It would seem nothing stays a secret for long these days, especially when it has anything to go with video games. Rumours are abound that the games coming to PlayStation Plus in September have already leaked. Cue gasps.
According to Gematsu, Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny and Tekken 6 might be coming to PlayStation Plus Classic in the not too distant future. We’d like to reiterate that this is a tentative maybe because, as of yet, no confirmations have been made.

However, while nothing has been confirmed or denied, the evidence would suggest that these games are coming into land; The Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee has recently rated both titles.
Said ratings are for PS 5 and PS 4, which strongly suggests that the updated ratings are so the PS conversions of the games can be added to Classics for all PlayStation Plus Premium users. Similar ratings have happened in the past, right before the games in questions were later confirmed to be coming to PlayStation Classics.
There’s also the fact that a lot of other PSP titles have been joining PS Classics lately, such as MediEvil: Resurrection and Ape Escape: On the Loose. PlayStation seems to be giving some much needed TLC to some PSP icons, and what titles are more iconic than Tekken 6 and Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny?
Released in 2007 and 2009, both games continued to please their loyal fandoms, with their arcade-style fighting mechanics enjoyably simple and brutal all at the same time. By ramping up the damage inflicted, and offering a loosely followed story, fans could dip in and out of these games without overexerting themselves.
Seeing as PS Plus is losing some of its best games in September, the inclusion of retro classics like Tekken and Soulcalibur would definitely soften the blow.
As of right now, we’re living in hope as much as you, dear reader. But the signs all suggest that good things are happening over at Sony. Even if it’s not these two games, we suspect other, equally beloved offerings will make their way to us before long.
The next PlayStation Plus update will go live on 19 September, removing several games, including Chicory and Watch Dogs 2.
