Soul Calibur 5 Details
Back in December, we saw Twitter posts from Namco’s producer Katsuhiro Harada and the Soul Calibur director, Daishi Odashima saying that the next Soul Calibur game was coming. Fast forward five months later and we now have a teaser trailer giving the official announcement for Soul Calibur 5 as well as some more details about the new game.
Currently what we know is the game takes place 17 years after the last game. One of the new characters (the one shown in the teaser trailer) is named Patroklos and he is the son of long time member of the Soul Calibur roster, Sophitia. Seigfried is also confirmed to be in the game once again, returning to using his Buster Sword sized weapon, Requiem instead of wielding the Soul Calibur. Guest characters are also scheduled to appear again (like Spawn, Link and Heihachi in SC2, and Darth Vader, Starkiller and Yoda in Soul Calibur 4) but there’s no info yet as to who it will be. We know Kratos has his hands full with Mortal Kombat to go back to SoCal, but perhaps, with the addition of
Fatalities Critical Finishes since the last game, maybe we could see Scorpion enter the fray?
Other things that we do know:
26+ character roster (with the game taking place 17 years after the game, we’ll see a lot of characters older, but there COULD be the chance that some will not be able to come back due to old age?)
Edit: Sophitia’s daughter, and Patroklos’ sister named Pyrrha is also confirmed to be a playable character in Soul Calibur 5.
So far, Soul Calibur V is set to come out sometime in 2012.
