In this week's IGN Wii-k In Review
podcast, Mr. Casamassina
unleashed a rumor that promptly sent eighty-nine fans into spontaneous combustion (including poor David
, his skin is coal black): Soul Calbur
might be coming to the Wii
. He refuses to speak the title by name, fearing some sort of silly massive lawsuit, but he comments that a very popular third-party fighting franchise seen on the Gamecube is coming to the Wii. Unless you count the import Naruto 3
, Soul Calibur
from Namco is pretty much the end-all-be-all of third-party fighting games on the 'Cube.
However, he also comments that the franchise will no longer be seen as a fighting game, but as an adventure game. The mythos behind Soul Calibur certainly has the potential to drive a fully-fledged adventure, but will the play mechanics remain similar? And are we just getting this as a runner-up prize because the 360 and PS3 might receive the long-awaited Soul Calibur 4?
time will tell.
