Namco Bandai announces SoulCalibur: Lost Swords to launch in spring
Namco Bandai today has announced that the upcoming free-to-play SoulCalibur title, Lost Swords, will be arriving exclusively on Sony’s PlayStation 3 this spring.
While it’s true that this isn’t very specific, it is a bit better than the previous launch date they had given, which was just “2014”. That said, the game, despite not being released yet, has already drawn quite a bit of criticism from fans.
The reason for this criticism is simple. The game is going to be a single-player only title, and it is fully expected to implement a “play-time token” system. What this means, if the expectations are correct, is that you will pay real money to play a certain number of matches in the game.
That said, some fans we spoke to wouldn’t have minded that so much, but they dislike the fact that it will be single-player only, as they would prefer to be able to fight their friends rather than just the computer.
What are your thoughts on the expected system and single-player only mode?
