Sony has confirmed that Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune’s upcoming Vita game, Soul Sacrifice, will see a Western release.

Inafune has released a new video detailing his motivations for making the game, here’s a snippet:

“What I wanted to illustrate in this game was a “reality blended into a fantasy world.” The word “fantasy” normally points to a story that is fictitious; however, with Soul Sacrifice I wanted to illustrate a ‘reality’ within a fantasy that wasn’t sugar-coated. It’s not about focusing on the strange, but to flip the commonly held concept of what a fantasy theme should be with the concept of ‘reality.’

“Cruelty is a reality in our world, and we have to make sacrifices and pay costs on a daily basis. I wanted to blend this ‘reality’ theme into a fantasy world, one filled with magic, and create a new type of gaming experience that relied on the player making sacrifices in order to obtain great power.”
