New Soulcalibur V Screens Showcase New And Returning Fighters

As a longtime fan of the series, I came away from Soulcalibur V's TGS build very impressed. I'm eagerly awaiting the game's early 2012 release, and Namco has released some new screens to make the wait a little easier.

In the gallery below, you'll see the returning Cervantes and perennial oddball Yoshimitsu. In addition, you'll see new characters Aeon and Xiba. The former appears to be some sort of winged, fire-breathing version of Lizardman, and we wouldn't be surprised to learn that the bow-wielding Xiba is a student of Kilik. Soulcalibur V will hit the PS3 and 360 on January 31, 2012.

  • I'm due to pick up a Soul Calibur game in the near future, I remember enjoying one of the titles on the original Xbox...


  • *Bo wielding. Not bow-wielding. Just sayin'. Otherwise, I'm pretty jazzed about this one.
  • Is Lizardman flying?
  • Huh...Cervantes looks very much...Not undead. I do like the swashbuckler getup though.
  • Please let spawn make his return.

  • "Bo-wielding," not "Bow-wielding"

  • Is it just me or does Cervantes have a Sean Connery (Highlander) thing goin' on this time around?

  • Yoshimitsu = Ultra Win.
  • Now they just need to confirm Talim and I'd be happy. But question; What on earth did they do Cervantes? Why is he no longer undead and bad***?
  • My experience with fighting games is kind of hit and miss. super street fighter 4 - eh mortal kombat vs DCU = ok for a little while then it sucked soul caliber 4 - loved it got every achievment and put in over 90 hours I really hope this one doesnt dissapoint. I love the easyness of SC4 to use moves instead of it being really complex like in other fighting games. One of my biggest problems thouugh is that in every fighting game if the opponent dissconnects you dont get credit for winning. Something else I dont want to see in this game are achievements for completing people "trials" like in ohter fighting games. I dont want to have to try and master X amount of characters most complex moves.
  • So...I wasn't a big fan of this game, but when I did still have it I liked Cervantas. He's not a zombie pirate anymore?

  • To much Cervantes  screens, not enough ***. Show more Ivy!

  • Well that's not a shock.  But that *** pirate is all fleshy again!

  • sweet, can't wait for this!!

  • I don't know I wasn't a huge fan of SC4 so maybe I'll check this one out.

  • Oooh! Plenty of favourites! I'm liking the new costumes... although Cervantes' costume looks a bit odd on him.

  • i already hated lizard man......................now he flies
  • Cervantes looks...yeah.

  • Aeon is the original Lizardman.
  • It's been years since I've started playing Tekken and Soul Calibur, and I still don't understand why Yoshimitsu appears in both games.
