Yes, that’s what the new Soulcalibur game is called. Namco Bandai officially announced the title at a press conference in Dubai today.
“Soulcalibur V is a continuation of SC4,” says the game’s director, Daishi Odashima. “It’s not a spin-off or a different series.” Odashima was talking to his fans over Twitter about the game right until the announcement itself was made. Amongst other areas, Odashima wishes to improve the game’s story mode.
We’ve been following Odashima’s musings on Soulcalibur V for a few months now. You can read more about his thoughts on the upcoming title via the game’s tag.
Update: “The story of V is set in the future of IV,” Odashima says. “The main character is a young man named Patroklos. The hardcore fans should know who he is!” Odashima might be referring to Sophitia and Rothio’s son.
