"The series revolves around a sword that, after years of bloodshed and hatred, gained a soul of its own, the Soul Edge, and the sword forged to counter it, the Soul Calibur. The popular series has spawned four games so far, with a fifth underway."
I played the first one when it came on PS1, and I thought it was great. It had an original idea, and energy pumping gameplay! I hope this continues the series well!
