If you already thought Soul Sacrifice sounded like a bizarre game, just wait until you see the press conference presentation, in which former Capcom producer Keiji Inafune plays his upcoming PlayStation Vita game live.
You'll have to sit (or skim) through a mystifying intro and some unsubtitled explanation, but there's some clear gameplay footage to be seen throughout the 15-minute video, especially near the end.
Prior to this we saw a grim debut trailer for Soul Sacrifice, which has players sacrificing parts of their body to perform magic. An example of the sacrificial magic is Excalibur: Shove your hand down your throat, pull out your spinal cord, and wield it as a sword. As a slave who serves a cruel sorcerer, torturing yourself to slay foes comes with the territory.
Soul Sacrifice hits PlayStation Vita in Japan this winter.
