Keiji Inafune Already Has an Idea for a Soul Sacrifice Sequel

Posted by Sammy Barker

Mega Man creator in talks with Sony

Soul Sacrifice is not quite available in Europe and North America yet, but designer Keiji Inafune is already dreaming up a sequel. In an interview with IGN, the former Capcom man noted that he’s actively started discussions with Sony regarding the prospective follow-up, which we suspect will get the go-ahead following the success of the original release in its native Japan.

“I’m interested in making other console games for PlayStation, not just for the Vita,” said Inafune, perhaps hinting that the title may be cross-platform next time around. “Soul Sacrifice is something I specifically designed for Vita using [the] hardware’s specific features. To drive Vita sales even more, I have an idea for a Soul Sacrifice sequel. I’m actually approaching [Sony] regarding this project.”

He added: “Let’s say the talks are ongoing and I’d love to make it happen.”

You can read our thoughts on Soul Sacrifice’s demo through here. We’ll have a review ready ahead of the game’s release next week, so don’t worry if you’re still sitting on the fence. While you wait, let us know if you’d be interested in a sequel in the comments section below.

@artemisthemp I think it would work cross-platform. It definitely suits the portable format I totally agree, but I reckon it would be ace if you could transfer your progress between handheld and console.

The art direction's so good, too, this type of game would look nuts on a PS4.

@MaxiM_PL Haha, I think it's awesome that he seems to have aligned himself with SCE after Capcom. Sony should let him build a new first-party studio, because he's obviously a super talented person to have on board.

@get2sammyb I would love nothing more than to see this guy spearheading more Sony ambitious projects - also make CA$HCOM jelly in the process ;]

How about we release the first game and see how that sales before talking sequel It's nice to know that this could become a series though, happy about that

@get2sammyb agreed, I would love for Sony to let Keiji Inafune set up another first party studio, for alot of people out there, that would be a dream come true. Ever since I seen pictures of the metroid prime mega man game that Capcom cancelled, I've lost all hope in Capcom as a smart company. Keiji Inafune was basicly the only reason why most people liked Capcom.

I still want him to work on a new Megaman X or Zero game damn I miss those two.

I'd love a PS4 version of the Soul Sacrifice. It would be even better if it had cross controller support so that it could still utilize the Vita's features.

@TheRealBatman 80% would want it for ps4. Almost no one would go for vita version. Now people are forced to buy a vita in order to play this game

@Sanquine Why would they be forced to buy a Vita just to play it? Sony would obviously make it available for the PS4 and Vita. Kinda like how Monster Hunter is available for 3DS and Wii U.

Also, since when was making a system selling game considered a bad thing?

I don't think he means Soul Sacrifice for PS4. I think he speaks about something else that he can create exclusively for PS4. He is too talented to create one game at a time =)))...

@TheRealBatman Soul sacrifice should stay at ps vita . If you are to cheap to buy a ps vita thats your choice. I f*Cking hate xbox 360 but i loved to play gears of war. So i bought an xbox

@Sanquine If Keiji wants to make Soul Sacrifice 2 for console, then he will and there's nothing anyone (but Sony) can say to stop him. I'm one of the only people who doesn't complain about the Vitas price tag, so I'm pretty sure I'm not too cheap to buy one.
