The Man from Florence arrives in the Soul Calibur World.

Even though we were probably convinced that the leaked pics from the Soul Calibur V reveal event last Oct. 17th were legit, apparently the rest of the web kept this classified as rumor up until today- when Gametrailers finally debuted this new trailer for SCV, featuring the entrance into the SC Universe of the Master Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze from the Assassin’s Creed series. Also appearing in the spot is Nightmare, who’s apparently very male and still very beastly.

Looks like Ezio’s come with at least some of his signature takedowns and arsenal, including the hidden blades and hidden pistols/crossbows. I think he’s a perfect fit for the game era and setting, and as well shouldn’t be overpowered like some overblown nobody apprentice… mmm.

The Joker- er, Dampierre barges in on the action in SCV.

UPDATE: CVG has posted several vids on SCV, including an interview with Hisaharu Tago and a trailer debut (of sorts…) for Dampierre, the backstabbing rogue who made his first appearance in Soul Calibur IV Broken Destiny. Apparently this kooky bladesman will only be available (at least initially, I think) as a bonus for those who Preorder the game. I’m sure he’ll be made available in other channels, perhaps on PSN or Xboxlive, eventually.

Can’t wait to get my hands on this game!!! Soul Calibur V drops early next year, January 31, 2012 for the PS3 and Xbox360.
