Bandai Namco's weapon-based fighting series Soulcalibur has been out of the spotlight since 2018's Soulcalibur VI, but a new rumour suggests that it could be making a comeback of sorts.

According to journalist Nick Baker, Bandai Namco is looking to remaster Soulcalibur – although Baker admits that his source is unclear on whether this is just the first game or the entire series. The revelation was delivered during the latest Xbox Era podcast.

Soulcalibur began life in arcades in 1998 and was ported to the Sega Dreamcast the following year. The main series consists of six mainline entries, plus spin-offs like Soulcalibur Legends and Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny.

However, the true origins of the series can be traced back to 1995, when Namco released Soul Edge / Soul Blade in arcades. It was later ported to the PlayStation.
