Video footage of the four recently revealed Soul Calibur V characters is now available and it is definitely worth checking out. According to this Japanese trailer, we can now confirm that Sheba is indeed a Kilik replacement. The other characters really aren’t all that new either. Cervantes looks different and I’m definitely interested in finding out what happened to him but he still appears to play the same way.
Yoshimitsu is a puzzling as ever and his mask this time is notably awesome. Apparently there’s still no word on Xianghua’s daughter Leixia, but she looks as if she’ll play similarly to Xianghua, in which case a nasty pattern is clearly discernible. A character really isn’t new if they play the same way as an old character. Soul Calibur V will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 in January. Hit the break for the trailer.
