Soul Calibur V: It's About.. Time?

As many of you probably know, Soul Calibur V was recently announced and for fans of this series, this was great news. With a new game comes many changes however. The main cast is said to be getting divided. That is, some characters from previous games will be returning but definitely not all of them. Seeing as how the game takes place 17 years after the events in Soul Calibur IV, this shouldn't come as a big surprise and we can start guessing who's probably getting the boot. In a recent interview, it was mentioned that not only are the Soul Calibur and Soul Edge weapons being redesigned for this timeline but Siegfried might not be making a return. Being a main character since the original game 'Soul Edge', this was sure to shake up a few people. Female characters (not usually aging well) will probably be hit or miss on returning. Ivy was getting rather old but had such a unique playstyle that she would be very difficult to replace. Talim is most definitely coming back (being only in her mid-teens during the events of SC4). Sophitia is debatable as well. Her son is confirmed to be playable in this game with a spinoff of her style, a faster and more agile version.



We've been promised that gameplay is to be generally sped up and attacks and offense are going to be easier to initiate. Weapons in general will also be much smaller for storyline purposes. So what do you all think? Will you be looking forward to this game? Are there any characters you want to return or think won't make it?

  6. Fighting games that jump ahead in years is never a bad thing. Just see Street Fighter 3 and Fatal Fury Mark of the Wolves. I just worried after how bad SCIV was
