Siegfried Will Not Be The Main Character In The New Soulcalibur

Recommended Videos

It’s been a little while since we checked up on Soulcalibur director, Daishi Odashima, so let’s take a look at what he’s been tweeting about lately.


Odashima started out by talking about previous games in the series, as he’s done a few times before. You can read about some of his past tweets using the Soulcalibur tag. This time, the topic concerned the series’ main characters.


“Who does everyone think is SC’s main character?” Odashima tweeted. “I think, SE=Mitsu, SC1=Xiang, SC2=Nightmare? SC3=Sieg? SC4=Sieg.” He continued the next day: “Personal favorites aside, seems like everyone thinks Siegfried is the main character. At least for the more recent series.”


Odashima then dropped a quick hint about his upcoming Soulcalibur game: “All I can say for now is the main character for the new game will not be Siegfried. Keep it a secret!” He later added: “The main character cant be revealed yet so use your imagination for now :P All I can say is he/she will be deeply involved with the 2 swords.”


It would appear that Odashima’s in the good books of the higher-ups at Namco Bandai, for he also revealed that his “recent work” (this may or may not refer to Soulcalibur) is being graced with a higher budget. This was also revealed by way of a tweet, where he stated: “My recent work is to get a higher budget for the game from the company!”


Odashima later closed with a final tweet on the subject of the new Soulcalibur game, stating: “I’ve said this before but I want the new game to have better tempo and better pacing.”
