poison effects provided by the spirits
- Spirits’ Fulgurwood – Root provided by the Thunder spirits. Tracks enemies on the ground and attacks with thunder spell
They don’t stop there either, as everyone who pre-orders will be given the Japanese voice-over pack for free. It will be sold for a price at game launch, though if you want it for free, put some money down on it now.
Project Lead Keiji Inafune issued a statement about the release date announcement:
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!
