Namco's newly released screens of free-to-play, single-player entry SoulCalibur: Lost Swords
are more revealing than they first seem. According to Siliconera
, what we're looking at is a support system that lets you temporarily swap in a friend's character for your own.
Namco Bandai hasn't released any concrete details on what modes feature in Lost Swords
, but we do know the game's running on the "next iteration"
of the SoulCalibur 5
engine. As Producer Masaaki Hashino told us in September, "The game system itself is quite different, it's been more streamlined and simplified so that people can more easily perform flashy, over-the-top maneuvers,"
Soulcalibur: Lost Swords
is due to hit the PlayStation Network this winter.
