At PlayStation’s 2011 Holiday Showcase GamerFitNation’s BlackBible got a chance to speak to Brian Upton, Senior Designer for Sorcery. It was quite clear to me that the game’s developers have completely redesigned Sorcery from its original look shown at E3 2010. Key changes such as the PS Move Sphere no longer changing colors when using new magic. This is due to technical issues with the game and PS move’s tracking system. The game will also utilizes Alchemy as a key game play & story function.

What stood out about these changes and what was shown was that it was all for the better. Originally Sorcery looked like a PSN title that was made for the move. In some cases that was bad because that meant it had no true in-depth game play experience. From what I saw from the new direction its taking I’m lead to believe that Sorcery will be a true title that utilizes the PS Move wand and Navigation controller greatly. I personally can’t want for this game to come out and now with the redesign, I’m even more eager to get my hands on the title.
