Matsuyama assured that while Lars was a guest character in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, Naruto will not make a cameo in Soulcalibur V.


Also during the Namco Bandai fight club panel, producer at Hisaharu Toga said to fans Taki is not dead. The team wanted to show Natsu, Taki’s apprentice first, instead of showing Taki who aged 17 years after the events in Soulcalibur IV. Natsu will not be a Taki clone either. She has her own fighting style and many teleporting moves.



Z.W.E.I. who is also shown in the video above is a brand new character made for Soulcalibur V. Namco Bandai is keeping his details a secret for now, although Toga hinted his name means "two" in German. Even though Z.W.E.I. has a sword, it isn’t his main weapon. Perhaps, "two" stands for two fighting styles?
