Since Soulcalibur V is a 2012 title, the team is not ready to reveal the roster. Tago said to the magazine there will be a mix of new characters and returning Soulcalibur characters who may have new weapons or armor. Patroklos, Sophitia’s son, is one of the rookie fighters. Tago confirmed yet again Soulcalibur V would have guest characters, but did not give any hints as to who. The development team wants to have at least 26 characters.


While the leads are the same, the Soulcalibur V team has been refreshed with new staff. Thus, there may be some differences between Soulcalibur V and other games in the series. Tago said there would be gameplay system changes too, but didn’t specify what those are.


Soulcalibur V, according to Famitsu, is 10% complete. Namco Bandai plans to release the game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next  year.
