According to Gamesradar, Namco has announced that the original Soul Calibur is coming “soon” to iOS devices. Originally released in the arcade in 1998 and ported to Dreamcast the following year, Soul Calibur is a weapons-based fighting game that met with very favorable reviews at the time of its launch. The series has continued to the present day, with the fifth iteration releasing for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 early next year.

Namco hasn’t released any screenshots or video of the iOS version, but you can get an idea of what to expect from the Dreamcast screenshot above. Whether the iOS version will be as well executed as King of Fighters-i or Street Fighter IV Volt remains to be seen. We’ll keep you posted on Soul Calibur when new information is made available.
