Delivering new gameplay modes, characters and enhanced features with unprecedented 3D modeling and animation, Soulcalibur IV will be the definitive fighting game experience.
Developed by Project Soul, the legendary team behind Soul Blade and Soulcalibur I-III, Soulcalibur IV will re-introduce classic warriors from the series as well as introduce new characters that will bring new conflict and intrigue. Fully realizing the processing power of the PS3 and Xbox 360, Soulcalibur IV promises to propel the fighting genre into the next-gen era. With visually realistic environments, interactive stages, enhanced AI, and a new battle system, Soulcalibur IV will be at the top of everyone’s wish list.
“We are honored to be debuting Lord Vader’s Secret Apprentice in Soulcalibur IV,” said Todd Thorson, Director of Marketing and Public Relations, NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “The Secret Apprentice adds to the depth and excitement the Soulcalibur franchise is known to deliver; proving to be another formidable opponent in the quest to obtain the mighty Soul swords.”
“The Secret Apprentice is a great fit for Soulcalibur, a franchise known for its over-the-top characters and frenzied fighting action,” said Haden Blackman, project lead for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed at LucasArts. “We’re extremely proud to give fighting fans a sneak peek at one of the most intriguing new Star Wars videogame characters in a long time.”
The unrelenting pursuit of two legendary swords continues when Soulcalibur IV is released on PS3 and X360, July 29, 2008.
A Limited Edition will include the game, art book, t-shirt, tournament bracket and, unidentified, exclusive downloadable content, all wrapped in a tin box.
