    Highly doubtful. I don't even see SCV running well on the system. At most you'll have a Broken Destiny-style game, where its basically the same engine but graphics are downgraded and content is severely cut. The 3DS ain't powerful enough for a straight SCV port.

    Heavily customised for the 3DS, perhaps?

    Yeah I don't see this happening either.

    I would much rather see it on the Vita. That would be awesome.

    I'd agree with Guild here. A Soul Calibur for the 3DS isn't impossible but a 3DS version of SCV just sounds unlikely.

    "Heavily customized" meaning "we stripped like all the features and basically just gave you barebones fighting".

    I mean Broken Destiny worked rather fine, but they cut so much content that it totally lacked a lot of what makes Soul Calibur excellent. Like almost nothing for single player. I know fighting games are basically for multiplayer but Soul Calibur has had rather respectable single player content. They'd probably have a similar thing for the 3DS. Cut down and not worth it.

    I guess I wouldn't mind a Vita version but it's already got a huge amount of fighters for not even getting an international release. BlazBlue, UMvC3, SFxT coming soon, and probably more inevitable titles. I would enjoy a bit more diversity I guess although if it was a pure port of SCV, that'd be rather worth it (with crossplay at least).

    lol No need to stress yourself out. In no way you can expect a straight on port for the 3DS, that's the only way if anyone ever wanted to see one for the system.

    3DS carts can hold up to 8GB compared with the 2GB of the UMD just saying...

    I'm pretty sure that they'll build it from the ground up instead. Check out the Super Street Fighter 4 port for reference. It was faithfully downgraded just like Ultimate MvC 3 was for the Vita. Honestly, why would you assume out of the gate the they're talking about a straight port anyways? I'm pretty sure every one here knows that it'll be a downgrade.

    And if this is true, they should include one of the characters from Muramasa: the Demon Blade, that would be fucking epic.

    EDIT: Pit as an exclusive character could work as well.

    My point is that they wont cut too much (if any) content.
    Of course the graphics will get downgraded

    Space capacity and content wise is a non issue.

    Maybe technical limitations?

    I prefer developer couldn't be arsed issues.

    Regarding space, I imagine cost could play a big factor as well like the DS.

    bear in mind resident evil 5 was running on a 3DS So I dont think this is impossible.
    I would love this game on 3DS.

    I wouldn't want a port, I'd like to see something built just for the 3DS. That's the whole reason I liked handheld gaming, the systems weren't capable of what the consoles could do so the devs went another way. That's why we have the lovely Mario Land series.

    Bullshit. I doubt the 3DS con run a good SoulCalibur V port. Although it's certainly possible if they downgrade certain assets like Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition.

    While the Vita can run a more faithful port than the 3DS, it still would have to be downgraded a lot.

    Resident Evil Revelations Developement started by a direct port of Re5 to the 3Ds, the 3Ds has the minumum specs.

    I bet you I could port Resident Evil 5 to the PS1 if I tried. An extremely downgraded version but running nonetheless. See what I'm getting at?
