How Soul Sacrifice Delta is changing by letting fate decide

An update to PlayStation Vita game Soul Sacrifice is due to hit Japan early next year, bringing it with it new monsters to battle, refined graphics, new characters and costumes and improved AI.

It was reported last week that the new version will also add a third option when choosing to save or sacrifice fallen enemies or allies. Soul Sacrifice Delta...
