The PlayStation version was renamed Soul Blade in North America, Europe, and Australia. The game was a commercial and critical success and was followed up with Soulcalibur in July 1998. Soul Edge is the first installment in the Soul series and centers upon the eponymous sword, shrouded in mystery and rumored to offer unlimited power to anyone who can find and wield it. Nine warriors embark on a journey to pursue a tenth who is rumored to have the sword, some to claim it and others to destroy it, but what many do not know is that the sword's power is evil, feeding upon the souls of not only its victims but its wielder as well.

According to a timeline released by Namco in its Soul Archive site, Soul Edge's events take place in the year 1584. The game tells the tale of warriors searching for the ultimate sword, “Soul Edge”. It has been given many names throughout the history, such as “The Sword of Salvation”, “The Sword of Heroes” and “The Ultimate Sword”, among others. Many strong warriors searched for years, but very few actually found it. The sword, currently in the form of a twin pair of long swords, appeared mysteriously in an auction. It was taken by the dreaded pirate Cervantes de Leon and nothing is known of his fate thereafter. Presently, nine warriors from around the world (Hwang, Li Long, Mitsurugi, Rock, Seong Mi-na, Siegfried, Sophitia, Taki, and Voldo) search for the sword for different reasons. Some desire its power, others want revenge. Some, believing that it is a benevolent sword, crave its support. Others, knowing of its evil nature, seek its destruction. Nothing is known for certain about the sword, except for one thing: it brings misfortune to those seeking it.
