    This game must be rated "T for Teen" because have just "Blood and Gore", "Partial Nudity" and "Violence" and doesn't have "Intense Violence" and "Strong Language".
    Teenagers, buy this game!

      Hahaha it took 20 years for capcom and snk to realize that a lunatic 3d camera screws up gameplay mechanics.

            It probably won't happen because of the M rating but it would be cool if the Switch version got an exclusive character like Nintendo's Takamaru from The Mysterious Murasame Castle.

              Hope it comes out in January... like January 2nd.
              I returned MK11 because even with the physical copy, it took up 17gb of data. So, I have DB Fighterz and Street Fighter 2 to play with my overpriced, but awesome, arcade stick (Hori V).

                                              The original Samurai Showdown came out in 1994, and the series protagonist Is now in Soul Calibur itself.

                                              At least do some research, kid

                                              That Guy If anything, Soul Calibur stole some pages from Samurai Shodown, lol. Either way, Haohmaru from this game is going to be a guest character in Soul Calibur VI’s Season 2 DLC, so go figure.
