While it hasn’t had quite as many games as its Bandai Namco brethren Tekken, the weapon-based 1v1 fighting series Soulcalibur is still one of the development studio’s biggest franchises. The first entry, Soul Edge, was released in Japan for the original PlayStation during December 1996, meaning its console anniversary has arrived.
To celebrate, Bandai Namco has released a new video marking the milestone. Check it out:
Of course most worthy of note is the final sentence in the trailer: “The Legend Will Never Die”. This may be in reference to an upcoming title – afterall, we haven’t seen a new mainline Soulcalibur game since 2012’s fifth entry.
We’ll be sure to let you know if and when Bandai Namco makes any further announcements regarding the Soulcalibur franchise..
