Gorgeous Soulcalibur IV screens define next-gen fighting

This is what real next-gen fighting games look like. Namco's latest batch of Soulcalibur IV screenshots look absolutely incredible. In fact, many of the environments had us questioning if these were in real-time or not. One look at Taki's enhancements, however, will realize that not everything in this PS3/Xbox 360 sequel is totally realistic.

Check out our new gallery below:

New Soul Caliber screenshots show off Ivy's enchancements

Video games have come a long way. Soul Calibur 4 is one such game. While the original version, which we're not attributing to the arcade but on the Dreamcast (which was basically the arcade console for a while), was amazing, each additional title in the franchise looks better and better and plays more fluidly than the last. The newest game in the franchise has a few screenshots released to the world at large and they're impressive. Most are of the character Ivy, because she wears skimpy clothes or something, but they show off what we can expect when the game releases sometime next year. So, enjoy!

Soul Calibur IV to feature online play

The latest issue of EGM includes a nice little tidbit of info about Soul Calibur IV, reports 1Up. The game will feature online play, for the first time in the series. Most fighting games, with Mortal Kombat as the exception, have shied away from online play in the past, citing latency and a lack of timing accuracy as the reason why. Katsutoshi Sasaki, director of Soul Calibur IV, explained what has changed in this respect by stating "the next-gen platforms have network infrastructure already in place." Clearly this allows for much better connections between machines, allowing pin-point accuracy for special move combos.

No doubt more information about Soul Calibur IV will be released during E3. We'll keep you up to date during the show.

Soul Calibur IV officially unveiled, teased

Considered by many to be the best weapons-based fighting game around, 1UP is giving gamers an early tease of their upcoming exclusive Soul Calibur feature for EGM. Namco is giving fighting fans exactly what they want as they have announced Soul Calibur 4 will be appearing exclusively on Xbox 360.

And PlayStation 3. While we're appreciative of this first-look, we're sad to admit that this has simply whet our appetite for more. Hopefully, it won't be too long until our local postal employee stops by our door and rescues us from our shriveled, frothing Soul Calibur-deprived lunacy.
