Namco Bandai Games has trademarked “Soul Calibur: Lost Swords” on July 11th, 2013, hinting at the subtitle for Soul Calibur 6… let’s hope!
The trademark is described as:
“Entertainment, namely, providing a computer game that may be accessed network-wide by network users via mobile phones and computers; providing computer games via network between communications networks and computers.
SOULCALIBUR LOST SWORDS (Standard Characters).
The literal elements of the mark consist of SOULCALIBUR LOST SWORDS.
The mark consists of standard characters, without claim to any particular font, style, size, or color.”
Aside from the Soul Calibur 2 HD Online remake, obviously a new Soul Calibur game is in development at Namco Bandai. With Soul Calibur 5 only being released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it’s possible for a future fighting game in the series to go cross-generation on Xbox 360 & Xbox One as well as PS3 & PS4.
