Like many of the established fighting game series out there, Soul Calibur has been around for a long time. It actually celebrated its 20th anniversary not too long ago, in fact. It might not have as many entries as some of its peers like Street Fighter do, but it still faces the same main challenge: staying fresh while still maintaining its core identity. Soul Calibur hasn’t always managed to meet this challenge gracefully, but its newest entry might just be able to pull it off. At the very least, it seems to have the necessary potential.
