Soulcalibur 20th Anniversary!

  • So, Project Soul have finally decided to acknowledge that the Soul series is 20 years old!

    They have made a new logo to go along with the 20th anniversary and have offically stated:
    "To celebrate Soulcalibur 20th Anniversary, we invite you to discover (again) our unique universe! Character focus, trivia, fan arts, quiz and so many surprises. Be ready, Legends are coming!"
    Soul series 20Ann


    "So many surprises" is anyone else excited? They're finally taking notice of the series again, and I'm eager to know what these surprises are! They're releasing special character pictures that contain information and trivia about that specfic character! We will update the Wiki with what is said on these official pictures! The first character they have released information about is Taki.
    Taki20Ann


    Is anyone else excited? We have many surprises to come acording to Project Soul, let's hope one of the surprises is Soulcalibur VI!

    The surprises could be anything, a new game, a remaster/remake of an old game, a port maybe? Who knows, but I would take any one of those! I'll keep you all updated with new information as it comes out!

    The Legend will never die!

    • Finally. It looks like a new game is around the corner. It was a long wait, but it seems like we've finally reached the light at the end of the tunnel.

    • It's probably too early to judge right now seems that only one information/trivia image has been released. However, why do you think they have given Taki's fighting style a different name? Now in my opinion it could mean a few things:

      1. After her journey looking for Toki she learnt a new style or learnt an altered version of her original, hinting towards Soulcalibur VI
      2. Project Soul are planning on rebooting the series or retconning the story (kind of like Mortal Kombat 2011) and that will be the name of Taki's style
      3. It's simply a new name for her style in the next game (similar situation to point 1)
      4. It doesn't mean anything at all, they just felt like changing it

      Obviously, like I said it's too early to judge as we haven't seen any other information/trivia picture but when more are released, if the fighting styles have been re-named then I'm guessing it's something to do with what they are planning for the next installment. Let me know what you think!

    • Isn't it the same but with "Seong" in front of it? I find it odd because I don't believe that word exists in Japan.

    • Well her regular fighting style is called Musō-Battō-ryū while the one in that photo is Seong Musoh-Battoh-Ryu so it's a difference in spelling and obviously the Seong part. So that further hints towards her learning an altered version of her own style, maybe she comes across someone who relates to the Seong family and learns some stuff from them? I guess we will find out in the next installment.

      I could just be reading into this too much though, maybe it's a mistranslation but I'm sure the Facebook is ran by Hoshino so he would have been the one to post the picture, so unless it's stated to be different in the next installment we'll just keep it.

    • They're doing a popularity tournament now.

      It's Siegfried vs. Z.W.E.I, Mitsurugi vs. Raphael, Taki vs. Natsu, Hilde vs. Dampierre. This is quite one-sided apart from the second match (and we still know Mitsu is going to win there). What exactly is the point of this when we already know who the popularity characters are from last years' poll?

    • I know I saw that they were doing that. It's just to see who the "Ultimate Legend" is! I don't think it actually means anything though, just some fun activites for the 20th Anniversary! You're right though, it is very one-sided. Still, it's just a bit of fun :)

    • It's good to hear about this series again. All my game series and anime are either ending or over and it'd be nice to see a new game for this series. I've only been playing since 2009, but I love these games and I've played and own all of them including Soul Calibur Legends and Broken Destiny.

    • Everyone, don't forget tomorrow is Comic Con and there will be discussions going on about the Soul series and the 20th Anniversary! Make sure to keep a look out on the internet for any announcements! A new game could be announced, maybe a remaster of an old game (Soulcalibur III?) Who knows? Just be sure to keep a look out!

    • Hopefully it would be Soul Calibur 6 and they could add Sakura the daughter of Setsuka, Ai the sister of Natsu, Matsumoto the nephew of Mitsurugi and who knows maybe Siegfried, Nightmare, Cervantes, Raphael and Voldo would surely return!

    • Thats what I think they could appear in Soul Calibur 6

    • Does this mean.... We'll have to go through the whole Nightmare IS Sigfried Phase again? Also will we get character custimization? 

      Firefox spell check isn't working in this box strange.

    • Not that it means much, but Hoshino started posting tweets again after five months. The long time spent in silence made me wonder what was going on. I'm hoping we get that reveal we've been waiting for since 2013.

    • What do you guys think the tournament is alluding to? I heard someone suggest that these characters could be in SCVI, and they're doing this as a means to secretly decide which characters are more anticipated. That would unfortunately mean that Natsu is returning, but at least it would also mean that Taki is coming back. I'm not for sure though.

      I do find it interesting that all of the characters in the tournament were in SCV, with Taki being the lone exception. That being said, Natsu was the only character on there who was introduced in that game. What do you think the significance of this is? Assuming there is any besides to build hype.

    • Im not very hopeful. This isnt the first character popularity contest the facebook page has conducted, and my hopes for that one hour supposedly dedicated to Soul Calibur back in Namco's comic con panel on the 22nd were quickly dragged through the mud when it ended up being nothing but Tekken talk.

      At this point, with the track record every game after II has had, I'm just wondering if Namco is ashamed of and despises the Souls series.

    • Unlikely. If they were, they wouldn't be using the IP at all.

    • I really hope they surprise us with Soul Calibur VI at TGS when the NEO is confirmed but I also hope it also releases for both the XBOX One and PC too so that more gamers can enjoy the game as exlcusives only hurt sales such as SF5 is proof of it being hurt not being on the XBOX.  I just want to have it on the PC along with all versions of Soul Calibur on Steam or the XBOX Marketplace in Windows 10....  Even a remake of Soul Caliber or II would be epic using modern graphics and throwing in an upated CAS would make those remakes epic as you wouldn't have to mess with anything else from those games.  Maybe add more stages and even story segments to redeem the franchise I love so much.  Or at least a SCV ultra with all characters old and new and just say a wormhole opened up and it's yada yada yada, just bring back the fighters people actually miss.


      SCV was actually really solid in terms of gameplay mechanics and the great CAS mode.  Too bad the 2011 Tohoku Tsunami messed up the development and thus was the terrible story mode and lack of many other mods we had with SCV.  I would have gladly waited another year for them to have polished it up along with finishing the envisioned story mode.  They should have at least released an Ultra version with the complete story they had orginially envisioned with.  I also hate the fact that Lost Swords closed down without being able to keep your purchased equipment for offline play/collection purposes or at least made into DLC for SCV since it was using the same egine and would have been 100% capabtale.  I also miss updated Seong Mi-Na and Casandra already :(   The only way I can even look at the updated Seong Mi-Na and Cassanda was modding both of them into my JTAG rip of my legit collectors edition SCV.
