Soul Sacrifice Confirmed for Western Release

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.”

He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
