More sexy knockouts and barefoot bikini babes, hopefully!
Just this past holiday weekend, Namco-Bandai confirmed the development of a new Soul Calibur game. Driven by fan petitions online, the possibility of the classic fighting game series continuing was unsure until now. Via Twitter, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada introduced newly-appointed Soul Calibur development head Daishi Odashima, who will have the final say on how the next SC game will turn out. This is great news- the last Soul Calibur, SoulCalibur IV, is easily one of the hottest barefoot babe games you can get on consoles, with sexy character models, a roster of hot fighting babes and barefoot customization available in the Character Creation feature.
I'm hoping that at the very least, the next SC will improve the graphics even more, at the very least giving the characters' feet more attention to detail- that was one of the weak points of SCIV- while not bad by any measure, the babes' feet were clearly lacking in polygon counts and life-like textures. If SCIV's feet were as awesome as Tekken 6's, SCIV would have appealed to foot fans so much more. Here's to hot babes with hotter feet in Soul Calibur V! No release date yet- I'd say to expect this out in late 2011 or early to mid 2012.
