As previously reported, there’s been a bit of a brouhaha over the ability to use Create-A-Souls characters in SoulCalibur VI‘s ranked matches. The issues range from customs affecting the game’s balance, to players using hacks to create characters that are covered by custom items.

Now, Bandai Namco seems to be taking steps towards addressing the issue. On the game’s official Japanese site, a new warning has been put up stating that players who use “inappropriate custom characters” may risk having the ability to play online taken from them.

The warning itself doesn’t cite anything specific, not really stating what an “inappropriate custom character” is. That said, this may refer to hacked characters with items that are beyond the in-game size limits. Additionally, this may also apply to characters with designs that might be deemed obscene or offensive.

Whatever the case may be, it seems that Bandai Namco is aware of the issues, and is taking steps to address them.
