Soulcalibur V’s Ninja Is Taki’s Disciple


Soulcalibur V director, Daishi Odashima, is in a giving mood. Last week, he revealed a new character (right) for the game, ahead of her “official” Comic-Con reveal, and today, he tweeted a bit more about her.


While Odashima didn’t provide a name, he did say who she was. On Twitter, he wrote: “She is the disciple of Taki. Wanna know her name? I’ll stop that for now so I won’t get busted, lol.”


“Thanks to guys who are already loving her,” he continued in a later tweet. “And for those who might not like her as much, I hope you love her like all the other SC character.”


Odashima’s also in the mood for reaching out to fans a little further today. “Do you know the Quick Battle mode in SCBD? I’m thinking to use fan’s name for the character in those modes,” he tweeted. “Randomly selected fan’s name will be used in the game. How is that?”
