Rumour: Is Assassin's Creed's Ezio Coming To Soul Calibur?

Joystiq has just received a photo from an 'anonymous tipster', claiming that Ezio Auditore de Firenze from Assassin's Creed is featured in Namco Bandai's upcoming Soul Calibur 5.

If you click through the link, you'll see a photograph, taken at a recent tournament, where a Beta version of Soul Calibur V was being shown.

We're inclined to believe the rumour. Far, far stranger things have happened in the series, which has become known for its guest fighters. Both Yoda and Darth Vader featured in Soul Calibur IV, and I remember Link being incredibly overpowered in the Gamecube version of Soul Calibur II.

We've reached out to Ubisoft for confirmation and will update if we hear anything further.

Rumor: Assassin's Creed's Ezio coming to Soulcalibur 5 [Joystiq]


    Hells Yes!

    I wish the in-game characters were actually rendered in the style of the image on the right of that screen, rather than the butt-ugly 'style' they've moved the series toward.

    I stopped playing at SoulBlade circa 1998

    That would be a fantastic guest character! Actually appropriate too, unlike in SCIV.

    Totally believable.

    You may also notice Leixia Xianghua's daughter is present as well as Nightmare and a new male charater

    This would be a totally appropriate guest character. DV and Yoda were completely ridiculous in IV. Bring on Ezio!!!!

      Is it just me, or does everyone forget about the apprentice?

      Good addition I'd say! Really the only Playstation character that can be believable on SC. Tomorrow Ratchet & Clank announced XD

    I was wondering if SC5 would have a guest character, and I think Ezio would be perfect! :D

    Wouldn't that be a bit gory when he leaps on top of Talim and slashes her throat?

    Would much prefer Ryu. I don't think I've ever despised a character as quickly as Ezio, more yes, but never as soon after being introduced to him.

    at the eb games expo, the developers of Soul Calibur said there would be a character taken from another franchise like they did with Vader and Yoda. They also said the character is on both PS3 and 360.

    So highly likely it is ezio
