“Namco Bandai Pulls Controversial SoulCalibur V Ad”. Too bad It’s a Fake.

“Namco Bandai Pulls Controversial SoulCalibur V Ad”. Too bad It’s a Fake.

Remember the magazine ad Namco Bandai published in Japan in order to promote SoulCalibur V and that proudly displayed Ivy’s assets (and just that)?

Well, there’s another one. This time showcasing Voldo’s maybe less alluring assets. According to various sources the ad was published, between other venues, on Namco Bandai’s Facebook fan page, but the massive amount of protests and negative comments would have forced the publisher to pull it.

Unfortunately (considering that the ad is actually quite interesting, if any from a sociological point of  view), it’s also a fake, with Voldo’s midsection directly pulled from a SoulCalibur IV screenshot, as discovered by the clever guys at Joystiq.

You can check the fake ad out below. Personally, I still prefer Ivy’s assets, but maybe it’s just me.
