Soul Calibur VI will be released for PC, PS4, Xbox One in 2018

Soul Calibur, Bandai Namco’s other fighting franchise, will prove that the soul still burns with a new entry in 2018. Soul Calibur VI was announced during last night’s Game Awards, and it’ll be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime next year.

In the meantime, we’ll have to make do with an epic Announcement Trailer starring Mitsurugi and Sophitia:

The Soul Calibur franchise has been the premier 3D weapon-based fighting series since the original Soul Blade released in arcades in 1995. Soul Calibur VI retains the series’ signature 8-Way Run movement system, providing super smooth 3D movement, while integrating new gameplay systems such as the exciting Reversal Edge. Reversal Edge enables characters to clash against each other and follow-up with powerful counterattacks based on their opponent’s actions. Challenge the computer AI, compete against friends, or challenge fighters from around the world in high-speed dynamic battles with jaw-dropping visual effects.

Taking place in the 16th century, revisit the events of the original Soul Calibur to uncover hidden truths with a diverse lineup of new and returning characters with their unique fighting styles including series mainstays: Mitsurugi and Sophitia.

A second trailer for Soul Calibur VI was unveiled as part of this year’s PlayStation Experience. You can find it after the break. (more…)

Atlus will release Dragon’s Crown Pro in North America in Spring 2018

Atlus has announced plans to bring Dragon’s Crown, a bizarre beat ’em up that was originally released for the PS3 and Vita in 2013, to the PS4 in Spring 2018.

The remaster will be known as Dragon’s Crown Pro, and it’ll include PS4 Pro support, a newly recorded orchestral soundtrack, English and Japanese audio options, cross-play and cross-save compatibility with the PS3/Vita version, and the Storyteller Voice Pack DLC:


  • Visuals Fit for an Ancient Dragon – With beautifully refined artwork and 4K resolution support, Vanillaware’s signature art style will come alive as you bludgeon, cleave, shoot, and loot through the dungeons of Hydeland.
  • A Rousing Adventurer’s Soundtrack – A newly recorded soundtrack by fabled composer Hitoshi Sakimoto, supported by a live orchestra, will accompany daring treasure hunters on their search for the Dragon’s Crown.
  • Glorious Presentation – Rejoice because English and Japanese audio options will now be available! Plus, game text will be localized in French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
  • All the Royal Bells and Whistles – If you already own Dragon’s Crown, your saves won’t go to waste. There will be online cross-play and cross-save compatibility with existing PS3 and Vita versions. Oh, and all patches, features, and the Storyteller Voice Pack DLC from the original game will be included!
  • Four Player Frenzy – With the fun local couch co-op and online multiplayer you remember, up to four players can experience countless hours battling together.

As with the original release, Dragon’s Crown Pro features groups of heroes that face dreadful challenges in the labyrinthine dungeons surrounding the medieval fantasy kingdom of Hydeland. As they explore deeper into the dungeons, non-player characters such as Samuel the Adventurer’s Guild leader and Lucain, the wizard come in to play with quests and tasks to complete. Use six adventurers (Fighter, Dwarf, Amazon, Wizard, Elf, and Sorceress) and their unique abilities to unravel the story behind the ultimate treasure, the Dragon’s Crown.

We were pretty big fans of Dragon’s Crown the first time around, and if you’re interested in trying out Dragon’s Crown Pro this weekend, it’ll be playable at Sony’s PlayStation Experience, which will be held on December 9th and 10th in Anaheim.
