The soul of Soulcalibur 6 is so strong that a few minor issues don't do much to bring down one of the best entries in the series.
Transcending history and the world, a tale of souls and swords, eternally retold.
I hope it sells well and becomes popular for tournaments. Tekken 7 is already a hit with tournaments, hopefully this will be another Namco hit :)
SC is one of my top 5 fav fighting games.
Sadly, SC6 won't be playable on Switch.
yah , but still better than SFV , at least it is on 2 consoles.
Namco said they are looking into making it for the Switch. I mean since the Switch beats the PS4 in sales, why wouldn't they?
Because the PS4 has an install base the switch won't be able to get for the next few years. Or do you have trouble understanding how industries work?
I wonder why theres not a switch port... it could def run this game.
Perhaps they'll port it later like Doom and Wolfenstein. When you target a game for a certain level of power it can be difficult to downgrade and optimize your game for a weaker platform - even if the Switch can definitely play some version of this game.
Namco hinted they may start working on one when the other versions are done.
Thats 2 of Nintendos biggest problems... Not getting day one releases on AAA 3rd partys and charging full price for a game weeks months and years after its initial release
Well, that is also on the publishers. They didn't think the Switch would be a hit before it was released. Doom Eternal is gonna be day 1 with the others. It is gonna change in 2019. Now people see how successful it is.
Wait, you said beat the ps4 in sales?... in japan. Very funny 🤓👍.
What are you talking about? It beats the ps4 weekly in Japan and it's winning a lot worldwide now. Not all the time, but what was your comment about????
@michellelynn0976 “Sigh” you sure are upset. It will come to Switch, but Bando Namco will have to downgrade the game to make sure the performance is stable. That part where you said “it’s winning a lot Worldwide now” is just deluded. Sure, the Switch is done better than Wii U and PS4 in Japan, but it can’t surpass PS4 sales worldwide. You really need to think twice. I’m sure Switch can surpass Xbox One, but not PS4.
Good to see is back in former glory.
I was getting this regardless of the scores this gets. This looks to be the best SC since SC3.
What about Siegfried?
8.9 :P I love ign reviews :P
Yeah, IGN review score is underwhelming. Just give the game a 9 already.
My wife and I have been waiting eagerly for this. My only complaint is no new female character but otherwise it is good. I can't wait to replace the entire roster with my own characters >:D
I played the beta, it's by far the most fun and simple AAA fighting game I've ever played
Another PS4 exclusive hit... shit, Im sorry, Im so used to Sony churning out hit after hit that I didnt reaise that this was a multiplat. My bad. ;)
LMAO when I first started reading that I was like "WAIT WHAT IT IS!?" and then kept reading.. totally believed you. Sony is almost doing TOO good.
nice, i didn't expect such a good score for this game i'm a big fan of namco's fighting games like sc and tekken, geralt's combat style in this game is accurately like withcer series
Just a general thing about fighting game reviews. Fighting games is the genre you cannot trust review site. They barely touch the fighting mechanics. When watching their review videos all they do is button bash. All you need for a fighting game to score high is lots of modes and big story mode. Modes that are all shallow. Fighting games are all about strategy and reading the opponent which you cannot do with a CPU opponent. It is really unfair how fighting games are reviewed they are not given as much attention to the game mechanics compared to any other genre because the reviewers are lazy to bother learning. It is why games like mortal kombat get really high reviews despite having poor fight mechanics / balance which is the the most important thing for a fighter but since it has a big story mode and single player modes its reviewed well. Whereas games like guilty gear or KOF are not reviewed well even though they have some of the best fighting game mechanics and gameplay elements.
I prefer DOA's combat & animations so I'll wait for that. Samurai Spirits looks like the weapons based fighter that'll do it for me.
I prefer SC's combat & animations because it has jiggley boobs. ;)
They all do. lol.
