Namco has lifted the curtain on four more characters that will be playable in the forthcoming Soul Calibur V. Once again, two of the characters are returning and the other two are new to the Soul Calibur universe. The vets are Cervantes, looking shockingly human, and Yoshimitsu, who is now an integral part of the SC cast despite being from Tekken.
The two new characters look interesting enough. One of them is a staff wielding young man named Sheba who is clearly a Kilik replacement although his design is a lot more interesting than Kilik’s. The other newcomer is Aeon, though he is allegedly not a newcomer but an evolved form of Lizardman whom he strongly resembles. I look forward to seeing if he can actually use those wings. Hit the break for images of all four characters. Soul Calibur V is due in January of 2012.
