Soul Calibur 5 Release Date Announced

Soul Calibur 5 Announced By Namco Bandai -- Get Ready To Fight In 2012

Earlier today, we learned that Ezio from Assassin's Creed will be included in Soul Calibur 5, but now we've got a release date for you, too. Soul Calibur 5 comes out on January 31.

We've also got some additonal details on the game, thanks to a recent Namco Bandai preview event. For starters, Ezio may be the just-announced guest character for the game, but he's also not necessarily the only one. 

Namco Bandai also revealed a few new characters you'll be seeing in Soulcalibur 5. Leixia is completely new, the daughter of Xianghua, a fighter from the previous games. Lord Geo Dampierre, from Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, will also be a playable fighter, and he'll apparently fill some sort of comic relief role within the cast.

The final piece of news: Ezio is not a console-exclusive. You'll be able to play as the Master Assassin in both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. If he's also not the only guest, who do you think any others might be? Other Ubisoft characters seem possible, but it's really anyone's guess at this point.

Okay, one more "final" final piece of news: the first Soulcalibur game will be getting an iOS release. I have nothing more detailed than that to tell you right now, but it's a good start at least.
