Assassin's Creed Hero To Make Cross-Genre Jump?
Namco BANDAI have long promised the usual guest star characters will show up in Soul Calibur 5. Past games have netted the likes of Legend of Zelda's Link, and Star Wars trio Darth Vader, Yoda and The Apprentice. I sat in on a Soul Calibur 5 developer demo at GamesCom, and when questioned on the matter of celebrity cameos, the Namco BANDAI rep wasn't very forthcoming, but her sly smile suggested the studio had plans in store.
Well, Joystiq appear to have been clued in on who might feature in Soul Calibur 5, and it's none other than Renaissance-era assassin, Ezio Auditore Di Firenze. Yes, the Assassin's Creed hero looks set to appear in the game, with an anonymous tipster sending the site an exclusive image from SC5's character-select screen, with Ezio present bold and proud. What do you think, Dealspwners? A good choice? Who else would you like to see show up? [Joystiq]
