Bandai Namco has announced Soulcalibur VI, showcasing a brief teaser of the game this evening during The Game Awards.
Soulcalibur VI is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.
The game was revealed on stage by Tekken 7 producer Motohiro Okubo.
"Working together with Harada-san I felt a great responsibility to continue Tekken's legacy of delivering the most dynamic and hard-hitting action within the fighting game category," said Okubo. "This was no easy task but I truly believe that we succeeded in fulfilling that goal.”
“Utilising the lessons that I learned on Tekken 7 I am ready to fully take charge of a new project.”
Bandai Namco’s weapons-based fighting game series began life as an arcade game called Soul Edge in December 1995. It was ported to the original PlayStation in December 1996, though it was renamed Soul Blade in Europe, Australia, and North America. The first sequel, Soulcalibur, was released in mid-1998.
