In preparation for the release of the much awaited Soulcalibur VI, Bandai Namco has released the first part in a new documentary series called ‘Souls and Swords: The Rise of Soulcalibur’.

The new SoulCalibur documentary series details the emergence of the Soulcalibur series. Those who are not familiar with the background and the story of Soulcalibur should definitely watch it as it gives you an idea on what the story is all about.

With over 20 years of history stemming from the arcades, moving onto consoles, and now days away from launching on the most powerful generation of gaming hardware in video game history, SOULCALIBUR has always presented ground breaking weapons-based gameplay that has captured the souls of gamers. With SOULCALIBUR VI launching on October 19th, we wanted to take a moment to look back at the origins of the franchise, only by knowing our history, can we hope to achieve a better future.
