Soul Calibur set to hit the App Store this week

Namco Bandai has announced that it will be bringing its weapons based fighting game Soul Calibur to the App Store this week. Soul Calibur was originally launched in arcades back in 1998 and has also been available for the Sega Dreamcast and more recently the Xbox 360.

The iOS port of the classic arcade and Dreamcast fighting game features all 19 fighters and a mode list that includes arcade battle, time attack, survival, extra survival, practice and museum modes. Of these, time attack, survival and extra survival are compatible with Game Center's Leader Boards.

The game should be released on January 19th which is this Thursday. The app will be available as a universal binary so expect beautiful visuals on all platforms. No information on the cost of the app so far but we will let you know as soon as we hear anymore.

Soul Calibur set to hit the App Store this week


I'm looking forward to this. I hope they port more dreamcast games to iOS like Crazy Taxi.

I remember playing this in arcades all the time, then my friends dream cast. This should be an awesome game on the iPad 2.

Without a handheld controller it's useless - fighting games is the one genre that is hardest to emulate with onscreen controls.

I completely agree with you Kalus. I have Street Fighter on my iPhone and combos are very tough and virtually impossible.

Really!?! I own street fightet volt, and i cant get enough of it...some really skilled players out there on ios too, pulling ofg really complicated combos... The onscreen controls of sf4 volt is among the best in ios games imo.
You should check out the sf4 volt thread on toucharcade... It has a massive following with a 1000+ pages and growing. No other ios game thread to my knowledge is pulling in such traffic.
