Soul Sacrifice just came out in Japan and in early April the game will get a major update. Sony Computer Entertainment plans on supporting the game post launch with new maps, quests, and monsters. The first update has a unique map called Goliath where you enter the body over a gigantic warrior. The map has gimmicks like digestive fluids to dodge to make players feel like they’re diving into a world of organs. Kind of reminiscent of the Ki’s Body scenario in Final Fantasy Legend II / SaGa II.

 

The April update also adds Dullahan a corrupted knight that turned into a monster because of its lust for violence. Dullahan holds its head in its hands which can be used as a weapon.

The Behemoth is a victim of gluttony. Before becoming a monster the Behemoth was a regular boy. His parents disowned him after he ate these delicious apples that transformed him into the beast below. The Behemoth now uses apples to attack warriors in Soul Sacrifice.

Sony will also add a new quest and support for ad-hoc party for Soul Sacrifice.

    … Oh my god, Wispy Woods, is this your origin story? ;__;

    Also, I totally expected an insides dungeon in a game like this. Hopefully you burst your way out in some bloody mess. Maybe you even get to fight white blood cells! >:D

  • Raze

    Remind me a little about DMC 3…Well you know…Inside that worm thingy….
    And Behemoth…Use Apple to attack?Haha…

  • Göran Isacson

    They thought it was over with Audrey 2. They didn’t know he had arranged a family reunion…

    Also oh my God the trees roots are the boy crawling around on all fours. That is grody. Almost as weird as that strange jellyfish thing on the characters head, wonder if that’s a spell or a monster-attack.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Crazy. That Behemoth design is crazy weird and crazy cool at the same time. Also I remember the Dullahan being one of the first few monsters that were introduced. Thought he was in the vanilla game, not DLC…

    That being said I’d still support this game anyway. This comes out in April, huh…? =(

  • Solomon_Kano

    All of the monster designs in this game are fantastic in the most unsettling way possible, but that Behemoth takes it to a new level. At first I was like “It attacks with apples? lol” but then I saw the roots. Oh gosh, the roots.

    If the folks behind Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night tried their hand at Snow White, I think we might’ve seen him there.

  • MyBodyIsReady

    Mixed feelings on this. On the one hand – Oh my god this looks so badass SOUL SACRIFICE woooooo!
