Soul Calibur IV is the fifth game in Namco Bandai's long running Soul fighting game series. Namco Bandai has announced that Soul Calibur IV will be released in 2008 for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 consoles. The game is being developed by Project Soul, the studio behind previous entries in the series. Director Katsutoshi Sasaki has announced that for the first time the series will have competitive online play for both consoles. Additional features will include new modes, new fighters, interactive stages, enhanced AI, and a new battle system.

Namco Bandai has also announced the surprise addition of Darth Vader and Master Yoda from the Star Wars franchise as playable bonus characters. Each fighter will be exclusive to one console, similar to the bonus characters in Soul Calibur II. Darth Vader will appear on the PLAYSTATION 3 and Master Yoda on the Xbox 360. There has been speculation that both characters will not remain exclusive and that each may appear on the other console via additional downloadable content at a later date.

Three other new non-exclusive fighters have also been revealed. First announced is Hilde a German female knight wielding both a short sword and spear and two guest characters who have been designed by famed Japanese manga artists, Scheherazade an elfish fencer designed by Yutaka Izubuchi, and the staff wielding Angol Fear designed by Mine Yoshizaki.

The confirmed returning roster includes fighters Astaroth, Cassandra, Cervantes, Ivy, Kilik, Lizardman, Maxi, Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Raphael, Rock, Seung Mina, Siegfried, Sophitia, Taki, Talim, Tira, Voldo, Xianghua, Yoshimitsu, Yun-seong, and Zasalamel. Additional characters will be announced closer to the game's release.

1 Up Review : A

1 Up - July 24, 2008

So with the classic, new-school, and infinitely customizable character roster at the ready, and with online play fully operational, it's not a stretch to say this might be 2008's best fighting game. Some other hot fighters are on the horizon, but considering how fun Soul Calibur 4 is after a month of nonstop play, I think it'd be hard to top what Namco's accomplished with what is unquestionably their best fighting game to date.

Soul Calibur Dated for US

IGN - April 16, 2008


Submitted by Makidian (64) at 7:52AM PST on April 16, 2008


Namco Bandai has revealed the launch date for the latest in the Soulcalibur series, with the fourth installment due to hit the US on July 29. There's still no news of a European release date, though we can expect it some time before the leaves brown. Soulcalibur IV has taken the somewhat remarkable step of introducing Star War's Yoda and Darth Vader to the mix, and looks to capitalize on online play.

Namco on Soulcalibur IV Install Size

Kotaku - July 1, 2008


Submitted by yamaro (35) at 10:47PM PST on July 1, 2008


The rumors of 6.5GB install size and 2GB save data for PS3 version have been exaggerated, says the publisher. "Those numbers are not accurate and are significantly overblown," a Namco Bandai rep told Kotaku. Reps did not respond to requests for exact installation sizes, nor did they comment on the hard drive requirements for the Xbox 360 version.

IGN Hands-on

At a press event held during this week's CES, Namco Bandai showcased a playable version of Soul Calibur IV, and though the build on display didn't feature the recently announced Star Wars characters, it included some of the staple characters of the series and gave us a solid taste of what's to come.
