If there’s one thing that gamers love in a fighting game, it’s a wide roster of fighters. From brawlers who have more hair gel than common sense, to combatants who somehow defy the laws of gravity and avoid wardrobe malfunctions during the heat of battle, players like to have that choice.
Of course, not every taste can be catered for, and the majority of fighting genre games don’t cater to character customisation, unless the fighters are squaring off in a WWE ring. Soul Calibur V is proving the exception to that rule however, showcasing a variety of options that will allow for truly unique characters that can be created.
Producer Hiosaharu Tago narrates the video, which shows how everything from weapons to clothing, and even the manner in which it folds, can be customised, allowing for a truly comprehensive character creation setup.
Existing characters can also be modified, to an extent, but then again, Ivy shows more than enough skin already. Although I would like to see what would happen if I made a character resembling the Ultimate Warrior and set him loose on the Soul Calibur world during one of his steroid rages…
Soul Calibur V is expected in February 2012, on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
