Namco brought along their recently announced Soul Calibur V
to E3 in Los Angeles. The classic weapon-fighter has been freshened up for a whole new generation of fight-fans. The game is currently on track for a 2012 release on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Four characters were revealed at the show, two new and two returning. In the images below you can get your first looks at Mitsurugi, Siegfried, Patraklos, and Pyrrha in the new game.
I thought that it was stated that the game was moving solely to short swords, because it looks to me like Siegfried and Mitsurugi are still wielding longer blades... which is perfectly fine to me.
