Soulcalibur: Lost Swords will have at least three playable characters. Mitsurugi and Siegfried were confirmed when the title was revealed. During a press event in Tokyo, Namco Bandai confirmed Sophitia will be in the free to play game too.



Soulcalibur: Lost Swords is a single player game and the goal is to collect loot. After you defeat enemies you can earn items like raw materials and weapons. New for the series are weapons imbued with elemental properties like wind and fire.

    As a Sophitia fan, I love how they’re pushing her as the main heroine after that lame crap they pulled in SCV. First she’s in WO3U, now she’s confirmed for Lost Swords. Good stuff, Namco.


      How could she be the main heroine when she died at the end of SC4, if anything this is about as canon as Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

      • Ooh Bee

        I said absolutely nothing about the story or this being canon. It’s just obvious they’re pushing her like I said. First, with her appearance in WO3U, now she’s back in the fighting game side and isn’t a lame mimic character.

        • DriftSlave

          Elysium =/= Sophitia….just saying…

          • Ooh Bee

            Yeah TECHNICALLY it isn’t but I didn’t mean it like that anyway. I meant how they reused Sophitia’s model and just turned it into a mimic character.

          • DriftSlave

            Same thing happened to Kilik. I mean they could have easily NOT put her in this game too. *optimism* I think most of the cut SCIV cast will return…with Brave Edges and Critical Edge moves. I think only Kilik is on the fence…*fans you better tweet Harada*

      • Atmey

        They could just do reboot, all the cool guys are doing it.

        I think it is a valid option, but should include all characters as non canon.

    Is it me or am I seeing a face there? O_o

    • Kaitsu

      It’s because it is a face.

    I don’t understand the objective of this game though. Since it’s single-player and all.

    • Ooh Bee

      To have fun? I know fighting games get their replay value from online play but we got SC2HD for that. This seems like a pretty unique idea to me and since it’s SC, I know I’m definitely trying it out.

      • Time Sage

        You mean we have SCV for that. That and it’s charcter creation are all are it’s only selling points, which was a major blow for us single player fans which the series had built up.

    • Brion Valkerion

      Probably using it to guage interest in the series at the moment and introduce new blood to the game. It seems to have worked well for DoA5 and Tekken to at least get new people to TRY the game.

  • leingod

    Soul Calibur V lite, with characters from Soul Calibur IV? Not sure about what to think of the game yet.

  • サレム

    I’m glad they are sticking with Sould Calibur V. And fans of the series get to see their glorified iconic characters again. Still don’t know why it’s not getting an online mode.

  • Muffum

    This alleviates some of my worries about the game, since I was initially getting the impression that it’d solely reuse assets from SCV.

    Only some of them, though.

  • Repede91

    The only thing that has me interested in this game is that the SC characters I care about are returning.

  • Prinnydoom

    Yes best girl is back ^__^ Hello Sophitia.

  • Hector Velar

    Shaq Fu starting to look pretty good by now…

  • Chiupon

    *attempts to forget Soulcalibur V was made*

  • Judgephoenix

    SC series is dead in my heart…. or should I say soul….

  • midgard229

    this is worse than i could imagine, wtf is this crap? they finally add sophi and they make it singleplayer???????

    its good for the people who play fighting games alone, and its free, but seriously, i wouldnt mind paying for a complete sc5 with the rest of the cast, the other 75% of the story and all the costumes, but NOooooooooo

  • artemisthemp

    So does Lost Sword have a story or is just shovelware?

  • PreyMantis

    Now, add Link.

  • Ronldbx6

    Sophitia looks sick here! By the way I’m not getting how this is a single player game. Is there going to be dungeons you have to run around and explore? All I saw was some SC5 updated gameplay.
