Soul Calibur is the second game in the Soul series of fighting games, originally under the title Soul Blade (or Soul Edge, depending on the version). Since this game, the rest of the games in the series were under the "Soul Calibur" title, such as Soul Calibur II. It is also called Soul calibur because this is the first game in the series which includes the sword, Soul Calibur.
Three years after the events of "Soul Blade" the weapon uses Siegfried as its host, and now Siegfried is Nightmare, a knight wearing azure armor. Europe enters into a dark time of slaughters as he and his followers claim souls to strengthen the blade in its weakened state.
But a group of warriors are now after the weapon to stop it's destruction.
