Well, that's great news! I wondered what Compile Heart were going to do on Vita next; was expecting them to keep Neptunia on PS3 actually, but I'm pleased Vita is getting it.

Now localise, Nippon Ichi!

As for actual gameplay it's fantastic.

Yeah. I'm pretty surprised, actually. I didn't expect much more than a cheap Dynasty Warriors knockoff with ridiculous boobies. But the fundamentals are really, really good.


It actually reminds me a bit of a fighting game like BlazBlue, although not nearly as technical. It has perfect guard/countering, strong attacks for guard break, health sacrifice for limit break to counter combo stunlocks, special attack gauge, lots of varied combos especially if you consider the 3 forms each character has. The aerial combat is not bad either, although not as deep as in a Tales game.

 

Is it a 100% action game or has it got some RPG/esploration elements in it?

For "RPG/exploration elements" I mean fetures like in Dissidia, such as selecting special attacks, chosing equipment, some freedom in path selection...

You level up which increases stats, unlocks new combos, and passive boosts. In terms of equipping skills and gear, no. The only equipment is costumes and accessories which have no impact on combat, purely aesthetical. I don't know what you mean by path selection, but there's 4 schools each with their own decently long storyline, and 20 characters each with their own short side story. You can do these in whatever order you want, although the Homura team is locked until the other 3 schools are cleared unless you use the code I posted a bit back. There's no real map exploration either if that's what you mean.

If by RPG you mean Real Panty Game, then yes. There are 100 different panties for you to collect.

Nice numbers! SS had a good start. So it's around 136000. Not bad for a new IP.

And it's really nice to see Vita above 3DS :P



Not too bad for Soul Sacrifice. I would have liked more, but oh well.

Nice Vita numbers!

Counting the double pack as two Soul Sacrifice sold 136k copies, that's not too shabby.

Yeah. I wonder what digital sales are. Should be just north of 150k all told. I just hope it has good legs and good word of mouth. It looks like Inafune solved everything I hated about Monster Hunter.

From past trends, the digital sales are around 20-40x the number of PSN ratings for early sales. SS currently has about 900 ratings which means it should have sold 18k digital minimum, but could have gone up to 36k as well.
