Keiji Inafune's "Soul Sacrifice" Pushed Back to Spring 2013 in Japan

Sorcery-infused PS Vita game originally planned for winter, gets TGS trailer

Pre-TGS press conferences have had plenty of Keiji Inafune in the spotlight, especially with the announcement of his collaboration with Team Ninja, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. Let's not forget about his dark PS Vita game, Soul Sacrifice, which has been given a new spring 2013 release window. 

 

 

Soul Sacrifice features music by Chrono Trigger's Yasunori Mitsuda and Resident Evil 5's Wataru Hokoyama, and with it Inafune hopes to illustrate "reality blended into a fantasy world." While the title was originally planned for a winter release, the Monster Hunter-style, sorcery-infused co-op game was pushed back to ensure its quality. 

 

A demo is set to hit Japan this winter, and, as previously reported, Soul Sacrifice will eventually make its way to Vita in North America and Europe.
