Soul Calibur III - Arcade Edition

Tira VS Cassandra Mitsurugi VS Taki
Out of the ring! Who got the biggest?

4 years after the last episode, here's Soul Calibur III in the arcades, at last! Released on console last year, this game introduced brand new characters such as Setsuka, a Japanese girl in traditional outfit who hides a blade in her umbrella, a malefic magus wielding a scythe named Zasalamel and Tira, a female acrobat handling with dexterity an hoop shaped blade. Due to players' request, the development of an arcade version started. And here's the result: 27 characters including 3 totally new ones, a tuned gameplay and more balanced fighters. Compared to Soul Calibur II, it will be even more beautiful and faster! Players' characters can be saved thanks to a barcode system. Powered by System 256 (Tekken 5), we can hope for better graphics than the home version.

- May 2007: Released in Japan in March 2006 and in the USA 4 months later, Soul Calibur III was never officially distributed in Europe. Namco Europe chose to avoid putting a possible competitor to Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection on the market and privileged Super Dragon Ball Z instead. Soul Calibur III cabinets we found in our arcades host american or japanese versions.
