Soul Calibur III: new trailer

On Eurofiles. Complete with Yotoriami interview. Also, news that some old friends will be returning.

As more details of the characters in PS2-exclusive Soul Calibur III emerge, a new trailer for the game is now available for download from Eurofiles.

The trailer features game footage plus an interview with producer Hiroaki Yotoriami, who describes SCIII as "a totally new experience" in the video.

"This is probably the finest group of developers Namco has ever assembled," he says.

"Knowing what this group can do and actually seeing what we are creating right now, I can't wait to complete this game so that everyone can see it for themselves."

He goes on to explain how the team looked at what they could do to take the series further. They decided that "The answer is to create your own character, the character you've only dreamed of," he says, accompanied by pictures of a character wearing nothing but a jockstrap.

The trailer features previously announced new characters Setsuka, Tira and Zasalamel. Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has recently revealed that we can also look forward to greeting some old friends, namely Cassandra, Voldo, Raphael, Astaroth and Ivy.

Famitsu says the characters don't seem to have undergone many changes to either their appearances or their weapons, apart from the odd exception like Raphael sporting a green outfit with a red cloak.

Soul Calibur III is slated to launch in Japan this September and before Christmas in Europe. Namco has already announced that the game will not feature an online mode, or any guest cameos as in previous instalments. It has also revealed the Soul Calibur series will definitely make it onto next-gen consoles.
