Nightmare Will Terrorize Players In Soulcalibur V

By Spencer . May 25, 2011 . 1:02pm

nightmareSoulcalibur V director Daishi Odashima confirmed another Soulcalibur alum. Nightmare, the evil being formed from Siegfried after he was consumed by Soul Edge, will return as a playable character in Soulcalibur V.


Nightmare joins Siegfried and Sophita’s children Patroklos and Pyyrah in the ring. Right now, Soulcalibur IV‘s rings. Odashima is using Soulcalibur IV’s environments in Soulcalibur V for balancing purposes.


Oh, and speaking of Pyyrah….




… that’s a sketch of her.

    Sophitia with no armor has finally arrived…oh wait.

  • ShinkaRaioh

    Ok I’m officially interested in Pyrrah now, she seems to have nice clothing and I can’t withstand skirts in fights! :D

    Also, boy was I shocked when I read this: “Nightmare joins Siegfried and Sophita’s children Patroklos and Pyyrah..” I was like “What. They are on the same site now?! Again after further reading it was just meant for the game overall, lol, I need to learn to read the whole text before having crazy fantasies~

    Oh and I thought while reading the header, that Nightmare will distract you or will terrorize you while you play the game or something…xd

    She looks clumsy. I like.

    • theworldofnoboundries

      Well maybe when using her in the middle of her fight she will drop her weapon causing “dojikoo” attack to the opponent.(Here comes Moe!!! to Soul Calibur)

      and i believe this time nightmare will become more nightmarish like his head grows blade or everything becomes more spiky and…….. more burnable then.

  • Tim_at_where

    I wonder if Phyrra will still be infected by Soul Edge, as of #SoulCaliburV.

  • shy_mel

    Her stance in the picture looks similar to one of Cassandra’s, but her sword is on the ground and she looks worried.

    • Shinsua

      Well… if you saw the Voldo sketch on the other side of the paper…

      • lightningrook

        Who would be 67 now…

  • leadintea

    Well, I guess this means Sophitia and Cassandra are out.

    Pyyrha = Cassandra, Patroklos = Sophitia?

  • Shinsua

    *Scratches head*
    Hmm… this is off subject (slightly) but what’s the actual year V will take place?
    Yoshimitsu (who I’m praying will return) along with some of the other heavily Japanese characters have ties to a certain horrific “Demon Lord” who’s never actually seen character form. I don’t particularly know if the Soul team would be all for making characters based on historical figures… but… Capcom’s got a rather nice selection of Sengoku era fighters.

     My body… is ahhh like ready… or something… Did I say that right?

    • AnimusVox

      Almost….You get an ‘E’ for effort.

  • Humzah Jan

    Nightmare is best.

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    Nightmare is the best. No one can stop him (no pun intended)

    • joesz

      He’d be awesome if he were to be voiced by Snoopy.I can already see it.

  • Ace

    Who knocked up Sophita again?

  • PrinceHeir

    Pyrah is young :D

  • Phlo

    New in Soul Calibur V, the “sword on the ground” fighting style. Should shake things up a bit.

  • alundra311

    And that sketch of Pyyrah is how players will look like after Nightmare terrorizes them.

  • Croix

    Pyrrah looks adorable. A move away from fanservice toward solid gameplay and better looking characters would be one I very much support.

  • IsaacC

    Nightmare will kick butt in Soul Calibur V. “Gather before me, darkness of the abyss!”
