Sophitia is not allowed to be excluded

I personally believe that some of the other characters (like Sophitia, Xianghua, and Kilik, possibly Taki) will appear as cameos, but not be playable. Or maybe they'll end up being unlocked by some method or another, but I think Patroklos and Pyrrha have basically pushed Sophitia and Cassandra aside.

So far, two pre-order bonuses are confirmed:
  • First, from Best Buy, is Dampierre. That's right, apparently the character is a Best Buy pre-order exclusive. He's silly, so it's kind of worth pre-ordering from here.
  • At GameStop, you get an Ivy Bobblehead. Seriously.
That's probably all there's going to be, so if you want a pre-order bonus, choose Best Buy or Gamestop (Best Buy's got a better bonus).

I'm willing to bet that the character will probably become dlc eventually though.

I'd imagine so (particularly after the "console exclusives" with SCIV), but I personally would rather not take the chance. Dampierre's too fun to pass up.

Two more returners are confirmed, though only artwork has been leaked.

- Algol, the main boss of SCIV, returns, and I don't know why.
- Edgemaster, mentioned in every game and playable in the first SC, returns. I can understand this - he's been training a lot of the other characters lately.

Less than 30 days until this comes out, so expect a lot of news to come this way.

Why the hell haven't I been following any of this? All of this information has gotten me giddy. Might have to replay all these games again before SC5 comes outs. Catch up on the story, maybe actually play SC4 *cringe*

Maybe have some epic battles between all of us?

If I decide to purchase this, I'm debating on getting it for the 360.

After reading some more background on my favourite character Mitsurugi, I can only assume Algol is coming back due to him and Mitsurugi not finishing off their duel, and Mitsurugi hearing about the return of Soul Calibur. There may be more to Algol's returning, but I'm guessing this is just one of the reasons why.

I suppose, but in SCIV, he's an overpowered combatant that's perfect for a boss, but not really for a PC.

I've been thinking of replaying some of the games as well (particularly now that I have working memory cards for my Dreamcast and my PS2).

By the way, if you need help getting any SCIV Achievements (on 360), let me know.

Very true, they must be powering him down quite a lot then. Guess we will see eh? Yea I'm going to play some Soul Edge and been playing Soul Calibur 2 a lot lately.

I would love some help with the achievements! I will be asking for my copy back from my friend in a few days. Hopefully I can learn to love SCIV..

I greatly enjoyed it, though it's not as cool as some of its predecessors. My current tier is:
- Soulcalibur III (great customization, story modes, and Chronicle of the Sword)
- Soulcalibur II (bonus characters are amazing)
- Soulcalibur IV (nice additions, customization and story modes were lackluster)
- Soul Blade (not sure what to say about this)
- Soulcalibur (no additional weapons was kinda boring)
- Broken Destiny (not great)

I'm expecting SCV to be on top, from what I've seen and read.

Setsuka.....except not

Namco's dumb. They have this character, but not Sophitia?

Well, I guess we know who gets Soulcalibur now (like it's a big surprise, but still).

Interesting that they have a character with multiple weapon disciplines...

Three new characters (kind of):
- Kilik returns. He wears a mask. It looks pretty cool.
- Alternate version of Pyrrha. Unknown what she uses (I'm guessing some version of Soul Edge, because that would be a great story).
- Elysium, who is pretty much everything Frausky wants in a character (assuming that she is indeed Sophitia, which seems very likely).


Only TWO CHARACTER SLOTS LEFT! Who will they be? One of my friends is going to be very upset if Seung Mi-Na doesn't return.
