Four days ago, Namco Bandai released a trailer at Gamescom
for the latest instalment in their SoulCalibur
franchise. This trailer confirmed the return to SoulCalibur V
of four warriors from previous games. Now, we can provide screenshots and concept art for those of you who were unable to watch the trailer.
First up we have Hildegard von Krone, or Hilde for short. Hilde was the daughter of the ruler of Wolfkrone, a fictional European kingdom. She first appeared in http://www.trueachievements.com/Soulcalibur-IV-xbox-360.htm
Secondly we have Maxi, a wandering pirate from Shuri in the Ryukyu Kingdom. Fans will recognise Maxi as a long-term franchise stalwart, having appeared in all of the games from the very first SoulCalibur
Next up is Tira, who first appeared in SoulCalibur III
. She is a loyal servant of the evil Soul Edge.
Finally, we have Voldo. This character is the longest serving of all of the characters revealed at Gamescom, having appeared in the series since Soul Edge
, the game that preceded SoulCalibur
and was the first in the Soul
series of games.
If the character screenshots weren't enough for you, here are a couple of environmental screenshots too:SoulCalibur V
is due to be released in early 2012.
