SOULCALIBUR V is on its way to the PS3 and Xbox 360. It will deliver an exhilarating 3D fighting mechanics, breathtaking visuals, and new characters, as well as expanding the online and character creation modes. SOULCALIBUR V is poised to become the preeminent fighting game experience of 2012. Personally, in the last few installments I have felt like the gameplay has gotten pretty stale, it always reminds me of what happened with Killer Instinct. I used to love Killer Instinct and then they just let that franchise go all to hell.
Developed by the legendary Project Sou team, SOULCALIBUR V picks up 17 years after the events of SOULCALIBUR IV with new heroes and returning warriors clashing in an epic showdown between good and evil. The tale of Patroklos, son of Sophitia Alexandra, unfolds as his family’s destiny intertwines with the Soul swords. With the series’ revolutionary 8-way run, allowing for true 3D movement during matches, a refined battle system, and stunning graphics, SOULCALIBUR V will be the top game of 2012 for anyone looking for a knock-down, drag-out fight.
