Japan Expo: Soul Calibur IV

Japan Expo: Soul Calibur IV

While visiting Japan Expo in Paris, we grabbed some gameplay of Soul Calibur IV. The demo featured three characters and four environments. The video lasts four minutes and showcases all these elements, with a little grab sequence at the end.

ugh.. I counted exactly one block and two tries for guard impact throughout the whole video.. blocking is a vital skill in SC, use it.

Hmm sad to see so many videos not in 720p lately :(

Think I will be getting this for PS3.

YAY 1st
I don't think we need that type of thing here.. Nobody cares if you were the first one to post a message, especially if it's JUST to say you were the first. What's the point?

And I have to say, Hilde's alternate costume is very beautiful. She has a great weapon combination too, I'm looking forward to playing as her.

Why No sound in the videos?
Commented on 2008-07-07 22:33:40
I literally show up here every day hoping for more SC4 stuff. Thanks.

Wow the character models look stunning.. probably the best looking this generation. The Japanese developers really can their characters, with natural hair, skin and so on :P

Awesome game!

Ever tried filming anything at a public show? Unless you like to hear the crowd and not the game, no sound it is.

We are doing what we can. Off-screen footage in 720p is a waste of bandwidth most of the time.

Blim, how did you like it?

Looks great the Star Wars level looks realy good even if the characters don't suit it
Commented on 2008-07-08 00:34:37
Thank god there were decent-good players playing. I hate when they show fighting games with absolutely terrible players playing.
Commented on 2008-07-08 04:55:47
I. Can't. Wait. Namco, don't leave us hanging. Let's see the demo online!

Cool! Another anime character!

I've heard that the guest characters (sans Light Sabers) are glorified palette swaps.

I'm actually pretty pleased to hear that.

They grabbed it, meaning probably on the fly so stop whining about no sound and bloody 720p. Be grateful you have this in the first place or maybe you should of got off ya lazy backsides and flew over to Japan ya'selves.

I'm not a very big fan of these anime guys (or girls actually..) but I am glad to see they don't even appear on the character select screen, they simply go under the same menu as your own created characters, much in the same way guys like Assassin and Luna, etc did in SCIII.

When it looked like they would all be appearing as standard characters, ala Necrid, it was a little worrying. Can't quite work out what kind of weapon style she's using though, is it just Nightmare's?

I think you mean Paris.

Yeah Japan in Paris ;D

I still don't know what version to get, I want to get the PS3 version, but I am afraid that online play will be laggy like Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection.
Commented on 2008-07-09 21:42:54
Game looks great.
As for these additional characters, we obviously have some to appeal to both the west and east.
We've got the Star Wars characters to help shift the game in the west and then the characters designed by some of the more famous manga-ka to help shift the game in the east.
I'll be grabbing the 360 version myself and can't wait.
Commented on 2008-07-09 22:43:59
Awesome game! There isn't too much new fighting games nowdays.
BTW Yoda sucks, Vader rulez!

Can't wait to bust out my skills with Raphael. Prepare to see some crazy evade techniques followed by some shankings.

  • crookedmind
    crookedmind Question for you guys, since most of you are console-centric. Is the playstation network cross compatible with their older consoles? For instance, do ps3 games also released for ps4 have the ability.. (10 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker

    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (2 Hours ago)
