Soul Sacrifice’s Single Player Partner Is A Gorgeous Sorcerer

By Spencer . July 4, 2012 . 1:33pm

Soul Sacrifice, as Keiji Inafune explained to Siliconera, is designed primarily as a multiplayer game since players can sacrifice themselves for the good of the group. If you’re flying solo, Soul Sacrifice gives players a partner character, like Nyume.

Nyume is a beautiful sorcerer who the hero meets in the story. All AI partner characters learn from the player and change their tactics based on the player’s decision. There are more possible party members, but right now Famitsu only announced Nyume.



Soul Sacrifice revolves around the concept of sacrificing organs to cast powerful spells, but you can also use items as offerings. Sacrifice a giant bone and you can make a bone fist and crush enemies.



Players can also "sacrifice" stones to make a wall that defends against magic.


Soul Sacrifice is slated for release this winter in Japan.

  • She kind of reminds me of the prince in Prince of Persia 2008, I don’t mean that in a bad way either I think her character design is very good.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    I’d rip her spine out. If you know what I mean.

    • Testsubject909

      Better her than you huh?

    • DanteJones

      I’d sacrifice my bones for her any day, if you know what I mean.

  • Does she pull out her spine and use it as a sword too?

  • Vino (Tim N)

    It sounds something like the alchemy in Fullmetal Alchemist, all about the equivalent exchange to use their magic.

  • I love this community and all, but she’ll keep playing this solo for a loooooooong time…. Huh? More AI members to be revealed, huh? Any male members will be swiftly sacrificed to keep my strangely, yet wonderful harem to myself. :D  

    @RavenSchwann:disqus You have best described this system with your comparison. I’m just watching FMA for the first time and I’m loving it. 

  • Istillduno

    Soooo, odds of her turning into a monster and having to be put down at some point during the story, high or certain?


    I have never heard/seen this game before. Is anyone
    here familiar with this game, because I would definitely want to know more
    about this game? I am new to this particular game (by the way).

  • Been looking forward to this for a while now, and happy to hear more info on it. Nyume does look beautiful as they described, and I totally agree with what @usagi_san:disqus said. I AzureNova, even in the darkest of worlds……….

    • M’iau M’iaut

      But harems that exist only in a crazy boy’s head aren’t really harems.

  • Clever idea to make the players sacrifice themselves huh? I mean if the AI is a big old dude would you sacrifice yourself for him lol

    •  Yeah, but not sure if I want that cutie to remove her eyeball to shoot lasers from it, or to remove her spine

    • Solomon_Kano

      Now we have reason not to sacrifice ourselves. All other party members though? They’re fair game.

    • Testsubject909

      If he was an awesome character and a total bro while your own character’s backstory is painted rather suspiciously.


  • Guest

    Can I get her phone number

    • Testsubject909

      For that, you might just have to sacrifice your pride or who knows what else!

      •  I hear she mounts body parts on her wall over her fire place.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        But would you sacrifice a world to save her?

    Wtf am I sacrificing a stone for? Oh wait, scientists may have just found out today particles mimicking that of the Higgs Boson (after years of smashing protons together and coming up with different non-HB particles in the LHC).

    So, in a way, I guess all matter is imbued with a single type of particle at the sub-atomic level that ties all matter ever created in this universe with other forms of matter like us intelligent human beings. Ergo, a rock has just as much “soul” as you or I do and (while operating parts of this context in a fantasy setting) a rock can therefore be treated as a “soul sacrifice” in this alternate reality game as we humans (a sub-branch of a mass-created form in the universe) created the metaphysical notion of a “soul” and manifested this concept to the public records in the universe. 

    Here is my short-hand formula:

    All potential metaphysical powers + the expansion of the universe = an equally applied metaphysical power to all sentient and non-sentient bodies of matter in the universe.

    PM/[3] = |    Sv[1]+Pv[1] / 2     |  
                |  ________________   |    
                |        pv[s]-p[n]         | 

    (Be sure to use the established unit measurements of “souls”, “mana”, “feng shui” etc. per squared meter!)

    … Empirical evidence at its finest, ladies and gentleman. :D

    p.s. Do not try and make sense of what I wrote after “Wtf”. Just don’t.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      This post is indeed empirical evidence of something….

    • Code

      If I hold up my thumb up I can in effect block out the sun if I put it in front of my eye ◕A◕;

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Your thumb is bigger than half the universe! You can prove that every night!

      • jujubee88

        *smacks your hand as you put your thumb near your face”

    • Tl;dr. 

  • Göran Isacson

    Her… her outfit is practically modest. A torso-slit and some shoulder and upper-arm is the only skin that could be construed as enticing, her curves actually seem plausible, and she’s wearing PANTS. A game full of gore and grotesque body-horror that doesn’t decide to automatically make it’s female characters string-bikini armor wearing glamazons?

    I don’t know what crazy alternate dimension I’ve ended up in, but I think I kinda like it.

  • XiaomuArisu

    So a storymode with Dragons dogma style AI….I just got interested….again
