Soul Calibur V: Combat Changes, New Characters Revealed
Soul Calibur V is gonna be great. We're just all sorts of convinced.
To learn a little more about it, visit the PlayStation Blog where the game's producer, Hisaharu Tago, gave us a look at a couple new characters. Plus, he talked about the new logo for Project Soul; the original team was disbanded after SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny released for the PSP, but the fans wanted more Soul Calibur. Hence, the new logo is an appreciation to the fans who stepped up and demanded the team get back together; now, SCV represents a "new era and direction."
He then talks about changes to the battle system. The game will be "faster and sharper" and if you've seen some of the gameplay trailers, you've probably spotted the upgrades. One of the new features is the Quick Move high-speed evasion maneuver, and we always love the spiffy combos one can execute. But don't you worry about these changes bringing an imbalance to the experience:
"We know that innovation causes not only expectation, but concern as well. Please be reassured that we understand that characters fans are used to must not be completely changed, and that these innovations must not make the game unbalanced. We are working day and night to ensure that the game will be well balanced and make for an exciting and satisfying gamepay experience."
Tago then shows us three characters; two of which are new. He reassures everyone that Ivy will return and look very much the same; "her eternal existence is promised." The two new characters are Natsu and Z.W.E.I. The latter gives us a hint as to the weapon-based combat; any sword we've seen with "Zwei-" in the title has always been a massive two-handed blade.
Anyway, good to see Ivy. She's the best.
