Next-gen installment of weapons-based fighter heads to Sony and Microsoft platforms, set for 2008 release.
After the announcement of Soulcalibur Legends coming to the Wii, some Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 fighting game fans might have felt a little left out. Namco Bandai today confirmed that it too will be able to rejoin the weapons-based fighting franchise's fray, as Soulcalibur IV is in development for the latest systems from Sony and Microsoft.
The next game is being developed by Project Soul, the studio behind previous entries in the series and will include new modes, characters, and a new battle system. Namco Bandai is saying the game will "propel the fighting genre into the next-gen era" and is also promising realistic, interactive environments and better artificial intelligence.
Soulcalibur IV is set for release in 2008. For more details on the title, check out GameSpot's new preview of the game.
Hey Franruelas3, maybe you should "do" some research yourself rather then "making" research. Final Fantasy XIII is coming out on the Xbox 360. P.S. I am not what you call a fanboy of any particular system, but I have a hard time with idiots who sit and spout out a bunch of BS when they do not even know what they are talking about.
soul caliber 3 flat out had no story...horrible and some characters that were thought of a couple days before release date
I agree with Do0sh: PS3 has MORE EXCLUSIVES this year Than the XBOX 360.......... -Metal Gear Solid 4 -Resistance -Resistence 2 -Prototype -Resident Evil 5 (which Xbox 360 stole from ps3 as an exclusive) -Final Fantasy XIII (Confirmed) -Final Fantasy Versus XIII (Confirmed) -God of War 3 -Killzone 3 -Little Big Planet -Socom 4 Make some RESEARCH before you buy a console, talk bad about a console, or buy a game.
@Otakahn I agree man, I played SC3 and was dissapointed on their direction, they totally F'd up my Ivy and I had to relearn her all over again and the game was so unbalanced. oh yeah they **** up ivy man,i used to play her in sc2,and in sc3 alot of **** changed about her.So i used nightmare!!
madterps WROTE: Namco needs to beta test Soul Calibur 4 in the arcade before they release it or else it's gonna end up like SC 3. I hope Namco would focus on beta testing before focusing on porting it for both system. I agree man, I played SC3 and was dissapointed on their direction, they totally F'd up my Ivy and I had to relearn her all over again and the game was so unbalanced. But if they are smart, they can design the game in a way that would allow for patches to fix bugs and balance issues which would be acceptable. And for those who wonder yes it will be online play as of announced at E3. :)
All I can say about Soul Calibur IV and online play on xbox360 and PS3 is.... DAMN, IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Titanicles I hear ya man, I just hope they bring Spawn or somebody from xbox into this game...By the way Ivy looks cool and very nice... I am sad not many people mentioned a certain somebody else...He looked the best.(Big change...)
mrfrieze > What makes you think it shouldn't be on the 360? The 360 is a console that plays video games. SC4 is a video game, thus they work togehter. It doesn't matter who gets the game, whether you can play it or not. I hope they bring some of the good content on SC2 and 3 and put it on 4. I liked 3's Tale of the Sword but it needed the be more of an RTS than what was given.
SOUL CALIBUR IV!!!!! This is the main reason I bought the Xbox 360 and when I saw that on some websites it said PS3 exclusive I got really annoyed, but now I know its on the 360 aswell I am overjoyed. Hoorah for Soul Calibur!
ivy looks stupid, that better change. the soul calibur is clrealy in my top 5 games, hope this one does more of the same, just looks prettier!
This is one fighting game that I was waiting for & here ir comes. Whether Tekken 6 comes on X360 or not,I don't care as long as I get SC4.

Going multiplatform with a console with a 13 million user base instead of remaining exclusive to one console (no clue which one he's aiming for, presuming Wii since PS3 IS getting this game... another well-needed library builder). The nerve of those jerks! Hell, they should just scrap Ace Combat 6 and Beautiful Katamari, fly to frieze's house, and conference on how to be a truely successful developer! Sorry, when fanboyism reaches the level of choking common sense, it becomes almost comical. Soul Calibur Legends aside, we're getting Smash Bros., kid. That's all the fighter the Wii needs and then some.
mrfrieze: Just another game that does not belong on the 360. So I wont be buying it. Good job losing a customer. if u were never buying it in the first place how did they lose you
mrfrieze: Just another game that does not belong on the 360. So I wont be buying it. Good job losing a customer. Wow, well if Namco lost you as a coustomer I say goodridence and for your place there will be 11mill more 360 owners to buy the game. SC2 was not exclusive but no you gara come here and be all pissed off. serisoly, learn how to share fanboys and learn that third party titles are fastly becoming a thing of the past.
Namco needs to beta test Soul Calibur 4 in the arcade before they release it or else it's gonna end up like SC 3. I hope Namco would focus on beta testing before focusing on porting it for both system.
Hopefully, this better than the last version of Soul Calibur. The last version was not that impressive visually....
I lurved the second one. I was pissed when the 3rd was PS2-exclusive. I can't wait for this one! En Taro Adun! Oops, wrong game!
D@mn it... multiplatform=average graphics (it'll still look hot, but not as much as it can if it stuck to just one console). It aint no thang though...go PSWii60! Oh yeah...YES! THE SOUL STILL BURNS, baby, burns! 'I motivate them with things like donuts, and the possibility of MORE donuts to come' -Homer
I haven't really been a fan of Soul Calibur since the Dreamcast. At least SC will be multiplatform again though.
Namco just saved me 600 bucks by releasing releasing this for the 360, hopefully it will have online multiplayer.
Just another game that does not belong on the 360. So I wont be buying it. Good job losing a customer.
i hope the new characters will suck less than the last ones. i mean - an umbrella and a small knife as a weapon? cmon..
I've only played SC II and that was on the GC a long time ago. I had a great time with that, so I'll be anxiously awaiting SC IV on the 360.
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
