    Taki should consider wearing a bra…not that I don’t mind at her showing her nips *nose bleed*

    • one piece bikini.

    • fairysun

      It’s part of her combat strategy.
      When male enemy is distracted by those bazoongas …. free hit for her.

      • Realistically kunoichi actually did use sex appeal as a distraction.

        • David García Abril

          Not like this.

          • JuhRo


          • Oni.

            I laughed more than I should have.

    • RunningWild1984

      I don’t think Taki would even know what a bra is.

    • popo123

      She’s not even wearing panties or any kind of underwear.

  • David García Abril

    Do you guys remember when “Soul Calibur” was cool? Probably the best 3D fighting series?

    That was a decade ago.


    • Saurian Dash

      I used to play the original religiously, I really enjoyed the system and the competition it brought. It’s so sad seeing what it has become, as with so many other series today.

    • MasterofMidnight

      Thanks for reminding me how old I am.

      • David García Abril

        I was in college during Soul Calibur’s prime.

        ’nuff said.

        • Mantiskilla

          Haha I was in college before Soul Calibur even came out on Dreamcast so we were still rockin’ Soul Edge on PS1. I hear ya though….we’re only getting older

          • David García Abril

            Well, to be fair, the DC game came out when I was in late high school, but I didn’t get into it until my first year in college.

            Then SCII came out, and boy did I spend hours on that thing! SCIII was also a great game for me.

            Then SCIV came when I was a couple of years in my first proper job and everything started to go south… -__-

    • fairysun

      That game and Tekken 3.
      They are enough to made me skip my college class.

      Ahhh… good old times.

    • It’s cool… If you want to dress up your characters and have no artistic skills.

      • David García Abril

        Actually, the dress up your characters part is a pretty cool feature.

        The problem is that the most important part of the game, the combat, has been going downhill ever since SCIII (as in, SCIII was still very good, but afterwards…)

        • MrTyrant

          Dress up and character creation are cool things but my problem is the lack of everything else to test them and the huge amount of dlc costumes and part for those characters.

  • Atmey

    Still slightly disappointed in Lost Sword direction, as someone who bought and played all previous games, I barely find any new content. An “Ultimate” edition that contains all characters+costumes would be more welcome.

  • Mind0105A

    pafu pafu

  • z_merquise

    Well, I guess there’s no way in freakin’ hell they’ll fix SC V anymore with added content and all that.

    I’m still pissed especially to those freakin’ people at Namco who forced the director Odashima and his team to rush the game. Now, SC V felt so incomplete and Namco doesn’t seem to be interested in fixing it.

    Oh well, this game is free anyway. Bad or not, it’s still Soul Calibur. Just not the kind of Soul Calibur I expect.

    • Kornelious

      I know, I felt that it could have been an amazing game if it had a full fleshed out story and a decent arcade mode so that we know WHO ALL THESE NEW PEOPLE ARE!

    • midgard229

      it really sucks, and honestly this game pisses me off. its cool for the poor, but seriously, they could be making a complete SC5, or making SC6 on ps4 and X1….grrrrrrr

  • megaten666

    Finally, this game got an interesting PLOT!

  • Not really surprised, she was already leaked months ago, along with the entire cast of SCV. They just updated the leaked model and made her tits & ass larger. ;)

    • Death Metal

      It seems that it’s the same model from SCIV…

      • Not really. More like SC3 reedited to match that of SCV models. Her model that was leaked didn’t look like SCIV at all, cause her breast and ass were toned down heavily, smaller than SCIV if I remembered correctly. SCIV were BIG but her leaked model for LS were smaller than SCIV and her face is MUCH different than SCIV too. This new model of her got edited and her breast got an Huge increase & her ass is bigger than in SCIV & her leaked model too. So I’m guessing mixture of SCIV & SC3 became of this new model. Too bad they still decided to remove the hard nipples again.

        • Death Metal

          Were you able to get that much just from the pics? Really? Looking at the model in the pics in this news piece looks just like SCIV to me. But then again I guess I’m bad at comparisons if I can’t see th side-by-side. If her T&A really got bigger, then I can never complain. :P

          • Yeah just from the pics and from using her in every game she was in. lol Plus, I view her model from every game she was in and face got changed alot from SCIV and Her tits and ass got an HUGE increased from the leaked model of hers, and are bigger than SCIV too. Before her tits and ass weren’t that big and were smaller than SCIV now there bigger and much more better now. ;) Still feel bad her nipples aren’t that visible again.

          • Ronldbx6

            lol hell yeah, he put way too much thought into that!

  • Ecchitori-san

    I miss bloody roar.. :(

  • At least Sexy Jutsu isn’t in.

  • Even in her 40’s, Taki’s still got it =^_^=

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      as Smokey from Friday said: The older the Berrie the sweeter the juice

  • The older I get the sillier women in fighting games get :P

  • KingGunblader

    So it comes out this month?

    This reminds me of when Tecmo Koei put that Atelier game on Vita and announced that it was out on its release date.

  • gulabjamal

    My opinion of this game has changed. Stupid single player, yet might want…. The struggle for Taki is real

  • subsamuel01

    Yes, was not a fan of Natsu. I like how their bringing back the classic characters.

  • Blackburn7

    Thank god. I hated how she was’nt in SCV even though she was like the only character I ever really played as.

  • RajaNaga

    God Taki is fucking gross, I wish they would factor the fact that no female ninja would have her boobs flapping about everywhere, nevermind the fact that uh, you know………….. unless I am mistaken, unless in the privacy of one’s bedroom most women actually wear bras??

    • Somebodyissilent

      You do know not all women wear bras right?

    • harmonyworld

      I don’t wear a bra….actually kinda uncomfortable to me~
      Though I wish they didn’t put that giant slash down her sides and maybe gave like a simple chest plate :3

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        ……go on

    • buddyluv324

      You’re forgetting Mai Shiranui from the KoF games, but then again I guess you know more about how female ninjas are suppose to be dressed right?

  • Ronldbx6

    Christ! The tits in that art! 0_0. Looks like her SC4 outfit. I don’t know why they couldn’t just give us Taki in the first place in SC5, instead replacing iconic characters of the series.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    40 years old huh….her ninja air bags did not deflate

  • fayt255

    They are at least getting one thing right by adding the old characters back!
