Soul Calibur: Lost Swords on new-gen consoles? "Yeah, why not!" says Masaaki Hoshino

GR-UK writes: Lost Swords marks the next entry in the famous fighting series, and it was just launched on PlayStation 3 (more details here). Before the game's release, we caught up with Masaaki Hoshino at Level Up 2014 and talked about Soul Calibur's shift from store shelves to digital free-to-play.

During the interview we asked whether Lost Swords might ever make the transition to new-gen consoles. Hoshino-san had this to say on the matter (via a translator): "The Soul Calibur franchise has always changed to the new consoles; sometime that was the Dreamcast, sometime that was the PS2, sometime that was the Xbox 360. So it pretty much depends on how the market really wants, so if the Xbox One or the PS4 is very much moving at that time, yeah why not!" (PS3, PS4, Soulcalibur: Lost Swords, Xbox One)

That would be cool for PS4/XBOne owners, but lets get it working on the PS3 first.

No, just give us a current gen Soul Calibur 6.

I'd rather have a SC game that was built from the ground up for PS4/XboxOne.

I fully agree with you. No ports please. I want a true next generation SC game. Love the franchise.

I agree but what's the harm in having something to occupy fans until they can get a full next gen SC6?

no soul c or tekken yet for vita ?

We'll probably see something if sales kick up a little more. Vita has been doing (pretty) well in Japan lately. If sales pick up a little more, developers and publishers will probably take notice.

There needs to be a decent base before developers start to take risks.

Edit: Also, like PrinceofAllSaiyans said, "SSF X Tekken"

Get it on ps3/xbox360 Gen first. Although porting an error screen probably would be quick and easy.

More people that have access to the game the better.
