Soul Blade (known as Soul Edge in Japan) is a 1995 3D arcade fighting game developed by the team Project Soul and published by Namco. It is the first installment in the Soul series of fighting games. An upgraded and expanded version of the game was ported to the Sony PlayStation later that same year. Namco chose to use the title Soul Blade in Europe, North America and Australia; following Soul Edge's sequel, Soulcalibur, subsequent installments in the franchise have all been released under the title of Soulcalibur, by which the franchise is now most commonly known.
Soul Edge is the second 3D fighting game to feature characters that fight with weapons (the first being Battle Arena Toshinden), although putting weapons in fighters was not a new concept (Samurai Shodown is a notable example of a 2D fighter with weapons). Apart from the aesthetic benefits, giving the characters weapons allows for a greater diversity between them.
