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.
