Witcher Geralt will appear in another game this year and it's probably Soulcalibur 6

Or Pokémon Go.

Witcher video game maker CD Projekt Red has teased that star character Geralt will appear - for the very first time - in another game, and this year.

"What if Geralt was going to step out of the The Witcher for the very first time to make an appearance in one of the upcoming games later this year?" tweeted CDPR community manager Marcin Momot.

Which game could it be? The odds-on favourite is Soulcalibur 6, another game in Bandai Namco's portfolio. It's also a series with penchant for high profile cameos. Link appeared in Soulcalibur 2 on GameCube, Darth Vader and Yoda in Soulcalibur 4, and Ezio in Soulcalibur 5.

Soulcalibur's weapon-based fighting suits Geralt well. His array of Witcher Signs - a kind of magic - could also presumably power special attacks. Will Geralt be the only star cameo in the game, though, or will there be more?

Soulcalibur 6 is due this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One but was only announced relatively recently so we haven't seen much of it. Associating itself with best-selling Witcher series will certainly work wonders for exposure.
