Soul Sacrifice Delta, Freedom Wars and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines being localised for PS VitaWritten by: / / 2 Comments
There haven’t been very many PS Vita exclusives released over the past year but Sony recently confirmed that it will be publishing three new Japanese titles for the platform in North America and Europe: Soul Sacrifice Delta, Freedom Wars and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines. The first two of these games will be released during 2014, with Soul Sacrifice Delta out on May 13th in the US and May 14th in PAL territories. Interestingly, all three titles are being produced with SCE Japan Studio’s involvement.
Soul Sacrifice Delta is a hugely expanded version of the original game featuring a new faction, new Archfiends inspired by dark retellings of classic fairy tales, and various improvements such as dynamic arenas and improved enemy AI. If you’ve invested countless hours in Soul Sacrifice then you’ll be pleased to know that your progression can carry over to this upcoming release.
Freedom Wars is a unique take on the multiplayer action RPG genre that’s enjoyed so much success in Japan over the past decade. Set in a dystopian world which harbours prisoners such as the character you play as, you’ll need to complete civilian rescue missions to whittle away at your prison sentence. Up to four players can play via ad-hoc and eight players via online as you enjoy an intense blend of action, shooter and strategy gameplay.
Finally, Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines is the sequel to the original PlayStation title released in Japan in 1999. This RPG features a beautiful art style and an intriguing setup whereby you assume control of an ancient Japanese clan that has been cursed with a maximum lifespan of two years. The game’s plot revolves around your quest to lift this curse with the help of your clan, and you can also call on gods inspired by Japanese mythology to strengthen and prolong the lives of each subsequent generation of your tribe.
Which of these titles will you be picking up when they’re eventually released in the West? Let us know in the comments.
