Watch Soulcalibur V’s Two New Additions Smash It Up

Two more fighters are officially confirmed for next year’s most anticipated weapons-based fighter, Soulcalibur V: oversized axe-wielder Astaroth and a new contender, Viola, who has a touch of Freddy Krueger to her.

The giant Astaroth looks as he always does — a hulking executioner with yet another dramatic change of clothes and skin tone. His trademark axe is just as ridiculously massive as ever.

Viola wears little more than a claw, a frilly dress and some fancy shoes to battle in Soulcalibur V. But she’s also armed with a glowing orb, making her one of the more unusual characters in this cast of very unusual characters.

Soucalibur V is slated to hit the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime in 2012.


  • Not the most elegant gameplay video. Voldo’s outfit looks horrific and the graphics a bit dated.

    I do like the look of the pink ball girl.

  • hopefully they bring back the plethora of weapons for each characters like the older iterations of the game had… and do away with the completely lame character creation mode

  • The new character looks a lot like Rose from Street Fighter Alpha and 4. Still think she looks cool and there are a few changes.
