During The Game Awards, Bandai Namco surprised audiences with a special announcement. Soulcalibur V didn't receive the same acclaim as earlier games in the seires, and many fans anxious about the future of the franchise.
The most recent entry in the mainline series, Soulcalibur 5, was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.
We see classic Soul Calibur 3D weapon-based fighting, with side-stepping, blocking and parrying.
2017 was a solid year for fighting games, with titles like Injustice 2 and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite coming out, but it seems like next year will be even better. Only time will tell.

When we made a decision to create a new map, we focused on creating an environment that is very different from Erangel. It contains some denser urban areas, including a massive city far larger than anything the game has offered thus far.
It's been almost five years since the last time we stepped into the arena, brandished our shields and our swords, and let our souls burn in a heated battle.
Soulcalibur 6 is finally happening. Not that we're complaining.
Nonetheless, hopefully SoulCalibur 6 isn't hamstrung by season passes, an online only component, and barebones single-player content that we've seen in other fighting games this generation like Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom.
