This was posted a few hours ago on Daishi's Twitter.
Hopefully I will be able to announce something mid May.
Obviously, who knows what will happen from now until that time. But then again, Namco could have stayed tight-lipped and not mentioned anything, so we'll see what happens. Hopefully we will get to hear something soon.

** UPDATE ** - NBGI has set up a new "teaser site" for an upcoming announcement which they are calling "Beginning of a New Chapter". Right now its just a countdown clock that ticks down every time the wind blows the pages over; but its looking like we can expect an announcement on May 11 (depending on your timezone). What makes us think this is a Soulcalibur teaser? Check out the sword above the book...

Return of the Jaxel-Dome is this week!

For those that don't know, The Jaxel-Dome has been the mecca of the Soul Calibur community here on the east coast going back to the last days of when Soul Calibur II was played competitively. It's also where I was first introduced to the community and to playing the game offline for Soul Calibur IV.

Anytime that I come to the Jaxel-Dome, it never feels like I am just at a tournament. For me, it's a family reunion with a tournament as an added bonus. It's been almost 5 months since the last Jaxel-Dome tournament. If you weren't there, then you missed out on alot, but you can click here to check out the videos. So if you are in the Central Jersey area, make sure you come through. You don't want to miss this tournament.

This coming weekend will have a lot of hot Soul Calibur action to check out with GVN Winter Brawl 5 in Philadelphia, PA, and with World Game Cup in Cannes, France.

GVN Winter Brawl 5 will feature singles and a 3 on 3 team tournament for SC4. After NEC XI, I could not wait for this tournament to get here since I did not compete in the singles tournament where RTD blew away the competition using and dressed as The Apprentice.

World Game Cup will also feature singles and a 3 on 3 tournament for SC4, as well as the World Team Cup which is the main event of WGC where the World's Best Nation in SC4 is crowned. Back in 2004, the United States defeated France in the grand finals. In 2010, France defeated the United States in the first round and moved on to later defeat Italy in the...

Help thugish_pond get to Cannes

Yo, it's Malice. If you don't know, Soul Calibur is huge in France. Last year, the community was able to pull together and help get a team to Cannes so that they could compete in the World Cup.

This year will be the first time that the event will be streamed live which will be big for Soul Calibur, however we do not have any Americans who are able to go, except for Woahhzz.

So far, the Europeans have already setup a donation drive to help get him there. I'm hoping that we can do the same. I'll be doing what I can locally to help get him there. If there's anyone that wants to help out, you can go so by going to and place your donation.

EDIT: Since Woahhzz is unable to attend, the help will go towards thugish_pond making it to Cannes to compete in the World Cup.

You can also go here for more information. It has been 2+ years since the split from occurred and created. With a new project in the works, we could not move forward with the rift that still existed. It was also not good for those new to Soul Calibur and looking for information, but become lost due to not being updated and other issues, and with the active community here on 8WayRun.

If there is information on that you need, grab it before it is gone for good. I'm glad that a middle ground was achieved. In the end, it...
