Namco Bandai revealed some juicy story and character info about the upcoming new chapter of the Soul Calibur franchise. As some already know, it will be set quite far in the future compared to Soul Calibur IV, precisely, seventeen years later. While some of the heroes from the old chapters will make a comeback (Siegfried and Mitsurugi have been confirmed, while visibly aged), new fighters from a new geneartion will walk the stage of history.
The new story has a new protagonist, Patroclus, son of Sophitia and of the swordsmith Rothion (apparently Sophithia died after the events of Soul Calibur IV), that inherited the short sword and shield style of his mother. He is searching for his missing sister, Pyrrha, that will be playable as well.
You can see them both in the gallery below, alongside the aged version of Siegfried and Mitsurugi and two new stages on which the combatants will do battle: the Sinking ship and the Torture Chamber.
