SoulCalibur VI Might be the Last Game in the SoulCalibur Franchise if It’s Not Successful
PlayStation 4™ & Xbox One™ – US, EU, AU, JAPAN & ASIA
The SoulCalibur franchise has been dominant for a very long time. After six years since SoulCalibur V, SoulCalibur VI is now approaching. So, SoulCalibur fans out there, you better buy this game or else. SoulCalibur VI might be the last game of the franchise if this is not successful. The game franchise depends on the success of this upcoming fighting game.
Last Gamescom 2018, Dualshockers talked with the SoulCalibur VI‘s producer Motohiro Okubo. They asked him if SoulCalibur VI could be the last game in the series if it didn’t perform well in terms of sales.
Yeah, that’s right. We don’t want to blackmail the users by saying that it could be the last one, but as it is, yes.
According to Okubo, it’s hard to convince the higher-ups at Bandai Namco to reproduce another sequel. It seems there’s only a little faith in the franchise. However, the development team has decided with what they wanted to do since they have nothing to lose.
Since the SoulCalibur brand is facing a crisis, we have nothing to lose, so we just decided to do what we want to do.
He also pointed out the design of the sexy characters in the SoulCalibur roster.
However, it’s not like we’re trying to make the characters sexy. When we decide on the costumes, we always think about how best they can represent the characters. Sometimes there may be less fabric and as a result, the character may be sexier, but we’re not trying to make the game focused on sexy characters.
So, what do you think folks? Should we support this upcoming SoulCalibur game or just see it fade from our memory?
