Soulcalibur: Lost Swords Is Namco Bandai's Next Free To Play Game
Posted by Damien McFerran
Following in the footsteps of Tekken Revolution and Ridge Racer Driftopia
Namco Bandai is turning Soulcalibur into a free to play game, following its experiment with Tekken Revolution. Soulcalibur: Lost Swords is headed to the PS3 later in the year, according to Japanese magazine Famitsu.
The company is also working on Ridge Racer Driftopia, which adopts a similar mechanic.
There's little else to report on Soulcalibur: Lost Swords aside from the name and the fact that it's free to play, with no screens or videos available at present.
The weapons-based fighting series has been through five major iterations so far, not including PSP and Wii spin-offs. Soulcalibur V sold 1.56 million copies worldwide, which was less than its immediate predecessor.
