The soul still burns for Nintendo fans. Updated with a little more information.
Update: 1UP has uncovered a little more information about Legends. The game looks like it will actually be a third-person adventure game set in the Soul Calibur universe, and not a traditional fighting game. The story will play a major part in the game, involving a lot of characters from games past, along with new characters.
The game will also have an experience system of sorts. As players defeat enemies, they can gain new titles and learn new moves.
NWR will have more information on this intriguing game in the SC series as soon as we can get our hands on it.
Soul Calibur 2 was one of the only multiplatform games to sell better on GameCube than on PS2 or Xbox, but Namco still decided to make Soul Calibur 3 a PS2-exclusive. There is very little information on in at this time, but Namco Bandai is creating a new fighting game called Soul Calibur Legends for Wii.
Famitsu has no screenshots in its report, but the magazine does say that the game takes place in the 16th century and that it will bring together characters from the entire Soul Calibur series. Legends will feature motion controls for sword-fighting. There is currently no release date.
