Soul Sacrifice Demo Lets You Carry Save Data Over To The Full Game

By Ishaan . April 16, 2013 . 12:00pm

The Soul Sacrifice demo, which will be available today in North America (and tomorrow in Europe), will allow you to transfer your save data over to the full game, Sony have confirmed. The demo consists of the first chapter of the game, and allows for both offline and online multiplayer.


In addition, if you do carry your save data over to the full game, you’ll receive an exclusive bonus item—the Spirits’ Heart, which lets you summon a stone golem to fight for you.

    the demo will be glorious

    • GreekGod88

      i sure hope so!
      i dont like MH Genre but i want to try this looks very interesting

      • Fango

        I think the people that couldn’t “get” into monster hunter will definitely find this game much more enjoyable. It’s not as tedious, IMO, and the gameplay keeps you on your feet. In MH, it’s mostly chasing monsters around.

        • Vash bane

          you left out the most tedious of them all…H-KO’S

  • JuhRo

    2 hours or so.. Excitement is too weak of a word.

    • heartless141

      i got 20 hours out of the japanese one.

      • JuhRo

        Well, I meant 2 hours of wait time until it comes online to download.. which is now around 18 hours now. :/

  • Curan_Altea

    Time to spend hours playing the Soul Sacrifice demo!

  • Unit 13 did the same thing, wish this was more of a trend.

  • I did spent like 20h with japanese demo. Now I can spent even more knowing it won’t be for nothing this time :)

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Only a few hours now… only a few hours…

    • Vash bane


  • Takui Nanao

    good news

  • ShadowDivz

    I kind of wanted to not play it. I wanted my save file to be comepletly fresh.
    But i could use that stone heart to fuse with another spell…..

  • Solomon_Kano

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, I can’t wait to play this!

  • Cant wait to finally play this. Should probably start charging my vita beforehand.

  • Demeanor

    Mmmm almost time to switch back to my US account, what with SS and Muramasa approaching… but I gotta draw a curtain on Senran Kagura first.

  • knight

    anyone have it yet?

  • Prinny Dood

    • RoxasTheUnknown1

      • Gigan22

        It’s 11:40pm est and the demo still isn’t on there. At least I’ve been passing the time with Injustice…

        • Gigan22

          This was posted on a blog comment on Destructoid. Give’s the lack of a demo some context.

          “We can confirm that today’s PS Store publish will be delayed due to ongoing scheduled PSN maintenance. The extended PSN maintenance duration is due to intermittent authentication errors experienced during the routine maintenance. We are working quickly to minimize the inconvenience to our customers and will continue to provide updates to the PlayStation community via @PlayStation. We’ll also post updates here as we get them.”

          From PS boards.

  • Kensike

    It’s 7 PM now here in Arizona, still no love or signs of Soul Sacrifice on the psn store. Anyone else have this problem?

  • Ben Sylvia

    I hate the PSN Store’s update schedule.

    For some reason I doubt I’m gonna be able to get it downloaded in under an hour. And end up having to wait until tomorrow night, T.T

  • Give me the demo now before I lose my mind……… :)

  • Is it just me, or is the demo still not there :/

    • Skye Johnson

      Not just you. According to the Playstation Twitter account, the update is being held back because of PSN maintenance carried over from Monday.

      • Ah, I see. Thanks for the update, sigh guess I’ll download it in the morning v_v

        • Skye Johnson

          You and me both : )

          • JuhRo

            It’s afternoon of the next day.. and still not there. :/ Gotta give it to SCEA to screw up the one day, the whole year.. the vita owners have been looking forward to.

          • I know right, I JUST checked it hopeful that it’d be there, but nope.

          • Skye Johnson

            Yeah. I know I have. Reminds me of the fiasco that just happened with the Persona 2: Eternal Punishment release on PSN not long back. That was a terrible example in SCEA doing things wrong.

  • Lester Paredes

    It’d sure be nice if they’d update their store. I checked @ 9pm and nothing. I checked their online website at midnight and nothing. I can’t get onto the PSN due to my place of employment retardedly blocking access one random day and allowing it the next. Guess I’ll just have to wait until tomorrow.

  • pure_white

    Very curious about english voiceovers.
    Japanese’s ones were creepy, distressing and painful… perfect for this game. :v

  • artemisthemp

    I already play 3 Chapter of Soul Sacrifice demo and I really enjoy the game.

  • Göran Isacson

    Question- how large is the demo?
