Soul Sacrifice art takes the Vita to a dark place

Soul Sacrifice was featured briefly during Sony’s startlingly good gamescom Vita showcase, but the platform holder did send over some shiny new art for Keiji Inafune’s gory RPG.

We still don’t know much about Comcept’s game except that the magic system allows players to make sacrifices to produce various effects. Sacrifices range from bits of wood and stone the player collects on their journey right up to their own limbs and – this artwork suggests – maybe even whole party members. It’s for the good of us all, Aerith.

The RPG is expected either late this year or early next year in Japan; and northern spring in the west.
