Ezio’s Debut Burns In Soulcalibur V Trailer

The Soulcalibur franchise is known in part for their cross-franchise cameo appearances. In the past, everyone from Link (The Legend of Zelda… do I have to tell you that?), to Kratos, to Tekken‘s Heihachi Mishima has been featured in the fighter. Now, it’s time for a Master Assassin to prove that his soul still burns.

Although an image was leaked earlier this week showing Ezio available in the character selection screen in Soulcalibur V, a new video has been released by Namco-Bandai confirming Ezio Auditore di Firenze’s presence, and proves that Italians do it best.

Soulcalibur V is schedule for release some time in 2012. Keep watch for a more solid release date by bookmarking our release dates page. And in the mean time, be sure to discuss it in our forums.
