Three returning and new characters have been confirmed for Soul Calibur V. We'd thought we'd run through the characters and let you brush up on your knowledge of history.
A new character that makes her debut in Soul Calibur V. The 15-year old daughter of General Yan Wujin of the Ming Empire, Chai Leixia, uses a Chinese sword called Ten Feet of Blue and employs a sword fighting technique taught by her mother Chai Xianghua.
No surprise here. Nightmare returns. Mainstay of the series Nightmare does as the two-handed Soul Edge commands. Originally created as an alter ego to Siegfried when he claimed Soul Edge, Nightmare has since been the main antagonist of the series.
French fencer Raphael Soren is back for another round in Soul Calibur V. He first appeared in Soul Calibur II and has been a mainstay ever since. Looking even paler than before Raphael doesn't look like he's aged a bit.
Take a look at some of the beautiful vistas you will be fighting in come February 3, 2012.
