Remember “Forsaken Souls”? Sony registered a domain for a game by that name in the U.S. recently. When the domain name was reported, it was widely assumed that Forsaken Souls would be the localized title for Soul Sacrifice on the PlayStation Vita.

 

Then, this morning, Sony announced that Soul Sacrifice is headed to North America and Europe with its title intact, which made us wonder just what Forsaken Souls really was.

 

It turns out that Forsaken Souls was, in fact, considered as a western title for Soul Sacrifice. On the European PlayStation blog, a Sony representative replied to a reader: “‘Forsaken Souls’ was a regional WIP title. The game will be distributed in Japan, North America and Europe under the name of ‘Soul Sacrifice’.”

 

Thanks to Siliconera reader, TNA_Lewis, for the heads up!
