Tekken, SoulCalibur creator reveals new PC fighting game Rise of Incarnates

New free-to-play PC game will offer "unfettered 3D battles"; scheduled to launch in second half of 2014 in the Americas; sign up for the alpha today.

Tekken and SoulCalibur studio Namco Bandai today announced an all-new fighting franchise called Rise of Incarnates. The game, which promises "unfettered 3D battles," launches in the second half of 2014 for PC.

Namco Bandai says Rise of Incarnates was designed by the teams behind Tekken, SoulCalibur, and Gundam Extreme. It features 2v2 gameplay, as well as a "multitude" of characters, and real-world battlegrounds.

You'll play as an "Incarnate"--a human that has mythical powers. Players have their own unique skills and powers, and the game will allow you to craft your own playstyle, Namco says. A teaser trailer for Rise of Incarnates shows some of these characters and moves in action.

You can sign up for an alpha test for Rise of Incarnates today through the game's website, though there's no word on when it will begin.

Could we get a port of Tekken and Soul Calibur for Steam first? Please? Pretty please? With an Ivy bosom-sized cherry on top?

I was excited, then I saw free to play...

I'm not into Tekken, nor SC, (they feel like rock paper scissors to me), but Gundam Extreme? That's as good as 3D fighters/action hybrids get.

I also hate the idea of free to play, but since it does look like it has Gundam VS gameplay I'd keep an eye on it.

Also, weird female bukakke.

So from the deep combo and gameplay mechanics of Tekken and Soul Calibur, to a clumsy, choppy, unsmooth gameplay of MMORPG. I'm sold >_ >

Fighting game on PC, now that's a smart idea, because those are really popular right.

F2P fighting game with zero local co op (judging by the game play footage, if indeed that's what it was) and a "main" character that looks like a long lost, roided out Jedward sibling...yeah. I'll probably pass.


Self edit: The blonde guys name is Jedreck. I guess Namco's girlfriend streams shitty Eurovision music videos on the television as well...

its free so i will check it out . Looks decent i guesss.. When i saw the title i was hoping for a true fighter. Seems namco want to shake things up a bit.. this will either flop hard or be successful.. I dont see a middle ground here

zzzz...

I'm bored of games looking less and less like games and more like slightly sh*tty renders of the real world with some crappy looking plasticky characters thrown in.

Can I have some games that look more like games again, please?

I think Nvidia will partner with them to simulate boobs on real time rendering with Physix.

As long as f2p stays on online only games, i'm good

Being F2P, I immediately doubt if the gameplay and overall experience will be as solid as that dude's hairstyle.

I like it. Also look how moderate the boobs are.

That guy looks like Paul Phoenix mixed with Dante from Devil May Cry. I love the Tekken/ Soul Calibur series so I'll check this out.

I don't get you guys.  One minute you want a new IP... then it happens, and you bitch.

what about Tekken 7 and Tekken vs SF ?

namco what are you doing ?

zzzzz.... can we please get Soul Calibur 5 or Tekken Tag tournament 2 on PC instead?

Also, why not a Tekken, SF, and SC mix? I think it'd be pretty cool if they were able to balance it. Maybe give the fighters a fast forward and back step to avoid swords? I'd be playing that forever if it had a create a character.

Oozyrat

The combat looks pretty cool, but I'm really looking forward to a new Soul Calibur (create-a-fighter!).

What a Mortal Kombat/ Injustice rip-off, no thanks~ =(

Zzzz. Where's Tekken x SF/ Tekken 7?

@hexadecimal255 I imagine this game exists to test the waters of PC gaming. If it succeeds, you can start hoping for Tales games on the PC.

@prime_l Those games have been out so long now... I would be surprised if either of those gets a pc port. Don't see why the next games in both franchises wont get pc ports though.

@jack00 Depends on the f2p format there going for. it would be a bit disappointing if they went the traditional f2p route. If they followed KI and keep micro-transactions for cosmetics and characters then im cool.

@amaneuvering  I think you should go to every game you believe doesn't fit your criteria and complain about it... that will definitely satisfy your request.

@C-THREE  I disagree for the second part. He actually had Guile's face from SF game.

@DrKill09 I am all for new games, but so far everything new has been free to play or multi player only. The former being something I hate. Free to play games have not ever proven to me that is a viable option. It sucks. I want my games complete. So yeah I'll bitch about the way one of my favorite fighting games developers are thinking.

@DrKill09  I just want some 3d fighters on the PC. No offence to Capcom as the Street Fighter series was my favorite fighting game growing up, im just not a big fan of 2d fighters anymore and thats all the PC has atm

@Quarkzquarkz  Considering Tekken was a Virtua Fighter ripoff, yet kicks ass, I don't see how this is a bad thing.


And if you're going to rip off a fighting game these days, MK9 and Injustice are the perfect choice.


It's nice to see more fighting games on pc.

@daviz88  Let them try new things I say, Tag 2 is still on three platforms and is bloody amazing! 


No rush for Tekken 7 in my view. This maybe the beginning of a new great IP, and towards gamers that have never tried Tekken or Soul.

@lanmanna @registeredpunkI did not claimed it was MMORPG, I compared the gameplay to MMORPG gameplay (which is slow and boring) So no need for your loaded question, BRO!

@Nightelf123 @DrKill09 f2ps can be bad but they haven't even mention what kind of transacrion model they would be going for yet.
