Blade & Soul
The storyline of Soul Blade is essentially an excuse for various showdowns over myriad backgrounds. Set in the 16th century, the title features warriors from various clans who are on a quest for the “Soul Edge,” a magical sword some belief holds ultimate combat power.
The warriors include those looking to use it for good…and evil. The characters include Taki, a female hunter you wouldn’t want to tangle with; Cervantes, a wicked looking pirate (you gotta love a fighting game with a pirate); Sophita, an emotional goddess (Namco’s description – but how does one become an emotional goddess?); Voldo, hell
Voldo, hell guardian (we’ll just leave it at that); Rock (the token slow-moving, “no one uses him” character); and others. The game also features hidden fighters, multiple endings and numerous costumes for each character, and other hidden surprises that flesh out the game.
