There are rumours circulating the internet of a Soul Calibur title coming to the Wii later this year.

IGN Editor, Matt Cassamassina, spoke of the rumours in a recent podcast and mentioned that there is an unnamed title in development on the Wii that "anyone with a brain will be able to figure out."

Matt went on to say that the title used to be a fighting franchise that was released on the GameCube and sold very well, despite being a third party title. The mysterious game will now be updated to the Wii, but won't be a fighting game anymore. Instead he describes is as "some kind of crazy ass adventure game."

Well, that sounds right up our street, even if Matt says; "who the hell knows if it'll be any good."

As Kotaku points out, there weren't exactly boatloads of third party fighters on GameCube . Well known and obvious franchises include Mortal Kombat and Soul Calibur however, with most of the rumours leading hopeful fist-flingers to pray for a Soul Calibur sequel.

It won't be the first time the Soul Calibur series has tried something a little more 'adventurey' either as Soul Calibur II included a light adventure campaign called Weapon Master.

Soul Calibur is one of our favourite fighting series' and the second instalment in the franchise saw many of us through several long, beer-fuelled nights at university, so we've got our fingers crossed that the rumours will come true and that the Wii will be blessed with a decently deep 3D fighter.
