Could Assassin’s Creed’s own Ezio Auditore have snuck his way into the character roster for Soul Calibur V?
PS3Blog.net reportedly managed to snatch this image of the assassin from a Soul Calibur V event held in San Francisco:
This is not the first time Namco’s brawler has seen crossover fighters. Soul Calibur 2 included Tekken’s Heihachi in the PS2 version, Link with the Gamecube version and Todd McFarlane’s Spawn as part of the Xbox version. Soul Calibur 4 also had console specific characters in the form of Darth Vader and Yoda.
Additionally, the live blog apparently mentioned a release date of January 31st 2012 as ‘confirmed’ for the fighter.
It’s still only rumour until Namco-Bandai says otherwise, but Ezio would undoubtedly be a welcome addition to Soul Calibur V’s roster in the eyes of many.
