Sony has confirmed that Soul Sacrifice Delta will be coming to western markets, after weeks of speculation and leaks including a listing on the Australian rating board, and it will be launching on May 14th. Players will be able to choose which faction to join and fight for, as well as new Archfiends, quests and arenas. The other two games confirmed are Freedom Wars and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, though release dates for both titles are as of yet unconfirmed.
The story of Freedom Wars is that prisoners have a million year sentence put on them from birth, and the only way to reduce that sentence is by completing rescue missions. The game will support four player Ad-Hoc multiplayer and eight player online multiplayer. You’ll also be able to customise weapon loadouts and the way your character looks too. It is expected to release this year.
Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines is a JRPG where players control a Japanese clan that are cursed with a lifespan of just two years. You have to find a way to break the curse, enlisting help from characters of Japanese mythology, and strengthen the clan so each generation is better equipped to deal with the curse. The art style gives me an Okami vibe, which I really liked.

Looking forward to soul sacrifice delta but I still don’t understand if it’s a add on or a whole new game?
From what I understand, it’s an expanded version of the first game. You can transfer your existing save over and carry on with your game in Delta.
Looking forward to Freedom Wars!
Freedom Wars look cool, shouldn’t be long before we get a gameplay trailer.
Oreshika looks damn nice. Not normally a huge JRPG fan apart from more mainstream series such as Final Fantasy, but it looks awesome visually so I may pick it up. I’m also looking for more games to play on the Vita, so that helps.
Oreshika does indeed look like has has buckets of potential, here’s a trailer that’s just been released, no game play but still worth a look.
