The soul of Bandai Namco and developers of SoulCalibur 6, Project Soul, burns for feedback in the hopes of getting everything right for the upcoming return of the weapons based fighter. According to a user on the popular fighting game forum, 8WAYRUN, Bandai Namco is looking to cut through the vocal minority to figure out what’s important for the fans.
According to the 8WAYRUN user Vergeben, who has somehow received insider information about SoulCalibur 6, stressed that Project Soul is trying to tune the game to meet the demands of the ‘real’ fans of the series. The team has chosen some select communities and streamers to watch in the hopes of getting a better idea of what the community wants.
Feedback from places like the 8WAYRUN forums, Youtubers, as well as Reddit have already impacted the direction of the game according to the leaker, who also cites that negative reactions to rumors about Zasalamel being a DLC character pushed the developers to make him a part of the base roster.
According to the user, the team also wished they had taken fighting styles from For Honor. “They actually cited the game For Honor as inspiration for this, as well as a couple people as part of the battle team getting into American Medieval Sword Fighting via Youtube channels dedicated to it,” the user stated.
“They said they don’t think it means they specifically watch things from that channel, but was at least given as an idea as to what they meant. But I guess it could’ve meant that one. I found that interesting regardless.”
As usual, take this report with a grain of salt but if true, this is a rather interesting way that Project Soul have taken to develop the game, one that will most likely result into a far better game. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for our continued coverage on SoulCalibur VI.
