Early Soulcalibur games being considered for DLC release

With Soulcalibur V on the way soon, game director Daishi Odashima is getting pretty chatty on Twitter. While some of his posts relate to game design theory and the reasons behind certain decisions, he’s also getting awfully close to letting certain cats out of certain bags.

On Twitter (in Japanese), Odashima compared the upcoming game to an earlier model, Soulcalibur 2. He explained that – just like SC2, each attack will have its own “level”, relating directly to its priority. Unlike SC2, the SC5 model will be more subtle, however.

Then, in a move certain to get Namco Bandai a little hot under the collar, Odashima – unprompted – revealed that the company is “thinking of releasing past SC series as DLC”.

We’re not sure if that’s DLC packs for SC5, standalone games or something else – but, when Namco want us to know, I’m sure we’ll find out.
