33w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa shared a new pre-order video trailer today announcing that Soul Sacrifice is officially out next week with details below.
To quote: Hello, PlayStation friends! We hope you're enjoying the recently released Soul Sacrifice demo.
Remember - online multiplayer support for the demo will end when the game launches next Tuesday, so if you've been curious to see how the infrastructure online handles, check it out sooner rather than later.
Just as importantly: your save files carry over to the finished game, and doing so is the only way to get your hands on a special magical Offering, so check out the demo if you haven't already.
The full game will be out next Tuesday, April 30th, but there's still time left to pre-order! Instead of yet again writing about all the goodies set aside for folks who reserve their copies, we decided to make a video. Enjoy!
We've got plenty more to share, including the second (and final) part of our special sit-down with designer Keiji Inafune, so stay tuned!
33w ago - Amanita Design Founder Jakub Dvorsky confirmed today that acclaimed indie adventure Machinarium is coming to PS Vita next week.
Below are the details, to quote: We're thrilled to be bringing our acclaimed adventure title Machinarium to PS Vita on 1st May. When the PS3 version was released, we called it the best version of the game.
In it, we added lots of new features - like the ability to zoom in to get a closer look at the scene, magnetic hotspots, 12 Trophies and more.
The PS Vita version makes no compromises. In fact, it's even better! It includes all the enhancements from the PS3 version, but we've added some new features to complement PS Vita's capabilities.
You can now control the game not only with the system's analogue sticks and buttons, but also directly with your fingers on the touch screen and rear touch panel. We've improved the zoom feature too, so it's more convenient to play the game in a portable capacity.
The graphics, music and sounds are presented at full quality, and everything runs smoothly and looks as beautiful as ever on Vita's gorgeous 5″ OLED display. For the best audio experience, put on some nice headphones so you can fully enjoy the award-winning soundtrack by Floex.
