The success of a machine is the sum of many factors. One of them is his ability to push the technique even further, in order to constantly impress us. As developers seize the capabilities of the hardware and double their tricks, new performances are made possible. Soul Calibur was one of those milestone games, except that it remained so throughout the life of the Dreamcast. So beautiful, so smooth, so fluid, so well animated. The Namco teams were able to offer us a production at the technical pinnacle of this console, only a month and a half after its release in our region. And yet, you will notice while browsing the pages of this number 36 of your mook Pix'n Lovethat the developers ran out of time to make this port!


It is undoubtedly this shock which allowed this young license, heiress of Soul Edge , to remain present during the 2000s, a decade during which fighting games became less popular. Where the Power Stone , Rival Schools , Marvel vs. Capcom and Fighting Vipers bowed out. Even the great Street Fighter would have suffered the same fate if Yoshinori Ono and his companions had not fought internally to offer us the fourth episode. If the great creative ferment of versus fighting experienced a respite at the dawn of this millennium, Soul Caliburhas been able to stay upright, and join the ranks of essential licenses like The King of Fighters or Tekken , where so many others have fallen in the field of honor.


In recent years, the fight genre seems to have experienced a similar turn. Media exposure has returned thanks to e -sport , but the fight is tough and some series are struggling to exist commercially. The Legend will never die . That's all we want for Soul Calibur .
