We've been complaining for weeks that there just aren't enough new games available for the PlayStation Vita, and the first six months of 2013 looks awfully barren.

But at least there's one title on the horizon that could be fantastic, and a great option for action/RPG fans who love intriguing twists. It's from developer Comcept (founded by ex Capcom boss and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune); it's called Soul Sacrifice , and it has been officially dated .

It'll debut in Japan on March 7 and it'll be ready to go in North America on April 30. In addition, they revealed the pre-order bonuses- Those who place their deposit on the game will get an exclusive pack of in-game content that boasts two costumes and three magic items, which consist of a Spirits' Flamepike, a Spirits' Blightstone, and a Spirits' Fulgurwood. Those should prove helpful, yes?

You'll also receive the Japanese voiceover pack for free as well. If you don't reserve the title, you'll have to pay for the Japanese voiceovers at a later date. Inafune has done everything he can to deliver a top-tier product for Vita owners, which we all have to appreciate:

"I have put all my passion and soul into the game's concept and my talented team has made an incredible effort to create the best game it could ever be. I'm confident that we've created an extremely engaging game that you will enjoy playing."

Yes, we're definitely hoping Soul Sacrifice will be a AAA title for Sony's new portable. It really needs one.

Fingers crossed it gets a good reception. The Vita can't afford another lukewarm release. It needs a few 2013 goto games!

i hope so keji, i hope so!
fact of the matter is seems that crapcoms not interested in bringing monster hunter over to the vita, probably because of a briefcase from ninty.
so this will be the first, and probably last shot for a while were going to see at a proper JRPG game for the vita!

I'm slightly annoyed by the lack of backwards compatibility for games, but it's not a serious drawback.

I'm incredibly annoyed by the lack of controller backwards compatibility. I understand I'd sacrifice some functionalit by using PS3 controllers with a PS4, but I won't be able to afford a new system, games, AND controllers. With four kids at home, I won't be getting a PS4 until there are games a bunch of us can play together – and we can actually afford the hardware to do so.
