    Looks like SCV sold about 1 million fewer copies than SCIV.

    I’m pleased by this. As one of the people that actually supported bringing back the franchise, and what Daishi originally put forth for doing so, I hated what ultimately came about. I supported Soul Calibur making a return because I wanted to see a continuation of all the things I loved about the franchise, from its story to characters like Setsuka and Sophitia. If I had been told that supporting a return of the franchise would mean an unnecessary time skip, and the dev team forcing out veteran characters like Sophitia and Taki just to replace them with anime cliche knockoffs, I would have said the series should stay dead and keep its dignity intact. Before SCV, I wanted the series to come back, but after, I’d be happier to hear Namco Bandai say they’re retiring the whole franchise.
