Bandai Namco Games' weapons-based brawler SoulCalibur VI has entered the UK Charts in eighth place.

Physical sales of the critically acclaimed scrapper are down over 55% when compared to its 2012 predecessor, although it's just the latest in a long line of major releases to fewer copies sold at brick-and-mortar retailers.

Still, it's not a particularly good start for Project Soul's venerable fighting game franchise, particularly when they've said that SoulCalibur VI's sales many affect the future of the brand.

Presumably digital sales of SoulCalibur VI are significantly higher than SoulCalibur V's, simply due to the fact more people are consuming their games by digital download nowadays. From a personal view, it deserves the attention; SoulCalibur VI is a cracking little fighter, so go pick it up.
