Soul Eater Reaps A Multiplatform Fighting Game

By Spencer . November 4, 2008 . 8:34am

seater Square Enix’s Soul Eater manga is a hot licensed property. Namco Bandai just finished their Soul Eater game for the DS a few weeks ago and there is already another game in development. However, Soul Eater: Battle Resonance is quite different from Soul Eater: Conspiracy of Medusa since it’s a versus style fighting game.


Details about the fighting system are hazy, but the screenshots make Soul Eater: Battle Resonance appear to be a fighting game. One unusual decision is Soul Eater: Battle Resonance is getting a PSP and PlayStation 2 release when it comes out on January 29. The PSP version has ad-hoc play and since players are fighting on separate screens they can control their camera angle. The PlayStation 2 release has anime clips from the first twenty four episodes to watch in the Soul Theater and alternate costumes for characters like Maka and Black Star. No word if the graphics in Soul Eater: Battle Resonance will differ between releases, but we’ve seen other PSP to PlayStation 2 ports before. Set your expectations low now so you won’t be disappointed if Soul Eater: Battle Resonance was designed primarily for the PSP.

    I f*cking love PSP Anime Fighting Games. :D

  • KeroKiro

    So, will this game be released in the U.S. too?

  • Enflict

    The series isn’t even licensed in the US yet, so even if it does come over here it won’t be for a long while.

    Please excuse me while I have a fan seizure.


    Okay. This game looks like the Reborn fighting game for PSP. I hope it turns out just as fun! :)

  • I’ll admit, after seeing so much coverage of Soul Eater here, I decided to check out the series, and it’s pretty cool!
    Too bad I’ll probably won’t play any of the games any time soon.

    Square Enix has shown interest in bringing Soul Eater to the USA, but that doesn’t mean the games are coming anytime soon. Maybe in a year or so we’ll see some version of Soul Eater on store shelves. Something else interesting to note is Namco Bandai had an official translation for their DS game at TGS….
