Soulcalibur director, Daishi Odashima, hopes to make an announcement regarding the new game in mid-May. On his Twitter feed, Odashima posted: “Hopefully I will be able to announce something mid May.”

 

As always, Odashima also posted a few other bits and pieces of information about the game, this time about controls. “This time we plan on reducing commands like A+K so moves are easier to pull off on pad,” Odashima tweeted. “Difficult commands only limits the moves players can use but changing them suddenly may make things feel strange. The balance is hard.”

 

Odashima himself prefers to play Soulcalibur with an arcade stick, but added that there just isn’t a stick that’s for him. “I prefer stick but there’s no stick in the world that I like so I don’t own a ‘my stick’,” he revealed. “At work I use pad most of the time.”
