If you are excited about the upcoming release of Soul Sacrifice on the PS Vita, there’s no doubt that you will be keeping your eyes on the PS Vita store in likelihood of a demo release. A demo for the promising game is available, but only in Japanese and only on the JP PSN network store. If you are eager to see what the demo contains, you’ll be pleased to hear that we have complete gameplay from the demo to show you – providing over two hours of material to feast your eyes on.
Despite the fact that the game is not out until next year, a lot of comparisons have already been made on how this plays in a similar style to Monster Hunter. As most of you know, Capcom has decided to make Monster Hunter exclusive to Nintendo systems for the time being, but PS Vita owners shouldn’t be too disheartened about this as Soul Sacrifice is looking far better than just a Monster Hunter alternative.
The demo gives you a detailed insight into the game and for those that also have access to a Japanese PSN account, it’s important to note that data can be saved and transferred over to the full game when it becomes available next year. We know that the game will be out in March for Japanese Vita owners, but no release information is known yet for the US or EU versions.
The graphics shown in the demo are looking pretty impressive and definitely on par with some Monster Hunter 4 screenshots that we’ve seen on the Nintendo 3DS. Although all of the spoken dialogue is in Japanese, you could easily get to grips with the general feel of the game and download it in Japanese if you really can’t wait for a western release. This has to be one of the most generous helpings we’ve seen as far as demo content goes, that includes any PS3 demos as well.
Is the game going to be the so called ‘savior’ of the PS Vita? – We doubt it, but it probably is going to be one of the standout Vita titles of 2013. Watch all of the footage below and let us know your initial impressions of Soul Sacrifice.
