Have you ever wished you could play Soul Calibur on your PSP? Namco Bandai will hook you right up in the third quarter of this year with Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny on the Sony handheld. The game will offer the same style of weapons-based fighting you've come to know and perhaps even love in the core console franchise. Expect a bunch of returning faces in the game, as well as "brand new characters" joining the roster (though there's no mention of any Star Wars dudes in this one).
In addition to the requisite Soul Calibur modes--arcade, versus, and training--Namco says some kind of exclusive new single-player mode will be present in this version. You can play local wireless versus, but don't even think about playing it over the Internet (because you can't). An 80-mission survival mode and character customization round out the list of features Namco is talking about so far.
The PSP's got a decent D-pad and plenty of face and shoulder buttons on it, so I'd like to think this game will play reasonably well--though the company isn't letting us try it out firsthand just yet. At least it looks like the PSP can handle some decent-looking Soul Calibur-style visuals, if these here screens are any indication. Namco Bandai says a trailer will be forthcoming soon, so you can see this business in action.
