Soulcalibur 5 a Definite Possibility?

With the success of some community driven fighting games, it seems that Namco has realized that they too should try to be a bit more active amongst their respective fighting game communities. Since then Katsuhiro Harada, the producer for the Tekken and Soulcalibur series has been very active in talking with his fans. A few days ago, one of our local veterans, Enkindu, discovered a short mention of Soulcalibur on Harada-san's twitter. In short, he mentioned that Namco could possibly put work into a new Soulcalibur game if the interest was high enough.

Well since then, several members of these forums have been sending tweets to Harada, asking him for the game, showing him that there is indeed an interest in a sequel. Well as of one hour ago, it seems that Harada has informally responded to my tweet in which I requested a new Soulcalibur game, and that he involve the folks here at 8WayRun. I'm not sure if Namco even knew we existed, so I felt it worth mentioning. While not making any guarantees, he did say he would talk to his staff about it... and that we should be patient. A pleasant surprise waking up from Summer Jam 4 to say the least.

UPDATE:
Well Harada-san has responded to our enthusiasm and asked us to stop anonymously trolling him. He has instead asked that we follow him on twitter and facebook before we post any comments or tweets. It looks like he wants to see a personal face to our community. He also said he's looking for a large quantity of signatures before they would realistically put thought into another Soulcalibur game. Because of this, 8WayRun member malice has set up a Facebook petition for us all to sign.

I want back the story mode from the Dreamcast episode. Some challenges were very fricken hard, but nontheless it was lots of fun back in the day.

And most important: Bring back the Hwang! Besides Cerv he was my main in SC1 and I want him back. This fag clone is low tier anyway...
 
I wonder why Mr. Harada asked for a petition...
SCIV did better than Tekken 6 considering the sales...
Why is this game underestimated by its own company?

Harada asked for people to join his Twitter and Facebook. I started the petition to make things organized. But the game is made in Japan where it's no where near as popular as Tekken, it's largest market is in America, and with those from Project Soul being released, a new game was probably not on their radar.

SC4 still sold more than T6 and BD still did well on the PSP, so it makes no sense to get rid of those who were on the development staff if there were plans to make a new one. That's just my assessment.
 
just a thought here but maybe we should ask them to make some patches to SCBD(with our help) and bring it to consoles because they could do that pretty quick. Then we would have a more balanced sc4 with damp in it and possibly kratos.
 
I've signed it. People from the Soulcalibur.com forums are also teaming up with members of 8wayrun.com to sign it as well.
 
@babalook

That is exactly what i discussed with my Bro lately. Would be a good way to make the waiting for SCV more "comfortable".
 
ya cause if they haven't even started im not guna play sc4 for another 3 years, maybe we could ask them to try a couple ideas we want for 5 in it like Soul charge comeing back it'd be like a beta somewhat.

Yeah, something like a Beta ind 1-2 years would be fucking awesome!

I don´t understand why bemu-developers didn´t take a similar approach on that like shooter-developers do.

´Cause without a beta or arcade versions in this case, i doubt that a future SC game will ever be "fairly balanced".

FANS OF THE MAXIMUM Soi Soul Calibur series and give my opinióm regarding improvements SoulCalibur SCV-5

1) SC3 story mode and even longer, was very good to choose the desired route and the story told during each confrontation more cinematic

2) A balance between all the characters I recognize that in SC4 improved immensely but from my point of view the characters as Harada san talim, seung-mina, nithmare and rock are low compared with siegfried amy, ivy and Setsuko are more and greater dynamic range compared to other

3) Arcade at the veterans we love ultra dumb thing that is somewhat difficult to loose at least in SC4 would love a way to win so difficult that we have to measure 100% of attacks. and not be exposed ...

4) Edge master modes survival and SC2 were a delight he had long entertained when playing alone would not be bad to return more to the tower of souls also a cpu vs cpu display similar character to that of two team battle SC3 vs 2 pity you could not play with a friend this way also a training mode + a few extras such as shelves olcadan SC3 taught more than all the new players, the gloves would be great, choice of weapons when selecting character like SC3

5) But characters would be too good algol danpierre best original super nice and very dynamic as new but would be great

6) An advanced, more extensive command list for the characters there are many who become too repetitive

7) charge or charger Soul Power Soul Calibur 1,2,3 also the soul gauge and at least two or three critical finis for the spectacular character to not be so repetitive

8) Mode museum's entire collection of Souledge-blade SC, 1,2,3,4 + 5 would be a spectacular library having so many memories of previous deliveries

9) Scenarios in SC4 there are very few, we would see each character with their own exclusive SC3 stage as a spectacular Valentine's mansion in SC3 woao visual that would be super again

10) include the tekken story to tkk6 tkk a good thing in SC5 would tell of SoulBlade to intro SoulCalibur 5 and not so poor that is as spectacular as that of 1.2 and 3 Soulcalibur Soulblade

11) Best Online

12) Stores to buy SC3 + DLC as a graphics engine would be higher than SC4 spectacularly good to see more graphics put some breast eye Amy, Talim and seung-mina a little more to be ..

13) This is something I do not know if it is within reach but the English and Japanese are enjoying more of this great game because the characters speak their language perfectly, for Latin America would like to see the entire cast of Soulcalibur speaking in Spanish, is not indispensable but not impossible.

14) preferably as a guest character to your liking Harada fails in such cases, the same as tekken as guests would be a luxury and without need of so many contracts zafina or bob would be good or not invite ^___^ anosotros nobody nobody do not like outsiders here ..

15) Rajada clothes sabgre scars something that will look more realistic and innovative SC M-rated ...

16) WE WANT A LUCK TRAILER SC5 MORE THAN IN THE SEA OF E3 2012 ANDA O HARADA 2011 Saint ... YES YES YES YES Harada good to finally remember that many true fans of this opportunity to implore you an SC5 please do not fail us that we do not fail you friend ...

Brazilian Community are very excited with the idea of Soul Calibur 5.

I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE. Makes 100% sense to me :)

Thread can be closed now i guess.
 
Scrap the Tower and bring back Edge Master Mode, find another approach to customization (don't tie the stats to the gear cause then you're forced to look a certain way if you want decent stats) and add in some CAS specific styles (cause honestly, you were just using the same damn people with a different skin), totally revamp the Story mode cause it was pathetic in SCIV (5 matches, no real story to go with them, bring back the QTEs to alter the story), take away Critical Finishes (they're hardly ever used), bring back Survival, Team Battle, Exhibition, no Guest Characters, etc..
 
i honestly don't give a shit about the story or different modes cause in the end we are all just guna play versus
 
Epic.

Here's hoping they take SC back to its roots, SC1/2 style. Just focus on the core gameplay, frames, 8WR, and balance. No more fluff please Namco. No more armor / critical finishes / fireballs. There's no need. Really. Really no need.

and since we're on the topic: guard crush > armor break.
