Soul Calibur: Battles of the Ages is a weapon based fighting game made by the Namco and Nickelodeon fans. This game is for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It is the updated version of Soul Calibur III.

FeaturesEdit

Features in Soul Calibur: Battles of the Ages include:

Create-a-SoulEdit

Create-A-Soul allows players to construct their very own characters by donning them with an assortment of clothing parts such as armor or robes. The player may also change the character's hairstyle color, eye color, skin color and facial features, ranging from young to old as well as voices. As the player completes tasks through the game, more parts can be unlocked for availability. Depending on the parts chosen, the character's alignment (good or evil) and personality (loud and brash or quiet and reserved) will change, which influences their dialogue in battle as well as their Destined Battle in Tales of Souls and Quick Play. Character construction first starts with the creation's gender, followed by their fighting style and weapon. All 13 jobs are and all the armor (inculding unlockable ones) are available at the start, but new armor can be unlocked. 9 of the styles also contain Soul styles, which allows the character to use the same weapons and fighting style as the playable characters. The Swordmaster style allows the creation to select all custom character disciplines and the Soul of Olcadan discipline.

Soul ArenaEdit

Contains two modes; Quick Play mode, in which the player fights through a gauntlet of opponents ending with Abyss, in the vein of the Arcade Mode of previous games; and Mission mode, in which the player chooses from a list of battles which feature unusual circumstances to overcome.

Tales of SoulsEdit

Choose one of the characters and lead them on a journey around the world, searching the Soul Edge. The player is given the option to choose what path the character takes, and depending on the choices made, and whether the player has lost a match, either Abyss or Night Terror will be fought as the final boss. There are also optional battles entitled 'Prepare to Defend Yourself' in which either a bonus character or unplayable character is faced; these battles may not be retried if lost, but the story progresses regardless. Also, created characters can be playble in this mode.

Chronicles of the SwordEdit

A separate storyline from the main Soul series. Players create a protagonist through the Create-a-Soul feature and goes through a series of battles in the vein of strategy RPGs such as the Fire Emblem series, with battles being resolved as traditional Soulcalibur-style matches. The characters can level up, which increases their effectiveness in these battles.

All Extra Weapons make a return from Soulcalibur II. The system is once again changed, this time based solely on abilities; normally 2 per weapon, 4 per Ultimate, and 3 occasionally. Icons are displayed telling every effect in detail for each weapon.

CharactersEdit

Nearly all characters who have been featured in a Soul series. Algol from Soul Calibur III returned to this game, but only as an non-playable enemy character appearing on the final stage of Tales of Souls and Quick Play. Other unlockable characters include personnel in the Chronicles of the Sword quest, opponents from the Tales of Souls mode, and the weapon, armor, and item shop owners. The styles of all playable characters can be used in custom characters; the classes that can use these styles are listed below.
