Soul Falchion is a weapon-based fighting game using Takara's engine from their Game Boy, ''[[The King of Fighters]]'' games.
   
 
It has 20 characters, most (if not all) of which are based on characters from SNK's ''Last Blade'' and ''Samurai Shodown'' series, renamed (some with names taken from ''Mortal Kombat''), slightly modified and recolored. The sprites are smaller versions of the sprites used in the Neo-Geo Pocket Color games.

There are three versions dumped. The undumped multicart version differs from common dump of capcom fight 2003 in following ways:
   
 
*All of the music is taken from ''[[Super Fighter 2001 Alpha]]'', another V.Fame fighting game (although even the dumped version shares some tracks with that game, including the title screen).

*The game's name in the header is "Gals Fighters", which appears to be a leftover from Vast Fame's all-female fighting game ''[[Queen Fighter 2000]]''. Graphics of the character select screen and win portraits can be found in the ''Soul Falchion'' ROM.

*A title screen hack of this game is called ''Capcom Fight 2003'', despite not featuring any Capcom characters.

*The dumped version has a "Soul" boot logo which would replace Nintendo's if played using the original cart on a real Game Boy. This is unusual for both Vast Fame and Li Cheng, as both usually used their own custom logos (Vast Fame's being their own name, and Li Cheng's being "Niutoude")

*The music can sometimes speed up or slow down at different points in the game, such as between the title screen and the options menu, which seems to suggest Capcom's sound engine does not always interact well with Takara's fighting engine and Vast Fame's original code.

*On the intro screen, the character Sonya is portrayed to look very similar to ''Samurai Shodown 4''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s Sogetsu, but in-game plays more like Mai Shiranui. Ironically, the ''Soul Falchion'' character, Kider is the Sogetsu Clone, despite being fashioned after Asura.
