Soulcalibur: Lost Swords trailer highlights new customization systems

The launch trailer for Soulcalibur: Lost Swords showcases character customization options and new features such as the elemental system that allows players to customize and forge new weapons with three elements.

Weapons in the free-to-play game can possess an elemental power — where fire beats wind, wind beats water, water beats fire — governed by a light or dark association. Players can collect virtual items and weapons by using Soul Crush to make opponents drop loot or purchase them online. Additionally, in-game items can be created or upgraded using the game's crafting system, as highlighted in the video above.

Players can also create their own or tweak existing fighters with the character customization system, where characters' armory and clothing affect their abilities and stats. Soulcalibur: Lost Swords features at least eight playable characters, including Mitsurugi, Siegfried, Sophitia, Ivy, Astaroth, Nightmare and Pyrrha.

The single-player PlayStation 3 title was announced for a North American release last year during a pre-Tokyo Game Show press event. Originally scheduled for release in Japan last year, it was recently confirmed for launch in the region on Feb. 6 .
