It's been nearly three years since Soul Calibur IV hit the shelves, and after revealing a few juicy details about the sequel yesterday, Namco Bandai have officially dated the next chapter in the eternally-retold tale of souls and swords. Soul Calibur V is slated for 2012, though the offscreen announcement trailer showcases little beyond the hilariously overblown narration that we know and love.

During the same press conference, Namco Bandai also put an official release date on Dark Souls: the spiritual multiplatform sequel to the gruelling yet rewarding Demon's Souls. It's set to launch in "early October" - and if you're looking for a special edition pre-order, Carl has you covered.
Naturally we'll keep you posted when the exact dates are firmed up - and more details slip out.
