Keiji Inafune is working on the game with development being done by Marvelous AQL.|
Quoting Andriasang for the rest of the post...
The "Sacrifice" part of the title refers to your magic. When you cast a magic, you'll need to make payment through objects. You can use things like stones and trees as payment. But for more powerful magic, you'll be able to sacrifice your body parts. For instance, you can sacrifice your finger(s) to call out a Gleipnir. Sacrifice your eye(s) and you'll call out a Gorgon.
The big catch for Keiji Inafune's PlayStation Vita action title Soul Sacrifice is not the "soul," as many had initially expected, but the "sacrifice." As detailed earlier in the day, Soul Sacrifice has you sacrifice body parts to perform powerful magic.
More information due tomorrow and Friday.
Weekly Famitsu lists the following sacrificial magics. While we listed these as summons earlier, they appear to be just magic attacks.
Excalibur: You stick your hand down your throat, pull out your spinal cord, and use this as your sword.
Gleipnir: Chop off your five fingers and perform a punch with your extended bones.
Gorgon: Pull out your eyeballs, and use them to blast out magic beams
Gungnir: Your bones and nerves emerge from your body and attack
Why would you torture yourself to kill your foes? This is actually part of the background story. You play as a slave who serves a cruel sorcerer.
It appears that you may be fighting people like yourself. Screenshots show massive creatures who apparently used their powerful magic too much and lost their human form.
