Namco Bandai has made just PC gamers very happy indeed by confirming that Dark Souls will be coming to their platform, but could we possibly see a surprise version for the PS Vita as well?
You definitely want to read the following information with a pinch of salt, but a new game by the name of Soul Sacrifice has just shown up in the latest edition of Japanese magazine Famitsu.
Accompanying information about the game along with scans from the magazine have been uploaded over at NeoGaf Forums here. The poster who provided the information has said that this game is due to be announced by Sony on May 10.
While the screenshots do not provide any evidence of Dark Souls material, it could be the case where Soul Sacrifice has been lost in translation over in Japan and it may indeed be linked to Dark Souls. It’s a long shot we agree, but you never know.
On the plus side, at least a brand new game is coming to the PS Vita either way. The system is in dire need of some new material and those three new apps by Sony are not going to cut it to be honest. To go back to the Dark Souls argument though – how fantastic would a PS Vita version of the game be? Dare we sayit , but should a new petition be started to get the word across to Namco Bandai? That certainly seems to be the fashion at the moment after noticing that a second petition is underway for the PC version to NOT include any form of Games for Windows Live DRM.
Take a look at the scans for yourself and tell us what you make of them. Would you like to see a Dark Souls game on the PS Vita as well? Surely the hardware would be handle Dark Souls without any problems either, after seeing gorgeous games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss on the Vita.
