So yeah, fellas. Some of you may have seen Namco-Bandai's latest countdown clock, which most people naturally assumed would be for the next entry in the Soul Edge/Calibur series given a few hints from the game's producer, Daishi Odashima and the clock's imagery. At a Namco-Bandai press event(in Dubai no less) today, the producer went ahead and released an announcement teaser trailer of the game(incidentally to a press crowd that looked like they had all just taken some Ritalin).

It's speculated that once the countdown clock ends in a few hours that we'll get a web page with the current info we know or maybe a bit more. As for the info we DO know:

- The game is set 17 years after Soul Calibur IV and takes Siegfried's ending as canon.

- Sophitia's son, Patroklos, will be the main character.

- All new characters(potentially entire cast) will be making appearances while previous characters that show up will appear "old and frail"(not sure how upper 30's is frail, but whatever).

- Gameplay will be faster than SCIV and apparently they're taking steps to ensure better online playability.

- ...Return of guest characters... Ugh...

There are a few more details at the Eurogamer page here, but what do you all think? Will we finally have a game that has longer legs than SCIV ever did? Will there still be any insanely cheesy exploits a la Kilik online? How big will Ivy's breasts be THIS time around or will they just sag around on the ground by now(to which I point you all to Mark MacDonald's retweet of a handy "reference chart")?

Anyway, check out the producer's Twitter feed for the latest updates.

Get hype!

Update 1: Here's the link to the main site. They're currently displaying incomplete character sketches that people can help complete by liking the Soul Calibur page on Facebook. Thus far Pyrra, Seigfried, and Mitsurugi have been revealed this way. Get to liking that page!

Here's the first gameplay trailer

This is incredibly exciting, but I am not sure how they will make it work with all new characters.

Staples like Mitsurugu, Kilik, Ivy, Sophitia and especially Setsuka (for me) will be hard to let go. But if they keep their kickass style while appearing older, it could be very interesting.

Does this mean we're not getting half the chartacters back? Or will SC5 be filled to the brim with 50-somethings?

I imagine that we'll get all the younger guys and gals (Xianghua, Talim, Kilik, Yunseong, Seong Mina), and then expies of the ones too old to return.

You are now imagining a 55-year-old Ivy.

I think skipping time ahead is a good idea since when you think about it the plot of the first four games is more or less exactly the same

Not to get off the subject, but the prediction is the world will end on December 21, 2012.

So I'd hope the game is out by then.

Count on it.

Soul Calibur is the only fighting game (series) I can get Addie to play -- assuming you're not being sarcastic, what is it about SC compared to something like street fighter or marvel? 3d movement / lack of a need for complex button inputs (comparatively)?

I have the same experience. The only fighter that my female friends love to death and will play other than some casual Street Fighter is Soul Calibur. From the ones I've asked, it has a lot to do with character creation, the audio/visual aesthetics of the game, and the characters and their backgrounds(I'm inclined to agree. I like Sophitia and Cassandra's back story).

Also who can resist 3D weapon combat?

Also:

Patroklos looks like a total douche.

Seigfried looks OK for an "old and frail" dude.

How is Siegfried even in the game if he committed suicide in his canonical ending?

Man it's a good time for fighters.

That new Mortal Kombat is blowing my mind. I never liked any of the past MKs but I love this one.

The only thing I never liked in Soul Calibur is the ring outs. I don't want to win by knocking them out of the ring! I wanna beat on them till they simply can't take it anymore!
