Bandai Namco Not Working On Soulcalibur VI For Switch, But Might In The Future

With Soulcalibur VI coming out soon, and another Bandai Namco fighter Dragon Ball FighterZ coming to Switch even sooner, Switch fans are wondering whether Soulcalibur will also arrive on the system after launch. Dualshockers got a chance to ask Motohiro Okubo just that question and he didn't quite rule it out.

"At the moment," Okubo told Dualshockers, "there is no development for Switch at all. I understand that the Switch is a very successful hardware, and of course if there is a possibility, then it would be great to do it. At the moment we’re focusing on the October 19th launch, so we don’t even have the time to think about that possibility. After the launch we’ll think about the possibility.”

Before Soulcalibur VI was announced, rumors were swirling about the possibility of the game coming to Switch with possible representation from Fire Emblem characters, echoing the release of Soulcalibur II on the Gamecube with Link from The Legend of Zelda series. Those rumors didn't pan out, but maybe it was being planned or got producers at Bandai Namco thinking.

Owlboy Creator Makes Mockup Trailer For Hypothetical Chrono Trigger Sequel

Owlboy Creator Makes Mockup Trailer For Hypothetical Chrono Trigger Sequel

Fans will often create things they wish existed, whether through a fan film of Uncharted starring Nathan Fillion or modding games as they see fit. Sometimes fans go really above and beyond, though, and end up being both amazing and heartbreaking.

The creator of Owlboy, Simon S. Andersen, delights in making mockup games that do exactly that. He has now released probably his best and most hurtful of all, a mockup of a hypothetical third game in the Chrono series with a Chrono Break trailer. Andersen gives it pixelart look with high-quality sprites looking more like a late-PS1 or early Dreamcast 2D game. To be clear, this game does not exist, but boy do I wish I did.

Chrono Break was an unannounced and cancelled third game in the Chrono series. Trademarks were filed for the name and a number of producers at Square Enix have confirmed that early plans were in the works for the game. As Final Fantasy XI ramped up and required more work than Square Enix predicted, Chrono Break was cancelled to move resources to the MMORPG, with the rest of the team leaving the company to go freelance.
