"Soul Sacrifice" hits PS Vita in North America on April 30
We don't even have Soul Sacrifice—Keiji Inafune's sorcerous PS Vita action game—in North America yet, but there's talk brewing about a sequel. While speaking with IGN, Inafune said he's in talks with Sony to make it happen, and he already has an idea for it.
After Soul Sacrifice launched in Japan in early March, it went on to sell 150,000 retail units, and that's not taking into account the digital sales.
Regarding a sequel, Inafune said, "I'm interested in making other console games for PlayStation, not just for the Vita … Soul Sacrifice is something I specifically designed for Vita using [the] hardware's specific features. To drive Vita sales even more, I have an idea for a Soul Sacrifice sequel. I'm actually approaching [Sony Computer Entertainment] regarding this project."
He closed by saying, "Let's say the talks are ongoing and I'd love to make it happen."
It's great that talks are already happening, but let's focus on the present in the west for now. It should be interesting to see how Soul Sacrifice performs when it launches in North America on April 30, especially considering the somewhat dire state Vita is in at the moment.
