    But of course, it wouldn’t make sense to announce a free-to-play game just to keep it Japan.

  • Bob Obb

    I just hope there’s more than 8 characters

  • Deusxmachina

    Soul Calibur
    Almost all fighting games are going F2P. I wonder if they will actually be successful.

    • ExTrooperBrenTurner

      Tekken Revolution is another Bandai Namco free-to-play game, and it is very successful, according to Harada-san.

    • Cliffon

      If they keep pumping out F2P games like this it’s obvious they makes profits from it

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    Ehh….looks like I won’t really be playing fighting games anymore outside the Arc Sys ones (and other exceptions), since story is becoming non-existent…

    • ExTrooperBrenTurner

      Then you will enjoy Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, I believe.

      • CirnoTheStrongest

        That would be Arc Sys >.>

        • ExTrooperBrenTurner

          Yes, huh… I’m not sure I understand. Guilty Gear has always been developed by Arc System Works.

          • CirnoTheStrongest

            I was just pointing out how you were pointing out the obvious. Since I said outside of Arc Sys’ stuff, it looks like fighting games are going to be a no-go for me now.

    Bring back Taki and setsuka or GTFO.

    Hope it’s not as terrible as Tekken Revolution. :P

    • Elvick

      It’s not terrible…

  • Syltique

    I’m not excited about this at all. But it is kind of funny that I literally learned how to play the first Soul Calibur by paying $0.50 for each loss at the arcades. Played it for about a year doing that.

    Funny how much things have changed.

  • SuperLuigi

    Yun-seong please????? I miss playing as him.

  • captainhowdy

    Zasalamel please. With Setsuka :).

  • JoJo_649

    I wonder if they will add a a guest character, with that F2P model and all.

  • Budgiecat
  • artemisthemp

    I really hope they will tell, how Soul Calibur: Lost Sword F2P model will work ad TGS
