In an unusual move, it looks like a third SW character is getting added to the upcoming release of Soul Calibur IV. Strike that. It's already unusual that any SW character would appear in the Namco Bandai title but a third character past the already announced Yoda and Vader characters? While purists of the original Soul Calibur titles debate the issue, a trailer has appeared showing off the new "lightsaber" fighting techniques that will be given in the upcoming sequel, which you can watch below.
The latest addition is rumored to be Vader's secret apprentice Starkiller, who will be premiering in the upcoming cross platform title Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, which will be released on all the major gaming consoles. Yes, there will be Wii-mote lightsaber battles once that game hits markets Sept 16, 2008. The fact that Soul Calibur IV is expect to hit shelves July 29, 2008 gives Xbox 360ers and PS3ers a running head start on their lightsaber techniques.
