What appears to be a leaked schedule of DLC for Soul Sacrifice has appeared on AGB. It shows what will land on PSN May 28, June 11 and June 25. Looking around the Internet a bit, a couple more sites cite NeoGAF as the source of the leak, but there isn’t a link back to the forum so I can’t find it to glean more information. The June 25 DLC on the schedule is the same DLC which releases in Japan for free next week, so while it looks legitimate, I’ll keep the rumor tag on it. See for yourself through the links.

Soul Sacrifice is out in Japan, and on May 2, free DLC containing two new enemies will arrive on the Japanese PS Store. The enemies are Ghost and Ouroboros, and players can use new forbidden art into an Angel in order to defeat them. It will cost them their bones though, apparently. They will also move slower, but their angelic wings can wound enemies and the form can also heal allies. Trailers for the content are below alongside new artwork. The Vita title lands in the US on April 30 and in Europe on May 1. Via: DualShockers, AGB.
