Here on Achievement Hunter, even though the name may indicate otherwise, we try to provide service to those who own both an Xbox 360 and a PlayStation 3.  So any awards we usually list here for games that are on both systems have unlockable Achievements and Trophies that go both ways.  But every once in a while, Sony deserves a little due with a guide of its own on PS Vita.

For this week's Achievement Hunter, we're stalking Trophies in Keiji Inafune's terrific adventure Soul Sacrifice that has you slaying demons and occasionally sacrificing allies for the sake of survival.  It's a deep game, but one that rewards as you play through it, progressing levels and eventually becoming powerful enough to take on the sorcerer who's holding you captive…maybe.

(As usual, proceed with caution, there are mild spoilers ahead…)

So here now is a guide for all the Trophies in the game, including the cherished Platinum, and how you can earn them all…
