Lift me up

As its name so eloquently elaborates, Soul Sacrifice will force you to surrender your body or belongings for power. This dynamic, according to creator Keiji Inafune, has the potential to create interesting conversations between players.

"When you're playing together with your friends, it could be entertaining because it creates a new dialogue," he told the PlayStation Blog. “If my character is dying, and my friend decides to sacrifice me, I might say, 'Hey, what are you doing?! Don't sacrifice me!'"

As with other games featuring moral dilemmas, your choices will have an impact upon your appearance. "So if you keep on saving, or keep on sacrificing, the visual effect will look different," Inafune continued. "You'll look more angelic if you keep saving, more evil if you keep sacrificing."

Soul Sacrifice is aiming to trump Capcom’s Monster Hunter series. It’s due out later this year in Japan.
