Soul Calibur V's latest trailer introduces us to a few new faces and some old friends that will soon be stepping into the arena of champions. The youthful Xiba, who was introduced last month, uses a polearm to devastating effect - though his grating voice acting will arguably be just as offensive in a combat situation. Aeon, essentially the return of Lizardman, has now been revamped with a dual-wielding style that should afford him his own unique personality. Yoshimitsu will bring the pain with a seriously creepy new look as well as his trademark unpredictable manoeuvres.
And of course, Cervantes is back to kick everyone's ass, pirate style.
Why not check out our hands-on preview for more details about the next tale of swords and swords, eternally retold? As a longtime series fan, I'm so ready for this one.
