More Shiny SoulCalibur V Screens

Swords are cool.  It’s fairly hard to disagree with that
statement. They’re more skillful and precise than a gun, and in the paraphrased
words of Obi-Wan Kenobi, “elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”  So the SoulCalibur series has always been close to my heart, suffusing the basic fighting
game template with a large dose of medieval weaponry as it does.  Some new screenshots of the next game in the
series, Soul Calibur V, have
appeared on the internet, and they certainly are shiny.  Take a look!

Siegfried’s glowing eyes
aside, these screenshots certainly confirm one thing: the game is looking very
shiny indeed.  SoulCalibur IV was a pretty good-looking game, but the sequel
seems to have taken it up a notch, with the characters in particular looking
pretty snazzy.  There are other
screenshots that show what looks like a story mode – a pointer on a map of
Europe, with some accompanying text that seems to be providing a reason for the
character’s next battle.  It’s a feature
that I personally enjoy because it gives the battles some context. I like to
know why I’m beating up each outlandish, anime-styled character on my way to
claiming Soul Edge.  Check out the
screenshots and let us know what you think!
