Video: Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita: Tough Choices, Colossal Bosses

100°
92w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has posted up a video today spotlighting the tough choices and colossal bosses in Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita below.

To quote: Soul Sacrifice is, as its name suggests, a game that asks the player to make an ultimate decision. It happens every time you defeat an enemy, actually - a choice to either save the enemy's soul, or sacrifice it for your own gain.

How you customize your character in this regard is crucial, since you're going to go up against some very large enemies. That scale, and the importance of making the player truly feel it, is at the heart of this piece from composer Wataru Hokoyama:

"An unbelievably gigantic enemy appears before you. For this piece, I focused on bringing out the full potential of a full scale orchestra by using bold orchestration to depict the immeasurable sense of scale of the enemy's size and power. I hope the score will make the players feel like, "there is no way I can beat an enemy with this kind of scale." - Wataru Hokoyama





Because there are gigantic, powerful enemies, it's important to build your character's stats and levels. Your decision of saving or sacrificing will affect what type of character you want to build.

93w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared a video demo which takes fans inside Skywalker Sound: Soul Sacrifice's Battle Theme below.

To quote: Back in December, we released a sneak-peek of the Skywalker Sound soundtrack recording video for Soul Sacrifice. As mentioned, the game's soundtrack is composed by [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links], two of the most recognized composers in the industry.

Today. I'm excited to share a video introducing one of the scores Mitsuda-san composed:

Mitsuda-san was kind enough to provide us the following accompanying message:

"This was the very first battle music I composed, and I focused on making sure it fit the fighting theme of Soul Sacrifice. The battle style in this game is different from traditional RPGs and action games where the battles are not instantaneous, but rather extensive and you fight for a longer period of time.

Within those battles, you will face all sorts of situations where you can have the upper hand, or be at a disadvantage. So, in order to match these dramatic sequences, I concentrated on adding many different elements to each piece in order to create an exciting musical composition.

Video: PS Vita's Soul Sacrifice: Leviathan and Ghost Mode Revealed

103w ago - Comcept Founder Keiji Inafune has posted up a video today showcasing both Leviathan and Ghost Mode in PS Vita's Soul Sacrifice below.

To quote: Today, I'm pleased to reveal a new monster, "Leviathan," and to share its backstory.

Meet Leviathan

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, there were two twin princes. The older twin excelled at everything, and the younger one failed at just as much. The two were so different that it was a wonder that the same blood flowed through their veins. It was like pairing up a giant and a dwarf.

The younger brother grew up with a severe inferiority complex and developed an extremely dark personality. He started to enjoy collecting ferocious animals, one in particular being a crocodile from another kingdom. He put the crocodile in a cage, where he tormented it. It was the only time he could ever feel strong.

Years went by, and it was finally time for the heir to take the throne. Of course, the chosen heir was none other than the eldest of the twin brothers. Jealous, the younger prince stormed off to his room. He sat there, staring at his crocodile.

"If only I could get the crocodile to kill my brother..." he thought. Just then a strange voice resonated in the room and the prince could feel his body...

113w ago - Comcept Founder Keiji Inafune has announced today that Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita is taking the Tokyo Game Show this year!

To quote: I'm excited that those of you who are attending Tokyo Game Show will finally be able to have some hands-on experience with Soul Sacrifice!

Once you play the game, I'm sure that you'll have a better sense of the world I've been wanting to create.

You'll be able to face the dilemmas, tough decisions, and the agony of choice that I've been wanting to portray in a game. I believe the TGS demo does a great job of conveying this new concept.

In the trailers and interviews released so far, we've shown the game's dark world setting and shared some of the story elements revealed in the single player mode.

We've also shared a few of the back stories from both the monsters and sorcerers that you'll encounter during gameplay. During TGS, I'm looking forward to showing you what the multiplayer mode can offer.

"Truly cooperate with allies" - I've explained the concept behind the multiplayer mode in the past, but I'm sure you'll gain a full understanding after playing through this TGS demo. You will experience trusting in your friends, being double-crossed or double crossing, and you will realize...
