“Transcending history and the world, a tale of souls and swords, eternally retold.”
One of our whirlwind tour type shows as we take on Namco’s legendary swords, staffs and shields fighting franchise, SoulCalibur (briefly Soul Edge, aka Soul Blade). Leon, Karl and Michiel’s souls still burn as they relive the giddy days of the PS1 original and its astonishing Dreamcast follow-up, before SoulCaliburs II, III, IV and V each brought new guest characters, gameplay elements, glitches, technical issues and even memory-card-threatening bugs. Your razor-sharp community correspondence and Three Word Reviews also ring out.
Music used in this issue:
1: Edge of Soul by Benten Maru
2: Under the Star of Destiny by Junichi Nakatsuru, Yoshihito Yano, Asuka Sakai, Rio Hamamoto, Ryuichi Takada, Junichi Takagi
