Soul Sacrifice Get Demo-fied: Saves Transfer To Full Game

The Playstation Blog announced that they will release the demo for Soul Sacrifice today on the Playstation Network. The demo is fully functional and includes the first chapter in its entirety. And that's not all! Not only does the demo have the entire first chapter of the game, but it has local and ad-hoc multiplayer as well as letting you save your progress to transfer into the full game! 

You can read what Keiji Inafune said about the demo after the break:

The number one reason for the Soul Sacrifice demo to have a lot of content was to show the users the full attraction of Soul Sacrifice. We knew that cutting out a small section of the game and saying, ‘Isn’t this part fun?’ would not show the users the full potential of the game. We figured that it wouldn’t make sense if the users could not have the ‘I want to play more’ feeling. So, we decided we want to provide, ‘at the very least,’ this amount of the game for the users. That is why, if you compare it to a standard demo, this became such a substantial piece. But we are confident that this will not become something negative where the users will feel like, ‘We played enough.’ After we released the demo version in Japan we received many voices, saying ‘[I] want to play more’ and ‘I want to get more hooked on this game.’ That is why we believe making this demo with this amount of volume and detail was a success.

The demo is available today on the Playstation Network. The multiplayer portion of the demo will be deactivated on April 30th upon the game's release. If you like the game you can still pre-order a copy and get three extra Magic Offerings, two costumes, and the Japanese Language Pack for free!
