Namco Bandai and Ubisoft have just announced that Ezio Auditore Assassin’s Creed will be a playable guest character in SoulCalibur V for PS3 and Xbox 360. This collaboration will let players control Ezio and his wide range of assassination tools including a Roman Longsword, Stiletto, Crossbow, Hidden gun and his trademark Hidden blade. In addition, Dampierre from SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny will be available as an exclusive pre-order bonus playable character, and a feature-packed Collector’s Edition is coming to retailers across Europe.
Packed in a specially designed ‘book’ box, the Collector’s Edition of SoulCalibur V will include a high quality art book, original soundtrack CD, the making-of DVD, a DLC card for the Black Knight and Paladin armor sets, plus original artwork and letter on reproduction parchment paper signed by the team at Project Soul. Fans who pre-order SOULCALIBUR V at participating retailers will exclusively receive Dampierre from SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny as a playable character on day one.
