Librom returns in Soul Sacrifice Delta, out this May exclusively on the PlayStation Store
Soul Sacrifice launched last year, and quickly became a favourite of Vita gamers everywhere. The game received an expanded re-release last month in Asia, under the title of Soul Sacrifice Delta. While it saw a retail release in that continent, the game will be a digital-only release in the west.
This new version includes the original game alongside a lot of enhancements. Visually, the graphics engine has been improved and now some arenas support dynamic weather effects and structural changes during battle. The AI of the archfiends has also been improved, as has customization, which now allows the ability to mix custom parts and accessories. The spells system has been refined for more collaborative and deeper gameplay. There’s also a lot of new content in the form of new Archfiends inspired by dark retellings of classic fairy tales, new sorcerers, arenas, spells and even more quests.
But the biggest change to the game is the factions system. This new mechanic allows players to join the side of their choice, each with their own strengths and play styles. Players from each faction can now register their overall progress. This new addition sees the introduction of Grim, the faction who believes in neutrality in all things, which joins the blood thirsty Avalon and the merciful Sanctuary. Grim’s beliefs, rooted in the prophecy they will seek to realise, will bring about irrevocable changes to the world as we know it.
Those that own Soul Sacrifice can import their save data to Delta. This means you can carry over your story progression, costumes, offerings, sigils, black rites, life/soul essence and lacrima (up to 10,000) from the first game.
Soul Sacrifice Delta will launch on May 13th in North America, with a European release following the next day.
In addition to Soul Sacrifice Delta, Sony also confirmed western releases for Freedom Wars and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines on Vita. It sounds like those two will be getting a retail release, so we won’t be covering them, but they’re really good looking games, so I suggest you check them out.
