Mitsurugi Steps Out Of Mist Stance, Returns For Soulcalibur V

By Ishaan . May 29, 2011 . 3:00pm

The folks over at Soulcalibur community, 8WayRun, have dug another hidden character sketch up from the Soulcalibur V website, and this time, it’s Mitsurugi.


SoulCalibur V director, Daishi Odashima, appears to have noticed, but he’s waving it off with wink emotes and jokes over on Twitter.


Odashima also recently confirmed that the “Soul Crush” moves would not be returning in Soulcalibur V. “That spec is no good,” he told a fan on Twitter. “Didn’t turn out right. So instead this time round…”

  • Aw man! I hope his sewing needle stance is still there. It was great.

  • Look at that grizzled vet. Just look.

    Soul Crushes were a silly concept. I don’t think I ever actually pulled one off, though…
    Loving Mitsurugi’s look though, great beard!

  • joesz

    Can’t wait to see Old hag Ivy.

    • Saggy boobies D:

    • Klarktastic

      Isn’t she immortal or something?

      • She’s an alchemist, I bet she can extend her life span.

      • SlashZaku

        She has no soul.  Cervantes took it and she’s been walking around with an artificial one.  Also given in her SCIV ending where her sword gave it’s life/spirit to keep her alive, they could spin that as making her an immortal of some sorts.  In one of the Famitsu interviews a few weeks ago, they mentioned “old characters returning with new weapons” so if her old sword gave it’s life/spirit, it wouldn’t be animated anymore and she’d have to adjust her style or make a new one or get a new weapon (strictly a whip??).

  • I think I’ll main Mitsurugi (Mitsubishi :P, I dare anyone to miss the joke), since he’s the 1st Soul Series char I’ve played as, since Soul Edge.

  • Manly man is manly~

  • z_merquise

    Old bad-ass samurai are always awesome. Can’t wait to see this game in action.

    So this Soul Crush is the one with breaking armors and Critical Finishes, right?

    By the way, I like that the new director Odashima is very open to the fans and give his honest opinions on what would work on the game. That’s the kind of developers I really wanted to see. Wish him and his team the best of luck for this game.

    Odashima also recently confirmed that the “balance” would not be returning to the Soulcalibur franchise.

  • Bakuryukun

    I hope Seong Mi-na and Talim are still in the game.

  • PrinceHeir

    cannot wait this June 2 for the gameplay reveal trailer :P

  • …and in his old age, his soul has grown all the stronger.

    Now, I need only see Yoshimitsu and I’ll basically be sold.

  • Ace

    Who knocked up Sophita?

    • cocytusx

      Her husband, along with her kids, were mentioned countless times in the games. Tira’s ending in 3 has her trying to use her daughter as the new soul edge host.

  • Dimentionalist

    Wait, no death by facesitting? To quote a certain blond RPG hero… “DAMN IT ALLLLLLL!”

    • Just look at her son’s thighs. I think he could snap a skull or two. And, for once, the *Mung Daal voice* ladies~ will have a good time. 

  • ryukazama

    I can’t wait to see Hwang!

    Oh wait….

    *shake my head*
