MESSAGE FROM THE PRODUCER

Dear SOULCALIBUR fans,

Since its release in October, SOULCALIBUR VI has been embraced by many players all over the world. Whether it’s all the community tournaments held around the globe or all the character creations profusely shared by fans on social media, every single member of PROJECT SOUL is overwhelmed by your response to the game. We are very grateful for your attention and continued support.

As we are fully committed to continuously improving the gameplay experience, we are constantly monitoring the community as we tweak and improve the game’s balance as best as possible. On top of watching various tournaments across the globe, the team also monitors and takes into account comments and opinions from players.

It must be said that it is very difficult for us to reply to each and every one of your enquiries due to the sheer amount that we receive on a daily-basis. That is why we are always ready to jump at every opportunity to communicate with you. This is one of the reasons we have decided to hold a community panel session for SOULCALIBUR VI during the upcoming EVO Japan.

We truly hope that with this community panel session, we will be able to actively join the community discourse surrounding the game and exchange opinions and ideas with SOULCALIBUR VI players from all over the world. We invite any and all players who are able to make it to attend our panel regardless of their level or experience regarding the game (just to be clear competing at EVO Japan is not a prerequisite to attending the panel).

Our aim is to provide an outlet for healthy discussion within our community and hope that we will all be having fun while doing that.

Lastly, as this event was announced without much notice, many of you might not be able to attend in person. We just want say that you can participate to the community discourse regardless by giving us your feedback on the link below.

We are very excited to the prospect of meeting you in Fukuoka. As SOULCALIBUR VI players compete for supremacy, let your SOUL burn for EVO Japan.
