The Soul Calibur V release date has been set to January 31st, 2012 in America and February 3rd, 2012 in Europe.

Soul Calibur V is the latest entry in the long-running weapons-based fighter where characters have freedom of movement in any direction and the game has a kind of medieval-style feel. This newest title is set directly after the events of Soul Calibur IV, taking place 17 years after the end of that game. The new protagonist of Soul Calibur V is Patroklos and his sister Pyrrha, who are the son and daughter (respectively) of Sophitia.

      “hopefully altair is availible as well” BULLSH*T. that would make no sense. they made ezio in the game because assassin’s creed brotherhood happened same time as SCV. altair……was a few hundred years back. so it would be stupid.

      just so you know, this game is not midieval style, this game takes place in the time of Renaissance, in the very late midievals about the time the new world is rediscoverd, ofc there is no real date set in soul calibur, but you can obviously tel, but you probably dont care anyway, what a shame
