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.
