The reason the sequel to SoulEdge was named SoulCalibur was due to a trademark issue that had occurred when Namco attempted to release the original SoulEdge game on the PlayStation outside of Japan. The owner of Edge Games, Tim Langdell, had threatened to sue Namco for using the word 'Edge' in a video game, claiming that he owned the exclusive right to the word in the context of video games. As a result, SoulEdge's sequel was released as SoulCalibur, with the spelling altered intentionally as a way of avoiding additional problems with the word 'Caliber.'
