Soul Calibur V Date Confirmed, Ezio Launch Trailer
It was pseudo-confirmed before and now we have the official press release.
Namco Bandai has confirmed that Soul Calibur V will launch on January 31 in North America and February 3 in Europe for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The publisher also confirmed that Assassin's Creed protagonist Ezio Auditore will be the special guest character.
Ezio will be able to use a Roman Longsword, Stiletto, Crossbow, Hidden Gun, and his trademark Hidden Blade in combat. Also, for Europe, Dampierre from SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny will be available as an exclusive pre-order bonus playable character; not sure if this deal will be in effect for the US.
Said Olivier Comte, Namco Bandai Partners Senior Vice President:
"The entrance of Assassin’s Creed into the Soulcalibur universe is an historic meeting of two of the most revered and influential game series. Ezio has captured the imaginations of millions of fans around the world, and it will be very exciting to see how his lightning fast moves stand up to the mighty swordplay of Soulcalibur’s finest."
Lastly, Namco revealed the Collector's Edition, which will feature a high-quality art book, original soundtrack CD, making-of DVD, a DLC voucher for the Black Knight and Paladin armor sets, and original artwork and letter reproduction parchment signed by the entire Project Soul team. No price on this just yet, but we imagine the fans are excited.
