TGS2011: Two More Characters Confirmed for Soul Calibur V; One New, One Returning

September 14, 2011

The character roster for Soul Calibur V has been a constant concern for series fans, especially considering the amount of new characters the game will feature. Namco used the Tokyo Game Show to announce two more characters for the title, and similar to when Ivy was confirmed, there is a mix of new and old. This time, the returning character is series staple and hulking mass of agony and terror, Astaroth.

The newcomer is a shady purple clad female named Viola. Viola and fellow newcomer Zwei are apparently working together, but you probably would have made that connection from their clothes. They’re both wearing purple. Soul Calibur V is expected on HD consoles early next year. Hit the break for a screen of Viola.
