It looks like fans of the beloved Soulcalibur franchise may soon experience their classic games in HD. Recently, rumours have been circulating that Namco Bandai — the developers behind the acclaimed fighting game series — are working on remastered versions of their titles. If this news is accurate, it will mark a major win for long-time soulcalibur fans around the globe.
Soulcalibur has been entertaining gamers since its original release on the Sega Dreamcast back in 1998. It quickly developed a dedicated following due to its unique weapon-based combat system and fully three-dimensional arenas. Since then, Namco Bandai has built upon the success of the initial title by releasing several sequels including Soulcalibur II, III, IV and V.
Each successive game refined and improved upon its predecessors by introducing new characters, weapons and gameplay elements. As a result of these improvements, Soulcalibur rose to become one of gaming’s most beloved franchises.
Recent speculation suggests that Namco Bandai are readying remastered versions of all five Soulcalibur releases. This would ensure fans can once again join Mitsurugi & co as they fight their way through an array of stunningly rendered 3D arenas in 1080P resolution, accompanied by upgraded sound effects and music.
Unfortunately there has been no official confirmation from Namco Bandai regarding this exciting rumour. However many gaming industry insiders believe that a remastering announcement will be made at E3 2020 – giving gamers a chance to experience one of their favourite fighting series in ultra-HD glory.
