The man in charge of Soulcalibur V, the entry in Namco’s weapons-based fighting game series, has promised us at least two new characters for next week’s San Diego Comic-Con. One has been semi-revealed and she looks vaguely familiar.
Project Soul’s Daishi Odashima took to Twitter today to offer a clear look at the next Soulcalibur V reveal, a ninja girl who looks like she might have some Taki in her. At the very least, she sports a pair of short, sheathed blades along with some red ninja garb.
Odashima hinted that Taki – who would be about 46 years old in Soulcalibur V – might make a return appearance in the next entry, mentioning that ninja often have “superhuman” powers. Hmmm…
Namco Bandai is bringing Soulcalibur V to Comic-Con next week, discussing the 2012 fighting game at one of its fighting game panels. We’ll let you know what they have to say.
