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.
