Sony is currently streaming the Tokyo Game Show trailer for Keiji Inafune's Soul Sacrifice action game for the PlayStation Vita handheld system. The video features battle gameplay, the different monsters players will face, and the different types of magic available to players.
The player in the game is a slave to a cruel magician. As the slave is about to be sacrificed, a mysterious "Golam Book" that is actually monster in disguise appears before the slave. It is unclear if this book will be an enemy or an ally.
The game will allow for up to four-players in co-op play. In the world of the game, in order to use magic, a sacrifice must be offered. If correct compensation is not offered, magic users will lose their lives. The compensations range from simple items such as jewels to body parts. As magic users become more powerful, they lose their human appearance and will eventually turn into the monsters that inhabit the world.
Inafune, formerly of Capcom, is helming the project at his current studio comcept. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will produce the title developed by Marvelous AQL. Kentarou Motomura is serving as producer, while Teruyuki Toriyama will act as his assistant producer. Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Xenoblade Chronicles) and Wataru Hokoyama (Afrika) are in charge of the game's music.
The game has been delayed from this winter to spring 2013. Inafune noted on Tuesday that this is to ensure that a better quality game will be published. Sony will release a demo for the game this winter.
