Each of the four protagonists will have their own combos, special moves, skills, and equipment, and they will each play totally differently. Head to our official Web site to learn more about them.
So who's the final character? None other than the Seraphim Mage, a character who is very special and dear to all Sacred fans! The Seraphim has always played a unique role in the Sacred series – one could even say that she is the figurehead...

37w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino has announced that Table Mini Golf is putting to PS Vita on April 9, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: It's my pleasure to introduce you to a brand new game in the AR Play family of PlayStation Vita titles - Table Mini Golf (no, not table putt-putt - sorry Mid-west)!
Like the previous games in the AR Play series, Table Mini Golf is a bite-sized game with monster-sized scope - you'll use the AR Play cards to construct dozens of mini-golf courses across most flat surfaces of your choosing, and then pick one of three stylish characters to show off your putting skills in style.
Courses are split into one of two lively themes - Horror and Pirate - and come in both Rookie and Pro difficulties to satisfy those looking for a lighthearted and/or challenging good time.
These courses can be mixed and matched across two distinct modes, Free Play and Elimination, in which up to four players (or AI partners) can compete to see whose putting skills are above and below par. (See what I did there?)
Fear not, Table Mini Golf is not your standard game of nine holes - the good folks at Four Door Lemon have wedged in plenty of challenges, Trophies and extra goodies to keep you playing. Winning matches and satisfying certain...

To quote: We're excited to finally announce our launch date and pricing details for Guacamelee! The game will be released on April 9th in the Americas, and will support Cross-Buy for $14.99.
This means you buy the game once and get both the PS3 and PS Vita versions. And that's not all... there's also a Platinum Trophy!
With GDC being this week, and the IGF award nomination for "Excellence in Visual Art," we also thought it would be cool to share some early concept art and video footage of the game, so that you can see for yourself how much things have changed. As you can see, Guacamelee! has really come a long way visually since its inception.
We began working on Guacamelee! in February of 2011. For the first two months, the game existed solely as a PowerPoint presentation and some concept art. Here's the very first screenshot mock-up of the game from that presentation:
We brought these materials and another game idea with us to GDC to gauge publisher interest in the two titles. Guacamelee! was clearly the more popular of the two ideas, and after...
