The lights are on
Bandai Namco has released a handful of screens highlighting Hilde from the upcoming Soulcalibur Lost Swords, the free-to-play, PlayStation 3 exclusive game coming this spring.
Hilde is not a new Soulcalibur character, but she isn't one of the originals as she appeared only in recent Soulscalibur games. You can check out a handful of screens featuring her in the gallery below. Here's her abbreviated bio from Bandai Namco:
As the heir to the King of Wolfkrone, Hilde showed an ability to rule and gather people at an early age. After her father’s insanity, our heroin had to show to her people that a true leader remains within the Kingdom: the quest to destroy Soul Edge was depending on her now…
Originally announced back in the fall of 2013, Soulcalibur Lost Swords was supposed to be available in the winter, but received a push to spring 2014.

Free-to-play Soulcalibur? Count me in.
PS3 only? I am deeply saddened.
Them DSLs though.
The Soul Calibur games were really fun to play. My favorite character was Nightmare; I loved using his huge sword to do devastating attacks on my opponents.
If they make Kilik a proper character again, I might consider playing it. Couldn't believe what they did to him with SCV.
Oh darn I wanted a full retail version of Soul Calibur. It should be named "Soul Calibur 6: We are sorry for killing off Sophia and not including Cassandra". All in all 5 was okay.
This is the first time I have heard something about this! I can't wait to try it out.
