Naturally it would also follow Tekken to the home console PlayStation in 1997 where it would receive a solid update with more modes, more music options, and new (hidden) characters. Renamed Soul Blade, it quickly became the favorite weapon-based fighting game and among some of the most popular fighters in general.
For it's time it was an amazing game. However, it has not aged well at all and isn't much of an enjoyable experience anymore. True fans of the Soul series should certainly take a look, but new fans looking to experience the roots of current entries like IV and Broken Destiny should only look back as far as Soulcalibur on the Dreamcast.
Soul Blade currently can only be played with the original disk for Playstation. It has not made a debut on any current generation console shops (PS3 or XBox 360).
