The above is a picture allegedly snapped at a Soul Calibur 5 press event which shows none other than Assassin’s Creed’s Ezio Auditore as a playable character. Is it real? I don’t know. I believe so, but the entire thing might be doctored as Cassandra is breaking the cardinal rule of the game wearing an outfit that doesn’t showcase her rack. No true Soul Calibur title would commit such an atrocity.
As for Ezio? I think he’s definitely the perfect fit for the game, since he could even really fit into the lore if he wanted to, unlike say, Darth Vader and Yoda, special guests from past installments. But which weapon does he get to use? Sure, his wrist blade will obviously be used in a few sick grabs, but he’s trained in like every other bladed weapon on earth, so I wonder what he’d actually get to use.
These games are pretty ridiculous, but they’re the only fighting title I still enjoy playing outside of Super Smash Bros. 64
