Soul Calibur III PS2 exclusive?

You'll be able to create and customise your own character. Apparently.

The third instalment in the Soul Calibur series will be hitting the shelves this autumn, according to a report in US magazine GamePro. And, unlike its predecessor, Soul Calibur III is set to be a PS2 exclusive.

The game will feature 25 fighters, including three new ones. But most interestingly, you'll be able to create and customise your own character, selecting their gender, weapons and even occupation.

New modes are said to include 'Soul Arena' and 'Museum', with the latter offering a look back at the history of the series. And possibly a gift shop selling postcards and pencil sets.

Namco Europe declined to comment on the GamePro article, stating that "nothing has been announced." More as soon as something is.
