As most of you probably know by now, the "BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Fighting Games 2016" panel has recently taken place at San Diego Comic-Con. There was no stream for this event, but thanks to Twitter we have some information about what was discussed. Below you can see the tweets from a twitter user who was present at the event.

I currently have no other details from this panel, but if you were present at the event, then feel free to post in the comments and I will add it to the OP. The takeaway is that if you want a new SoulCalibur, then you should make sure to spam the SoulCalibur Facebook group to express your interest.

For those who don't know, Gamescom is an event similar to E3 where developers showcase their new video games. The event takes place in Cologne, Germany on August 18-21. A link to their website will be available below. Please note that tickets are currently sold out if you were planning on attending.

Bandai Namco will be presenting three different titles at this year's Gamescom. PS4Germany recently tweeted out that their titles will be Tekken 7, Xenoverse 2, and a new IP. Could this IP be the game we all know and love? We'll find out as time goes on.

As we all know, the social media outlets for Soulcalibur have been the home of Namco advertisements and Namco advertisements. However, the Facebook group is looking to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Soulcalibur series by updating their page regularly with fun posts.

You will also notice that they have updated their profile picture to celebrate as well. The future is looking good for our series if they are willing to put in this much effort today. It has been about two and a half years since SOULCALIBUR: Lost Swords was released. Let's see what news they have in store for us.

Comic-Con is taking place on July 21-24 in San Diego, California. Katsuhiro Harada, Michael Murray, and @MarkMan will be at the event to mainly discuss Tekken 7. However, during their segment on Friday, they will be talking about the Soulcalibur series due to the 20th anniversary of Soul Edge. Below is the information block taken directly from this link.

It is worth noting that live streams and recordings are not allowed at the panels in general, so I am assuming that it is a private event. If anyone has a link to a Comic-Con live stream that shows off this particular block, then please provide it in the comments so that I can update the original post with it.

(FaceBook Rumor) At a licensing expo, Namco has Soulcalibur listed on one of their investors only presentations. Further, someone captured this hyper enlightening image:

In summation, Namco may be doing something with Soulcalibur. Given that box, I'd guess some Soulcalibur costume DLC for Berseria, but the info's so thin that I'd strongly caution people hearing whiffs of rumors to keep their expectations in check at this time.

Recently, there has been an influx of interest in SoulCalibur 2 online play through the Dolphin Emulator. If you don't know what that is, it is an emulator that you can install on your PC which allows you to play games featured on the Gamecube and Wii. Since the online runs smoother than SoulCalibur 2 HD Online for the PS3 and Xbox 360, you may want to try this as an alternative to that game. A step by step guide was made by @songohanx in a different thread, so I will essentially just copy and paste it into the spoiler. Hope you all enjoy some classic Soulcalibur matches!

Hey everyone! Over the course of a few weeks, I have been in contact with the Outcast Odyssey creators and have finally obtained all of the images that feature Soulcalibur characters. The images with the red borders have been inserted into the wiki of each featured character.

Since the weapons are not characters, Soul Edge was put in Nightmare's wiki while Soul Calibur was put in Elysium's wiki. If you want to support the artwork, then make sure to download the game or like them on their Facebook page. It is also important to note that if you choose to download the game, then you would be able to see these images as holographic cards with animated backgrounds. Enjoy the gallery (Click images to enlarge)!

A 3-4 month hiatus from Project Soul's social media services has recently ended. What pieces of news are coming around this new year? You guessed it! Things that are not Soulcalibur VI. This brings up an interesting question. How big is the team's budget, and how much time are they being given for the next installment? Let's visit what they've said in regards to their current side projects.

We'll start with the most recent posts on the @hoshino_calibur twitter account. For those of you who don't know, Project Soul has been partnered with the developer of another Namco mobile called Outcast Odyssey. This is the second batch of character artwork to be plugged into the game. If you want to play this game on your iPhone or Android, the characters that have been added to Outcast Odyssey are Yoshimitsu, Taki, Sophitia, Mina, Elysium, Algol, Tira, Aeon, Hilde, Zasalamel, and most importantly Talim! I will link the awesome artwork of these... Click here to continue reading...

The official SOULCALIBUR twitter account (@hoshino_calibur) has confirmed today that the PS3 version of both SC5 and SC2HD are currently on sale in the PSN store. They will also be available for streaming play on Playstation Now (at least in Japan) on April 14.


Playstation Now is a cloud based service that allows you to play older Playstation titles on your PS4. With PSNow, you should be able to play various PS3 games on your PS4, with your PS4 peripherals. I can't speak for the quality of this for fighting games, since fighting games are far more sensitive to lag than other genres... but it's been relatively successful for other types of games.
