Soulcalibur 3 Arcade Data goes to Mobile

SC3 Arcade LogoThe weapon based fighting game Soulcalibur III will release an arcade version in Japan on April 2006. Now instead of using the traditional data cards on which some games like Tekken 5, Initial D, Mario Kart Arcade, etc., it will use mobile technology.

Just like Soulcalibur 2, Soulcalibur 3 will have a conquest mode which makes the players will select a nation and try to beat the other nations that other players joined up in. The player will face an opponent AI of the player on which the AI will try to emulate how the actual player plays his character. After the game, you will collect Soul Points to be able to customize your character. The game will display a bar code that the mobile phone can read and store it there and be registered as your Soulcalibur 3 data. This feature is only available in Japan for now. So for those without phones with bar code readers, they have to input passwords to be able to resume their play.

I hope that the data saved also includes your wins and losses since itÂ’s not specified as of now. I certainly doubt that the technology used for SC3 will be applicable on other countries. Namco should have sticked with the data cards since it is much more accessible. Still, it wouldn’t hurt trying out the new technologies.
