Lancelot, Perceval, And Gawain Are Three Of The 100 Allies In Soul Sacrifice

In Soul Sacrifice, you have companions who will join the main character on his journey. Each ally has unique abilities to fight against monsters like the Harpy.


In ‘Free Quest’, the player will be able to bring up to two companions to join the party from a total of 100 companions you can meet during the game.  Some of these companions come from the main story quests in Soul Sacrifice.



Here’s a look at three twisted companions who are based on the Arthurian legend.




Perceval makes his appearance in the “Children of the Demon” scenario. He’s a mysterious wizard full who has an odd habit of scratching his chest until it bleeds. When asked why he does this, Perceval replies by saying “It’s a disease”, in a lighthearted manner. The main character is concerned by the imbalance of Perceval’s nature as a human being, nonetheless, they continue to travel together to achieve their common goal. Over time, the main character will learn more about Perceval and his past and everything he’s been through.





Gawain appears in his own scenario called “The Werewolf’s Agony”. He has a history with a demon known as Werewolf, who killed all of his friends in the past. In order to avenge his comrades, Gawain has been hunting the Werewolf for the past 10 years. Notice his eyes? Gawain lost one eye in one scuffle with the Werewolf. It is still a mystery as to why the Werewolf was after Gawain in the first place, but he decided to join the main character’s group in hopes of achieving his goal.




Appearing in the scenario “The Knight’s Vengeance”, Lancelot is a prominent wizard and henchmen of King Leode. The King is known for disliking wizards, but even he couldn’t ignore Lancelot’s talents, although Lancelot himself never accepts compliments from anyone. He has an unknown objective in mind and took his position to help achieve his goal, which will require him to have support from the people he serves. Lancelot invites the hero to talk about a certain truth.


Soul Sacrifice is slated for release on March 7th in Japan and April 30 in North America.

    What does “Free Quest” mean exactly? Hope I can bring AI partners on the regular story quest if I wanted to.

    • heartless141

      probably Free Missions, as in it’s not tied to the story

  • TheExile285

    100 AI companions? Holy cow that’s a lot. I hope there are a crap ton of free missions

    At this rate I have no idea if they’re named after Arthurian legends because their stories are some strange adaptation of those old myths, or if they are completely unrelated to anything Knights of the Round table-esque and are just named that way… because. The dating sim looks more Arthurian than these premises, at this point.

    Also holy heck 100 companions? I do not foresee most of them having either a memorable story or much differences between them…

    • Ferrick

      at this point, i think that’s a bit obvious… the spine sword (spell) called excalibur, merlin, the round table, probably a corrupted/magical version of the arthurian legend

      • Göran Isacson

        Mmm, but in that case what happens to the knights joining together? So far it seems like they are all characters in separate stories with no real connection to each other, which is why I felt there was an element of “just because” to the naming. After the first trailers focused so much on the monsters and the initial story information said nothing about finding others to go on a big magical quest, it just makes me wonder why they’re tieing it into Arthurian myth at all.
