The Next Soulcalibur Is Already Under Development

Namco producer Katsuhiro Harada and the new Soulcalibur director Daishi Odashima confirmed yesterday that the latest offering in the venerable fighting series is under development.

That image accompanied a tweet from Odashima saying "SC is back!" on Christmas Eve; Harada followed late last night with "Soul Calibur is back!!" We'll take that as confirmation.

No other details for what this is or means, but this sounds like a full sequel, given that the last console version in the Soulcalibur series was SC IV from 2008. The PSP-only Broken Destiny followed in August 2009.
