Namco Bandai Trademarks Soul Calibur: Lost Swords

Soul Calibur V Ivy SS 1

After the somewhat disappointing release of Soul Calibur V, Namco seems to be trying to recoup their losses by releasing a new game in the franchise even sooner than the last gap between IV and V. Namco has trademarked “Soul Calibur: Lost Swords” in the Americas. Here is the source.

We previously reported on Namco Bandai filing a trademark for Lost Swords, but now we know what franchise it’s attached to because most publishers only do franchises these days.

With San Diego Comic Con coming this weekend, you can imagine Namco is going to show the game off then, considering it’s a pretty big trade show here in the Americas. So, how do you guys feel about a new Soul Calibur game? Were you burned by the previous one or are you starving for more?
