A combination sequel-UpdatedRerelease, ''Soul Sacrifice Delta'', released in Japan on March 6, 2014, and in the US and EU on the Playstation Network on May 13 and 14 of 2014, respectively. It will receive overhauled graphics, systems, and AI. There will be an enhanced focus on co-op play, a number of new spells, more areas, monsters, and archfiends based on [[Creator/TheBrothersGrimm the Grimm Fairy Tales]]. Players will be able to choose between the two old factions and the third new one: Avalon, {{Knight Templar}}s who seek to destroy all monsters, no exceptions; Sanctuarium, a splinter group of sorcerers who believe that monsters can and should be saved; and the new faction the Order of Grim, a cult started by a sorcerer who noticed the EternalRecurrence of the Twin Gods' feud and who's followers bring hope to both sorcerers and non-sorcerers alike, in hope of somehow ending the vicious cycle. Which organization the player chooses to join will change what mission rewards and types of magic they can gain.

* VideogameCrueltyPunishment: Actually this trope could be ''inverted'' since the game constantly punishes moral choices, while giving easier outcomes and rewards to those who choose selfishly (in the vanilla game; Avalon-affiliated players still gain points by sacrificing). In one boss battle, choosing to save your enemy will not only drag the battle, but ''drain half of your current health on the spot, giving it to your enemy.''
** Multiplayer isn't much better, if you save a team-mate, half of your health goes away to heal him. If you choose to sacrifice him instead? Your spells get a nice recharge, and a very powerful attack erupts from the sacrificed, instakilling all normal enemies and harming quite a bit the bosses. If you have a lot of life levels, even the reward for saving enemies will be much less interesting than sacrificing them. A bit of healing? At that point your healing skills will do a ''lot'' more in one go.

* LimitBreak: At low health, you can perform ultimate sacrificial spells called Black Rites. While they are powerful, they have negative side effects that do not go away until you fix them with Librom's tears.
