Bandai Namco can deliver weapon-based fighting games, which can push the adrenaline. If we talk about such games, it is impossible to miss out on the Soulcalibur series. There are seven primary video game instalments as well as many media spin-offs including music CDs and a manga book series. Soulcalibur was first published as an arcade game in 1995 and was then adapted to video game consoles. More recent versions have been produced exclusively for consoles and have grown to incorporate online play options.
The series’ core element, set in a historical fantasy rendition of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, is mythological swords, namely the evil weapon Soulcalibur and the later blade used to combat it, Soul Calibur (written as two words, but the game’s title is spelt as one word). While it has evolved across its different editions, certain of the characters and gameplay features have stayed similar. After the release of Soulcalibur II, Project Soul became the internal Namco development organisation in charge of the Soulcalibur franchise. Despite the fact that the games are normally ascribed to Namco, the team chose its moniker to emphasise the group’s shared achievements.
The sixth main instalment of the Soulcalibur series came out for the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows and Xbox One in 2018. Soulcalibur VI’s gameplay follows in the footsteps of previous Soulcalibur games by pitting two weapon-wielding warriors against one another in a 3D environment. Many basic gameplay components, such as 8-Way Run, Guard Impact, and character creation, were retained, but new features, such as Reversal Edge and the newly redesigned Soul Charge, were added to the conventional formula. With a slow-motion effect, the Reversal Edge allows players to defend against an approaching attack and instantly strike back, giving them more defensive alternatives.
Soul Calibur 7 Release Date for PS5, Windows (PC) & Xbox Series X
The SoulCalibur 7 might come with major sets of character updates. If we focus on the release timeline of the main entry titles and the spin-offs, the latest Soulcalibur 7 might come out after 4 to 6 years of Soulcalibur VI. Hence we can aim at 2023-2025 as an ideal period for the release of the new main entry title of Soulcalibur 7. Fans would be eager to see the fresh catalogue of fighters in the upcoming series.
