New Soulcalibur game in the works, says Namco developer

By Hayley Tsukayama

Get excited, fighting-game enthusiasts. Namco's Soulcalibur franchise has a new game in development, according to tweets from its project director, Daishi Odashima. Gawker's gaming site, Kotaku, credits the gaming blog Ripten with the first tweet sighting.

Odashima, who just joined Twitter, caused a stir with his first update, which read, "SC is back! Get ready, fans!" with a link to a picture of the director at his desk with Soulcalibur concept art.

This would be the fifth installment under the Soulcalibur name (yes, it's really spelled that way), not counting spin-off titles. SCIV debuted in 2008 for the Playstation 3 and the XBox 360.

The head of the Tekken development team, Namco's other revered fighting franchise, chimed in with his own tweets after Odashima's announcement, saying that the company had not yet picked a platform or launch date for the new game.
