Soulcalibur: Lost Swords is Out Today on PS3 / PlayStation 3

50°
26w ago - Namco Bandai Community Manager J Kartje announced that Soulcalibur: Lost Swords PS3 is out today on PlayStation 3!

To quote: Hey gang. The endless story of souls and swords marches forward. Starting today, PS3 owners will be able to download our latest Soulcalibur title, Soulcalibur: Lost Swords, for free.

That's right, I said free! Soulcalibur: Lost Swords takes everything you like about the series - the fast and fluid, weapon-based combat, the beautiful graphics, the customization options - and wraps it all up in a free-to-play game worthy of the Soulcalibur legacy.

We'll also be bringing back some fan-favorite characters that missed the fight in Soulcalibur V, including Sophitia and Taki. Be sure to keep a look out for other returning characters as well as time goes on.

There are some changes to the Soulcalibur formula that we are implementing in Lost Swords. The first one you're going to notice is that the game is single-player only and revolves around players making their way through a series of quests to gain items.

These items can be accessories such as clothing options or new weapons to give your character extra flair or increased stats. These upgraded items will be essential as you tackle later quests.

Soulcalibur: Lost Swords isn't...

Video: Soulcalibur V PS3 Interview: Sharpening the Blade

250°
156w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a Soulcalibur V PS3 interview and video today dubbed Sharpening the Blade below.

To quote: It's a tale of souls and swords, eternally retold. And on January 31st, 2012, that tale comes full circle on the PS3 with Soulcalibur V. Set 17 years after the events of Soulcalibur IV, Soulcalibur V is a return to the fast, furious feel that marked earlier entries in the series.

I was able to put a pre-release version of Soulcalibur V through its paces to get a feel for the new gameplay tweaks and refinements. After a few intense bouts, I noticed that Soulcalibur V moves at a slightly faster clip than SCIV, and that the Soul Gauge gem has evolved into a full-blown Edge meter that powers Brave Edge attack enhancers and the ultra-damaging Critical Edge finisher. I also spotted new defensive maneuvers, such as the Quick Step evasion and a Just Guard parry.

The fighter roster is getting a shakeup as well, with a core group of classic characters being supplemented by a large cast of mysterious new combatants (read more here), headlined by guest character Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed.

After going hands-on with the game, I discussed Soulcalibur V's gameplay evolution with "Filthy" Rich Bantegui, community manager for Namco...
 

SoulCalibur V for PS3 at Comic-Con: Ivy, Natsu, Z.W.E.I. Detailed

250°
170w ago - This weekend Producer Hisaharu Tago has shared a SoulCalibur V PS3 update from Comic-Con 2011 including details on the Ivy, Natsu, Z.W.E.I. characters, as follows:

I wanted to go over the SoulCalibur V news we announced at this week's San Diego Comic-Con to the PlayStation.Blog and all of its fans.

SoulCalibur V (SCV for short) is a bit of a particular project. There are two main reasons for this: The first one is because Project Soul, the development team behind the SoulCalibur franchise, was disbanded after the release of [Register or Login to view links] for the PSP system.

The members were spread throughout Namco Bandai Games to work on other projects within the company. Soon after that happened, [Register or Login to view links], the Director of the TEKKEN series, called on SoulCalibur fans to speak up and send a message to Namco Bandai Games to develop a new SoulCalibur title. As a result of Harada-san's request, we received many passionate notes from fans allowing us to reform Project Soul for SCV.

The entire Project Soul team, myself included, appreciates the outpouring of support from fans and wanted to reflect this with a new Project Soul logo.

Namco Unleashes Another in Soulcalibur IV

50°
333w ago - First came Yoda, and with him, Darth Vader. And though both would take to the field of battle in Soulcalibur IV, they would do so across seperate planes of existence, perhaps seperate timelines, wherein one small shift lead to the appearance of one on the PS3, and the other on the Xbox 360.

But now, there is another.

Such came the proclamation from Namco-Bandai earlier today, as they revealed that the Jedi Master and the Sith Lord would not be the only ones engaged in lightsaber combat and wielding Force powers on the stage of history. Both versions of the anticipated weapon-combat fighting game will include some new blood, in the form of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.

The Secret Apprentice will appear straight from LucasArts' upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed title, which takes place between Episodes III and IV, wherein Vader trains his own understudy in secret, carrying out Vader's orders while working to not expose his existance.

This will mark the first time since the poorly-received Masters of Teras Kasi that the Star Wars franchise will have been privy to one-on-one lightsaber combat in a true fighting game sense. SCIV will arrive on its respective consoles on July 29th, while Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be available for all consoles come September 16th,...
