It’s been little under a year since Soul Sacrifice was unveiled to PS Vita players around the world – many of who were longing to have a Monster Hunter-like title announced for the handheld.
With the game’s launch fast approaching, Sony has announced that a demo for this co-op action RPG will be released this coming week. US players get the sample this Tuesday, April 16th, while players in PAL territories will be able to download the demo from Wednesday.
The PlayStation Blog is being secretive about the demo’s contents for now, but if it’s the same one that was released in Japan last December then it will feature a few co-op enabled missions from the early stages of the game and allow you to transfer your save data to the full release.
Here’s the first part of an interview with Soul Sacrifice creator Keiji Inafune discussing some of the game’s key concepts and which sources were referenced when creating its awe-inspiring bosses:
Soul Sacrifice will be released exclusively for PS Vita on April 30th in the US and May 1st in European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this innovative title co-developed by Marvelous AQL and SCE Japan Studio.
