Siegfried Will Not Be The Main Character In The Next SoulCalibur Game
Daishi Odashima, Director of the Soul Calibur games, started tweeting about past Soul Calibur titles recently, including one little question: “Who does everyone think is SC’s main character? I think, SE=Mitsu, SC1=Xiang, SC2=Nightmare? SC3=Sieg? SC4=Sieg.”The following day he continued: “Personal favorites aside, seems like everyone thinks Siegfried is the main character. At least for the more recent series.” He continued: “All I can say for now is the main character for the new game will not be Siegfried. Keep it a secret!” Following that with “The main character cant be revealed yet so use your imagination for now 😛 All I can say is he/she will be deeply involved with the 2 swords.”
It also seems that the title should have larger funding as one unrelated tweet stated: “My recent work is to get a higher budget for the game from the company!”
This may not seem like much at present but I find the early rumblings of a new Soul Calibur are exciting, not matter how trivial, if only to show that there will be a new addition to the series.
