Xiba, Cervantes, Aeon and Yoshimitsu show off their best moves

A tale of two swords, interlocked in endless strife.That's a familiar sounding quote coming from the voice of the narrator in the upcoming SoulCalibur V. In the video below, you'll hear not only the usual sound bites from the narrator, but also the famous one-liners of the fighters.

This trailer features four of the characters set to battle it out in SoulCalibur V. There's the always hungry Xiba, who arguably has the best hair of the bunch. Cervantes, with his usually duel wielding swords. Also, we have the fire breathing Aeon, and the faceless Yoshimitsu.

Namco's fighter has been rich with news and media assets. See all of our coverage so far.

SoulCalibur V is arriving soon, on January 31st in North America, and February 3rd in Europe.

It's a younger extremely annoying Kilik. Great...
And they gave Lizardman wings and fire breath.

I love the SoulCalibur series, and this is a day one for me, but I'm starting to feel cheated a bit.

Was thinking about getting this until finding out that Ezio from the Assasins Creed games was in it. The Soul Calibur series is now dead to me.

And sweet, they gave my favorite character (Lizardman...err, Aeon) fire and wings. Can't hurt, I suppose.

Soulcalibur 2 had Link and Heihachi in it. Four had Yoda, Vader, and The Apprentice. Why would an Assassin kill it for you?

Regardless, eh, for me anyways. The utter bullshit achievements in 4 meant I'm done with the series.

I like the whole guest character idea. It's not like the series takes itself too seriously anyway.

I'm so glad Cervantes is back, although I'll miss his desacrated pirate voice. Xiba looks like Kilik 2.0. I'm sure he'll prove to be just as annoying. Now I just hope I can get Dampierre in my game and this looks like it will be a decent SC title.

Ppl hating on Xiba because he replacing Kilik, at least he’s a whole different character and not just a character that acts the same but look different, and on the side note he only like 15 so he can still mature throughout the next couple of SC games.
