A Soul Sacrifice Sequel For Vita? ‘Talks Are Ongoing’
In a conversation with IGN, Soul Sacrifice creator Keiji Inafune confirmed that not only does he want to do a sequel to his PS Vita-exclusive game Soul Sacrifice, but that he’s actively talking to Sony about making it happen.
“I’m interested in making other console games for PlayStation, not just for the Vita,” Inafune said. “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 concluded: “Let’s say the talks are ongoing and I’d love to make it happen.”
Soul Sacrifice launched in Japan in early March, and by Vita game standards, it sold gangbusters, pushing well over 150,000 units at retail (and no doubt many more digitally). The game is set to come out in the States this coming Tuesday, April 30th. Our full review will be up then, but in the meantime, check out our impressions of the game’s first 15 hours.
