Details on next Soul Calibur title coming soon

The soul still burns, you’re just going to have to be patient. According to Namco Bandai’s Daishi Odashima — part of the Soul Calibur-centric Project SOUL team — we may hear some news in just a few weeks.

“Hopefully, I will be able to announce something mid-May,” he says on his Twitter.

Unless Project SOUL is working on a new Pac-Man title, the safe bet’s on details of new Soul Calibur, possibly the fifth title in the main series. With the rising mainstream popularity of fighters again (thanks to Street Fighter IV and more recently, Mortal Kombat), the time is ripe for Namco Bandai to make a splash. Let’s hope it delivers.
