Soul Calibur 5 screens show new characters

Properly introducing Pyrrha and Patroklos

Namco Bandai has released new screenshots from the latest in its weapon-based fighting game Soul Calibur.

Unlike these early images from June, the latest screens provide a better look at the new characters and fresh looks at the older lot.

Pictured are Pyrrha and Patroklos, two new fighters created for the fifth game, along with an older version of Mitsurugi and a slightly more dapper looking Seigfried.

There are also a few shots of the battle stages including a ship, which we're guessing belongs to Cervantes, and a torture room, probably belonging to Voldo. However, neither of those characters have been officially announced.


The Soul Calibur development team has told Japanese mag Famitsu that the game is just ten percent complete, but that 'fans will be incredibly impressed' with the final product.
