Soul Calibur IV confirmed

By Namco Bandai producer.

Daisuke Uchiyama, chief producer at Namco Bandai and a man best known for is work on the Dragon Ball Z games, has confirmed that a fourth instalment in the Soul Calibur series is on the way.

That's according to GameDaily.com, who got the chance to sit down with Uchiyama for a chat.

Apparently he said he'd love to see members of the Tekken or Soul Calibur development teams working on a DBZ game - but they're a bit busy at the moment, what with having to produce Tekken 6 and Soul Calibur IV.

Tekken 6, of course, was announced aaages ago. It's coming to PS3, and word is it'll make use of Sony's new motion-sensing controller.

But this is the first official word of Soul Calibur IV - although it's hardly a great surprise to learn that such a successful series is getting another instalment.

Uchiyama didn't reveal any details of the game; he wouldn't even say which platforms it's in development for, in fact. Next-gen seems more than likely, but as for which consoles... We'll just have to wait and see.
