More Namco-Bandai Twitter Teasing to Come…

It seems that while the past month or so has been pretty thin when it comes to any updates to upcoming fighters from Namco-Bandai, that may change in the very near future. SD-Tekken just dropped some hints that fans should keep their eyes peeled on Twitter (on new Namco-Bandai community manager FilthieRich and of course, Tekken main man Katsuhiro Harada) for some updates. No word yet exactly on what games, but heck- there are only two games to wait for updates for- Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and a possible new Soul Calibur (Tekken X SF is slated to come much later, so I don’t think they want much focus on that right now).

Latest word I’ve gathered from Twitterati is that development on TTT2 is going along well, and that character models are looking a lot improved from before. Well, hopefully we’ll see a lot more info, screens or perhaps even a video or so as a holiday gift from NB. I’ll keep my eyes peeled then.

Want Soulcalibur V? Then Join the Petition!

Whether Ivy will jiggle back into battle may rely on YOU, the gamer.

UPDATE: Harada-san recently posted a tweet saying, “Ok everyone I’ll share your opinion with TK & SC project Team. Thank You!!” Perhaps this means that he’s seen the numbers and is now convinced a lot of fans want a new SoulCalibur? We’ll just have to wait and see.

All this time I’ve been operating on the assumption that Soulcalibur V is already in development. Perhaps it is, or perhaps it isn’t… but apparently we the gaming public may have a say if we’re going to see the Tales of Souls and Swords continue. Katsuhiro Harada, Namco-Bandai’s main man for the Tekken and Soul Calibur games, is apparently looking to see signatures from souls wanting to see more of the Calibur Crew in action. Once he sees enough people giving their vote for, he’ll supposedly relay the message to the dev teams to get to work. If you are a fighting fan like me, then it’s a no-brainer. We. Want. Soulcalibur V. Now.

To aid in this quest, click here to go to the Petition to Namco for Soulcalibur 5 Facebook Page and add your name to the many who have already professed their desire for more blade-wielding carnage on consoles.

That said, I scarcely think that this means that there isn’t any SCIV sequel in the works at the very least- surely they haven’t shut down Project Soul in the meantime. But I think that a large enough number of gamers who voice their desire for a new SC game will hasten the coming of the next sword-wielding sequel. In any case, click on the link, go to the Facebook Petition Page and LIKE it. The world needs another Soulcalibur game in the near future!
