Soulcalibur’s Soul To Burn Once Again


Tekken series producer, Katsuhiro Harada had a little holiday treat for fans with a new Tekken Tag Tournament 2 trailer. But that isn’t all he had. Yesterday, Harada signed off with a tease that he had one more little surprise in store for the next day.


…and this is it. At the link (and above) is the Twitter feed of Daishi Odashima, designer of Soulcalibur IV and Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny. Odashima’s first and only tweet (so far) says just one thing: “SC is back! Get ready, fans!”


Harada had a bit more to say about the new project, although, he refrained from giving away any of the details you might be hoping for.


Harada says that Odashima is a hardcore Soulcalibur player, so he understands where fans are coming from. Odashima’s own Twitter bio says he’s been playing since the first Soulcalibur game, and joined the development team during Soulcalibur III.


“Of course we can’t comply to every request, but is really wants to hear your opinions so let him(@Daishi_CALIBUR) know what you think!” Harada told fans. He continued: “I can’t say anything abt the platform or release date yet. The only thing I can say is that the SC project has bn officially put in2 motion.”


Harada has quite the fan-following, so it makes sense for him to be the one to introduce Namco fans to the new Soulcalibur project. “I’m really glad that we were able to start work on a new Soul Calibur! Of course, I will continue to support this project,” he stated.


He concluded: “Until now, there was a lot that I couldn’t share with u all & it was pretty tough. But it’s due to a lot of hard work that this was possible and because the fans and Odajima didn’t give up.”
