Soul Calibur V: New Fighters, Character Creation Returns
Soul Calibur V looks great. Just about anyone who went hands-on at E3 will agree, too.
And for all you fighting fans, Namco has revealed a few new details: firstly, they say "half the roster" consists of all new characters we've never seen before. Secondly, and this ought to satisfy the hardcore SC aficionados, character creation will return! This was a definite fan favorite in SCIV and we have to assume this popular mechanic will be even more diverse and in-depth in the fifth installment. Oh, and although no fighting game really needs a great storyline, Namco wants to focus a bit more on the plots next time around. This is primarily to flesh out all those new characters and give 'em backgrounds and personalities, or so we assume. Overall, there will be between 20 and 30 characters in the game, which certainly sounds like a decent roster. Who's your favorite?
I remember being pretty damn good with Maxi and Ivy. Of course, that was a loooong time ago.
