Namco Bandai gets 2012 rolling with the release of SoulCalibur V
at the end of this month. Today they have announced the game has gone gold, and to commemorate they have released a series of new screenshots.
The likes of Algol and Edge Master
were revealed earlier, but here they are fleshed out in several different screens. From the looks of it, they will indeed be featured in the boss rush-like Legendary Souls mode. More characters look to be included in Legendary Souls, such as Inferno Cervantes and Nightmare.
That was a whole lot of screens, wasn't it? If you're a screenshot fanatic, you'll be happy to more that we have a lot more. The following feature some of the Create-a-Fighters featured in the Quick Play mode
, mentioned in our previous coverage. There's even one based off of Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada, seen below. Beyond that are an assortment of other screens for SoulCalibur V
Lastly, we shift away from screenshots to an Inside Xbox video, featuring translated commentary from producer Hisaharu Tago. The translator is sort of hard to understand, but you can gather that Astaroth has gone under some aesthetic changes, as well as developments to his storyline. We also get a glimpse at newcomer Viola beating up on my favorite character, Voldo. How dare you?!!
If after you watched the video and have carefully studied each and every screenshot, you're still somehow wanting more, check out our mountain of previous coverage
