Soul Calibur is my favorite fighter so color me excited.
As played out as they are guest fighters should include Cloud and Sephiroth. I think they would blend into the SC world perfectly. Personally I'd want Cecil and Kain but Cloud and Seph make more sense and would be more profitable.

Update: Scratch that. Characters from Demon's Souls would be awesome on the PS3 version.

Tekken Blood Vengeance that is the first i heard of that game..Tekken Tag Tournament 2 not even released :D I guess namco thrive on fighting games :D

Tekken Blood vengeance is a cgi movie

from the link it sounds like a pure fan-service.

Lavitz20124518d ago

Soulcalibur 5 will be delisted next week on PS3 and Xbox 360

Soulcalibur official Twitter: "Valiant Warriors - Soul Calibur V is taking its final curtain call on the stage of history and will be sunset on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on June 19, 2023. The base game and all associated DLC will no longer be available for purchase. Thank you for your continued support."

This is why guest characters shouldn't be on the base roster. Im sure Ezio and the whole Assassin's Creed stuff license expired and that is why it is being removed. The same thing is probably going to happen to Soul Calibur 6 in 10 years.

I doubt a lot of people still played the worst SC game over 10 years after its release on dead consoles.

blackblades103d ago

Right whoever wanted the game would've had it by now. Also physical is usually the better option

gold_drake103d ago


alot of games have been delisted recently.

Meanwhile several big games are going digital only. Good omen for the future...

MadLad103d ago

I've been mainly gaming on PC for 12 years now. I don't think there was ever a game that was actually taken away from me.
Even the multiplayer-focused games, with their servers typically being taken down, you can still host your own.

Not sure why People are so against digital. You still need online infrastructure just to update your games or to patch them. You're stuck to online/digital one way or another.

Nyxus103d ago

Most games play just fine without an internet connection. There are also other reason aside from preservation, digital games are often more expensive (at least the one I'm buying) than what you can find through deals in stores. But most of all I just like to be able to actually own the games as physical objects, being able to lend them out etc. And be assured that I can still play them in the future. Sure you can probably emulate them, but I prefer to play on console and I'd rather play an actual copy than an emulation anyway.

I'm not against digital in itself, I just don't want to be forced to go digital because the physical option is taken away. Just give people the option to either get it physically or digitally, that way everyone is happy and it's also the best way to preserve games for the future.

Make your peace with it. It’s the direction the industry is going in.

XiNatsuDragnel103d ago

Well industry is pretty much dead in that case.

lucian229103d ago

Ranking The Soulcalibur Games From Worst To Best

Bandai Namco's other premier fighting game series, Soulcalibur, has been around for over 25 years, but what game is the best?

Really loved Soulcalibur on Dreamcast. Truly blew all competition away back then when it came to graphics and fluidity, and I liked the roster and arenas.

Haven’t bothered with the newest release because sadly fighting games these days have become too expensive. They’ll release a base-game, then add all the interesting characters through expensive season passes, so unless there’s a Complete Edition released (and if I’m still interested in the game by then), I’m better off just shrugging my shoulders and skipping it completely.

The direction the fighting game genre has picked for itself means it will now only appeal and sell to the hardcore fans of the genre, while the mainstream gamers will spend their money elsewhere.

I played Soul Calibur 2 on the PS2, it was great and I got pretty good at it, decimated most of my friends at that game. I recently got VI on the PS4 and it just doesn't have the same magic, plus it seems to have stuffed some extra mechanics in there that just complicate it too much for me, although I really do agree they're too expensive, I've always wanted to get all the DLC characters for Central Fiction, but it's way too expensive.
