Santa Clara, Calif., (October 17, 2008) – Due to overwhelming fan

soon be able to pit these adversaries against each other for the true
epic battle between dark and light. Soulcalibur(r) IV has shipped
millions of units worldwide since its July 29 launch and continues to
win audiences over with its rich gaming experience and robust feature
set.

Set to reveal the origins of this ongoing story, Soulcalibur IV features
new and familiar faces from across the galaxy who seeks the rival swords
for their own ambitions. The line-up of weapon-wielding fighters grows
as new characters add to the mythos including Hilde, a striking
armor-clad warrior who wields a short sword and spear. In addition to
the iconic Star Wars characters, the Secret Apprentice from LucasArts’
STAR WARS(r): The Force Unleashed(tm) also makes an appearance as a
guest character for both Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system.

Retooled from the ground up, Soulcalibur IV perfects its highly

players can now destroy protective armor; weakening their enemy’s
resolve and unleash Critical Finish moves to defeat opponents in one
spectacular blow. Also new to the series is the ability to battle
online against players from around the world using customized characters
or fan favorites to challenges others for global domination.
