Soul Calibur V Fights Its Way To Shelves On January 31
Soul Calibur has always been awesome. Therefore, January just got a little awesomer.
Today, Namco Bandai Games America Inc. has announced that Soul Calibur V will release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America on January 31.
Featuring returning favorites and Ezio Auditore de Firenze from Ubisoft's uber-popular Assassin's Creed series, the fifth installment is set 17 years after its predecessor. If you're a big SC fan, you can pick up the Collector's Edition, which features a soundtrack CD, making-of video content, hardcover art book and the Dark Knight and White Knight downloadable armor sets for Character Creation Mode. Fantastic stuff for the hardcore followers! Said Namco Bandai Vice President of Marketing Carlson Choi:
"Fighting game fans have been itching to get their hands on SOULCALIBUR V to begin mastering classic characters and new heroes alike. We are excited to see what top players and newcomers discover with the new Brave Edge and Critical Edge systems which are bound to create dynamic and exhilarating battles."
Namco also revealed the pre-order incentives: if you put your deposit down at GameStop, you'll get a free Ivy Valentine Bobble Budd figurine (it's just a decorative toy, you perverts). Pre-ordering at Best Buy nets you a free exclusive character download code to play as Dampierre, and 24-hour Wal-Mart locations will hand out an exclusive limited edition laser art-cell. Some Wal-Marts will also be hosting "Fastest Way to Play" midnight launch events.
All pre-order bonuses are only available "while supplies last" so get movin'.
