PS Vita owners may have been feeling a little starved lately due to a lack of major game releases on Sony’s handheld, but the situation is set to improve significantly with the arrival of promising PRG Soul Sacrifice which arrives soon and is releasing in Japan at the end of the week.
Since the game is coming out within days in Japan, we can now bring you one of the first official reviews to come out for the promising title, and it comes from the reputable Japanese publication Famitsu. There has been a lot of hype over this game, not just due to the fact that the PS Vita needs new games, but the fact that Soul Sacrifice is actually a game that could go on to shift PS Vita hardware.
Famitsu’s review seems to have justified this, as they have given the game a very pleasing 37/40 review score, comprised of individual scores of 10,9,9 and 9 respectively. A summary of Famitsu’s review has been uploaded and posted to the NeoGaf forums, which also reveals some interesting information on the game – notably a rough time on how long it will take to complete the single player campaign.
According to the notes, Soul Sacrifice has an average campaign duration of 25 hours, which isn’t too bad at all for a PS Vita game. Don’t forget that the game also features a multiplayer mode as well which will increase the game’s longevity tenfold. We can also tell you that Soul Sacrifice has a deep magic crafting system, with over 300 spells to learn and utilize as you progress through the game.
Soul Sacrifice is not due out here until the end of April, but based on Famitsu’s review it looks like it could be a must-buy for all PS Vita owners. Take a look at the review notes over at Neogaf and tell us if you will be picking up Soul Sacrifice in the weeks to come.
Are you still disappointed that there isn’t more major games on the way to the PS Vita? We see Killzone Mercenary of course, but what else?
