Ezio to be playable in Soulcalibur 5?

News Rumours Fighting Bandai Namco Playstation 3 Xbox 360

It seems that Soulcalibur 5 may continue on with the series’ recent tradition of including various special characters as cameo fighters from other series. An anonymous tipster sent Joystiq the above image which they say was taken from a beta version of Soulcalibur 5 which is being shown off at a fighting game tournament.

From what we see in the image above, Ezio from Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood and now Revelations will be a playable fighter in Soulcalibur 5 when it is released March next year. Of course at best this is simply a rumor because there has been no official announcement from Namco Bandai, but the art style of Ezio seen above looks quite similar to what we’ve seen from other fighters in Soulcalibur 5.

After playing games since a young age and getting into anime a bit later on its been time to write about a little bit of everything.
