PlayStation Vita owners with PlayStation Plus and a penchant for snappy action-RPGs will likely look back fondly upon Soul Sacrifice, an overlooked but surprisingly competent entry in any gamer's library. For those who may have missed it the first time around, Sony announced Soul Sacrifice Delta, a retooled version of the 2013 release with additional content to pep it up for new audiences.
Among the new content is a bundle of new quests and areas to traipse through, spells, and additional equipment to pick up. Also, enemy AI has been altered to make the baddies a little less akin to mouthbreathers in conjunction with a new faction that offers players additional options as to what can be done with felled monsters. Weather effects have been added as well, so you can traipse through environments in the pouring rain and feel even cooler than you did before.
Sony's announcement also comes with good news. If you've already purchased Soul Sacrifice and want to keep playing on a new Delta save, all of your data will transfer over to the new game. This way, you can enjoy the new content without having to start over from the very beginning.
The series has taken several cues from Monster Hunter since its inception, building a strong case for the genre on the Vita, and if Soul Sacrifice Delta gains more traction than its predecessor, perhaps we could be looking for additional entries in the future. Delta has already hit store shelves in Japan, but American gamers can look forward to a May 13, 2014 release.
