At E3, Namco-Bandai have shown off the first trailer for a spin-off from one of the most-popular fighting game series around. [I]Soul Calibur[/I] Legends, a Wii exclusive, takes four of the series’ most-popular characters into a new action-adventure game.
Siegfried, Taki, Mitsurugi and Ivy, will star in the game, which will have a heavy emphasis on using the Wii’s controller. Graphically, the game is a step up from [I]Soul Calibur 3[/I], but definitely a step down from [I]Soul Calibur 4[/I], which also had a trailer with some tidbits of gameplay footage. By moving the Wii Remote vertically and/or horizontally, combos from the game can be used. Cooperative split-screen gameplay was also shown off, but was not shown to be separate, like [I]Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory[/I] or an actual part of the game like in [I]Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams[/I]. A release date was not given, but a 2008 release is likely. Check back with Mygamer for updates and previews as more details come available.
