Soul Calibur V Officially Announced

Namco has officially announced Soul Calibur V. There’s not many details available at the moment but we do know it’s coming sometime in 2012. Most likely for the PS3 and Xbox 360.


It was announced at the end of last year that a new Soul Calibur was in development. It was obviously Soul Calibur V but it’s nice to know that it’s officially confirmed now. Unfortunately, it looks like we might have to wait until E3 for anything significant.

Update: According to the game’s producer, Daishi Odashima, Soul Calibur V takes place after the events of SCIV (obviously). The main character this time around is Patroklos, the son of Sophitia. A video of the teaser is now on YouTube but it doesn’t reveal much at all.

  1. I wonder if Kratos will be in it? or even better Kevin Butler.:P
    I have never played a single one but i will keep an eye out on this.

    • Last one had darth vader didn’t it? a lot of people moaned he was a rubbish character, so kb is a good shout. Perhaps nate Drake? sonic the hedgehog? or the old lady detective from blue toad?

    • They are tidy beat-em up’s. Cool weapons and F**koff swords! I’ll be keeping an eye out for this one too

    • FFS, one more game and thats it!, Dante’s more badness than that mental nutcase from Sparta or Olmypus whereever he may be?!


      I vote for Kevin Butler with Norse armour (Valkrie… eh spelling aah!)

  2. I really hope this one has a decent single player, I really enjoyed the GC and PS2 games but the latest one was really dull, there was nothing to do.

    • My thoughts exactly! Bring back weapon master mode! :)

      • I actually think the Dreamcast version was the most balanced…

  3. Kratos should be the PS3 exclusive character!!

  4. Awesome Soul Calibur is a lot of fun but Mortal Kombat remains my favourite ;)

  5. Soooouuuuullllcalibbbbeeeeerrr. Great games.
