Soul Sacrifice Delta on PS Vita Confirmed for Western Release on May 13th/14th (Update: Digital Only)

Update: In an interview today, Japan Studio Studio Chief Allan Becker confirmed that “we’re planning to release Soul Sacrifice [Delta] only on the PlayStation Store” in May. This means they aren’t planning on doing a physical release.

Original Story: Following a rating by the ACB, Sony has officially confirmed that Soul Sacrifice Delta on PlayStation Vita will be getting a Western release on May 13th in North America and May 14th in Europe.

Here’s the announcement trailer for Soul Sacrifice Delta:

If you’re unfamiliar with Soul Sacrifice Delta, here’s an overview of what’s different in this re-release:

Soul Sacrifice Delta is the ultimate edition of Soul Sacrifice with tons of new content and improvements. Grim, the faction who believes in neutrality in all things, joins the blood thirsty Avalon and the merciful Sanctuary, and adds a third angle to bring the Delta in Soul Sacrifice. Grim’s beliefs, rooted in the prophecy they will seek to realize, will bring about irrevocable changes to the world as we know it.

The concept of faction is now at the heart of the game with players able to join the side of their choice, each with their own strengths and play styles. Players from each faction can now register their overall progress.

Soul Sacrifice Delta brings a lot of new content as well, with new Archfiends inspired by dark re-tellings of classic fairy tales, new sorcerers, arenas, spells and even more quests.

We have also made many improvements to the game design and systems: the graphics engine has been optimized, some arenas are now dynamic with weather effects and structural changes during battle, the spells system has been refined and allows for more collaborative and deeper gameplay.

We’ve also improved the AI of the Archfiends, who are now more vicious than ever. Finally, we’ve taken character customization to a new level, with the ability to mix custom parts and accessories.

For those of you who have played the original Soul Sacrifice, your save data can be transferred over to Delta.
