If you missed out on the last Soul Calibur for whatever reason, be glad to hear that Soul Calibur V is on its way to PSN and Xbox LIVE as a downloadable title. Now you can once again play as some of your favorite Soul Calibur characters... sort of. Some of you might recall this is the game that replaced several Soul veterans (Taki, Xianghua, Kilik, Sophitia sort of, etc.) with younger or alternate fighters.
Okay, so the lack of returning favorites aside, Soul Calibur V will be out for the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Games on Demand next Tuesday, April 23.
No Star Wars characters this time, thankfully, but former Assassin's Creed star Ezio is a playable character in this game, along with Tekken's Devil Jin. Can't have Soul Calibur without a bunch of random cameos these days.
On the bright side, you can finally see what Soul Calibur's spirit looks like:
