Let’s face it, the PS Vita isn’t exactly setting the shelves alight over in Japan, and the lack of a Monster Hunter title is surely contributing to the poor figures.
Picked up by retail blogger Sinobi, it looks like there’s going to be an announcement event for a new brand unannounced PS Vita game titled “Soul Sacrifice” on May 10 at the Tokyo International Forum Venue.
It’s unclear yet whether this is a first party title, but there’s a website that currently resolves back to PlayStation.com, so it’s looking likely.
Apparently the themes include “a story about magicians” with evolved co-op battling and “high spec” graphics in a “realistic, fantasy world.” This week’s Famitsu magazine has an advert for the game, which demonstrates that Soul Sacrifice will feature four player co-op and “huge monsters”, but much more is expected in May when the event kicks off.
Hopes are high, but if this is something Sony are developing, chances are it’ll play to a very specific crowd and hit the ground running.
