Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has posted three new videos to the Soul Sacrifice website that collectively account for 34 minutes of the presentation that was held in Tokyo last Thursday. The videos feature English interpretation of the various speakers who took to the stage during the presentation – a sure sign that Sony intends to release Soul Sacrifice outside of Japan at some point.
The first video sees concept designer Keiji Inafune talk about the unique features of the game and explain its intriguing premise. The second video focuses on the two renowned composers behind Soul Sacrifice’s epic score – Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama – and even features some of the music from the game. The final video shows plenty of direct-feed, multiplayer gameplay footage and Inafune explains what “fighting shoulder to shoulder” actually signifies in gameplay terms. We also get a glimpse at some of the stylish character and monster designs that match the ‘true fantasy’ aesthetic that the developers are striving for.
Take a look at the fascinating Soul Sacrifice presentation below:
Soul Sacrifice is exclusive to PS Vita and is currently scheduled for a Winter release in Japan. Sony hasn’t yet confirmed a Western release but it seems very likely that an English version of the game will be released at some stage.
