Bandai Namco has announced Soul Calibur 6, the next game in its long-running fighting game franchise.
Bandai fighting game chief Katsuhiro Harada took to the stage at The Game Awards to reveal Soul Calibur 6’s debut trailer, which includes snippets of gameplay. It’s built on Unreal Engine 4.
Gamers have been waiting for years for a new entry in the franchise, among sporadic teases from Bandai Namco Entertainment, and a lot of deafening silence. The game will come for PS4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam) in 2018. We also got the announcement of the man who will be at the helm of the new game, and it’ll be Tekken 7 Producer Motohiro Okubo.
The Soul Calibur franchise debuted on December 20, 1996 on the original PlayStation with Soul Edge. It took the Soul Calibur name only in 1999 with the second game of the franchise.
