Sony Computer Entertainment will release a demo for PS Vita action RPG Soul Sacrifice on December 20 in Japan, it has announced.

In the demo, you will play through the first part of the main scenario, “Sorcerer’s Test,” with companion sorcerer Nimue. Three bosses can be challenged. Multiplayer quests will be available via ad-hoc and wi-fi communications options. Save data from the demo can be imported into the retail version when it launches on March 7.

    That pic is gorgeous.

    Man, I’m worried about the fact that demo save data can be imported. Hopefully, the demo is not account-locked…

      Pretty sure it will be,as content from another account isn’t applicable to another. Still, no need to worry; game is going to be so awesome that it won’t matter.

        Well, it will matter to ME that I can’t play the demo without resetting my Vita to my Japanese PSN account and getting another memory card…
        IIRC, most demos aren’t account locked, and you are free to transfer them from your PS3 after downloading from whichever PS Store you got it from, but this one has me a little worried…

    Kinda wish I hadn’t sold my Vita…the wait for March is going to be unbearable.

      Bad call, dude, especially if you’re into Japanese games; the vita is already in a great season right now, but Q1 2013 is looking friggin’ sexual

    I really want to play this game. (Still need a Vita…)

      Same boat, keep missing deals.

    I gotta hurry up and finish Little Battlers W then; I’m probably going to stick on my JPN account and play just this until Monster Monpiece comes out. I don’t have a doubt in my mind that Soul Sacrifice is going to be the most authentic experience on the Vita yet, and I friggin’ LOVED Gravity Rush.

    Hoping this turns out amazing, lots of good ideas in this title.

  • PrinceHeir

    i am hype about this :D

    March 2013…. Import SS or buy MH3U locally?

    Damn, why do I even have to think about this? It’s obviously going to be Sould Sacrifice.
