Namco Bandai has confirmed Ubisoft's master assassin Ezio Auditore will be kicking ass and taking names as a guest character in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Soul Calibur 5 when it's released on February 3 next year.
The news comes following a leaked screenshot that showed Ezio on the character select screen, which many considered to be a photoshopped image due to the character artwork discrepancies. Evidently they were wrong.
Also joining the fray is Dampierre, a comical character that debuted in the PSP title Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny. Unlike Ezio Dampierre will only be available to those who pre-order Soul Calibur 5.
Check out the screens and trailers for both below.
We also caught up with Soul Calibur 5 producer Hisaharo Tago and had a quick chat about the newly revealed guest character. Check out what he had to say about Ezio in the video below.
