As reported back in May, Soul Calibur is punching its way to Wii in a new adventure-based game dubbed Soul Calibur Legends. Many thought the game was being toned down with the new 'adventure game' focus but Namco's making the game as brutal as ever by placing an emphasis on weapon-based combat that uses the Wii Remote.
Speaking exclusively to CVG, director Jin Okubo told us, "Many people have already experienced the sword play and action of Soul Calibur, but we really wanted to expand its potential - and that's why we decided to go in a new direction. We'd like to make Legends appeal even to people who have never played a game in the Soul Calibur series."
So how can we expect the Remote to be used? "By swinging the Wii Remote as players please, in-game characters will perform the exact sword actions that players are thinking of," Okubo added. "The Nunchuk is mainly used for body movement, but by shaking the Nunchuk it's also possible to block incoming attacks, evade dangerous situations, and to perform other unique moves. And there are various moves that can only be pulled off by combining Nunchuk and Wii Remote actions."
Look out for the full interview in the coming days where Okubo talks further on the control system, the characters we'll be seeing, the game's new direction and game modes other than adventure. We'll also have a batch of new and exclusive screens too!
