When I was testing Soul Calibur Legends out, the first thing that popped into mind was the motion controls in Bleach: Shattered Blade. So I asked Jin Okubo, the producer of Soul Calibur Legends, if there will ever be a Soul Calibur fighting game on the Wii maybe in the vein of Bleach: Shattered Blade. Here’s what he said back:

 

“As far as a Bleach style fighting games that’s a possibility. That’s not something the team specifically has in the works right now, but it’s not something that you can definitely rule out. Right now, what the team has been focusing on reproducing the players actions on screen. Right now, they are focusing on games that link the characters on screen and the player. That’s why we have a game like Soul Calibur Legends now because we feel it really links the player and the character. That’s something we feel a third person perspective game is suited towards. As far as where the [Soul Calibur] series is going to go from here it’s up in the air at this point. Obviously, it depends on how fans react to Soul Calibur Legends, but it could be going in different directions.”

    I hope not like Bleach. I played it and didn’t care for it at all. The controls were meh. Just flicked my wrist around and that was it. It felt like I was shaking the remote like an idiot rather than playing a video game.

    So he’s he saying if enough people buy SCL, they’ll make a real SC game or he’s he saying that if people say it sucks and don’t buy SCL, that they’ll go headed and make a real SC?

    yai, bring me SC4 in SD, hell, even SC3 with online features would suffice, that said… Wii could do a lot better than that.

    In other words: No. But wait! If we got inspired to make something like that we might! Yes! But really, no.
