If you’ve been following our regularly updated Soul Calibur 5 characters page, you’ll already have seen the (unofficially confirmed) final four characters added to the fighting game’s roster.
Although they have yet to be officially confirmed by Namco Bandai, because they are seemingly secret character you get by beating the story mode, so they probably wanted to keep it quiet. However, they were discovered in early releases of the game (as the screenshots linked above show). To top it off, Elysium has been spotted in this official Soul Calibur V clip…
We won’t have to wait much longer for confirmation of these and any more fighters with the game being released in America on January 31 and in Europe on February 2, 2012.
I have it on good account the final tally is 28 characters. Without inevitable DLC of course, which technically Dampierre is the first of if you haven’t pre-ordered the game in America at Best Buy or got the Collector’s Edition in Europe.
It’s going to be a good week for fighting fans!
