Soulcalibur: Rise of Legends (ソウルキャリバー:伝説の台頭 Sourukyaribā: Densetsu no taitō) is a game in the Soul series the events of this game takes place eight years after Soulcalibur IV.


After Siegfried, the wielder of Soul Calibur, was in battle against his nemesis, Nightmare, wielder of Soul Edge, he had face his greatest battle yet: to defeat this Azure Knight once and for all. After a long battle Siegfried was able to defeat Nightmare and spoke a few words:

"Our kind should not exist in this world. Not ever again."

After saying that Siegfried stabbed his Soul Calibur into the ground and froze Nightmare into ice also himself had to go from this world sow also he was frozen into ice as both Siegfried and Nightmare where frozen into ice and would never be released again, until a Woman ended up there for some reason. She saw a huge ice field spread over the tower floor. As she walked close, she saw that a man and another object was frozen into ice.

Then the Woman saw the legendary Spirit Sword, Soul Calibur. Without any effort, she grabbed Soul Calibur. With this action, all the ice began to vanish, and Siegfried woke up.

"Where... am I?" Siegfried spoke.

"I have awakened you, by removing Soul Calibur from the ice." The Woman spoke.

Siegfried explained that she should let the sword into the ice, because Nightmare will return to the world. But as weakened as he was, he vanished into thin air with the words:

"Finally I been released from this cage..."

Now that Nightmare has been vanished Siegfried thought it was time to lay Soul Calibur and Soul Edge both to rest, and not being the wielder of the Spirit Sword anymore. The Woman spoke with Siegfried that it was her fault that Nightmare had escaped but Siegfried had fulfilled his destiny as the wielder of Soul Calibur. However, Nightmare would pay his deeds by many in another time.

Later both Soul Calibur and Soul Edge where put to rest and Siegfried and the Woman both parted ways again.

Eight years after the two swords where laid to rest Nightmare appeared again from the shadows and made his presence by destroying several villages and slaying everyone who fought him.

In one of those villages, the Woman, knowned as Leandra Scott, heard about the return of the Azure Knight and decided to search for him and defeat him like Siegfried did eight years ago.

But to defeat him she needed the weapon that defeated him earlier eight years ago Soul Calibur The Spirit Sword but Siegfried sealed it away on a place no-one could ever find without a map, But Leandra heard that in the same village a man lived who might had the map to the location of the resting place of Soul Calibur.

This man named Xie Tian had the map in his possession, he found it awhile ago, but wasn't giving up the map that easily, Leandra had to earn it by doing liitle test of combat to see or she was worthy to receive this map that would lead Leandra to the location of Soul Calibur and once she would have the sword in her grasp she would take care of Nightmare and to defeat him like Siegfried did eight years ago.
