Namco Bandai, wait that's not right; Bandai Namco has announced tha... -- actually, the name change doesn't take affect until April so I suppose Namco Bandai is still correct. Actually, maybe it's not becau... -- I CAN'T DEAL WITH THIS! Alright, we're doing this my way.
Bamco Nandai has announced that SoulCalibur: Lost Swords, the company's upcoming free-to-play title, will be launching exclusively on the PlayStation 3 sometime this spring. I mean, it's not very specific but it's a bit more than the "2014" launch date they had given before, so they're getting there.
Camno Danbai's Lost Swords has already drawn criticism from fans of the franchise for being a single-player only title that's expected to implement a sort of "play-time token" system where players pay real money in order to play a certain amount of matches in the game (similar to that of Tekken: Revolution).
