E3 2012: "Soul Sacrifice" For the Vita Makes an Appearance

Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune's latest gets a new trailer for E3.

The upcoming dark fantasy title has an interesting hook, whereby everything has a tangible cost to your character. So if you want to use a spell, you may have to give up a personal possession, or even a limb, or even a life.

Here's a fairly lofty description of the Vita title from the PlayStation blog:

Cruelty is a reality in our life, and we have to make sacrifices and pay costs on a daily basis. Inafune-san wanted to blend this “reality” theme into a fantasy world filled with magic, and create a new type of gaming experience that relied on the player making sacrifices in order to obtain great power. Another key feature of the game is the concept of “sacrifice.” In order to use sorcery during fierce battles, you must be willing to make a sacrifice – ranging from personal belongings to a limb, maybe even a life. If you simply think of this game as a “dark fantasy,” then your expectations will be betrayed – but in a good way.

No word on a U.S. release date on this one, but we'll be sure to keep an eye out for more information.
