Ezio Auditore Joining Soul Calibur V
Namco Bandai confirmed earlier today that Assassin’s Creed Protagonist Ezio Auditore de Firenze will be joining the cast of Soul Calibur V next year.
Soul Calibur V’s producer Hitsuhiro Tagu pretty much said that Ezio would be a perfect fit for the Soul Calibur universe since Assassin’s Creed’s setting and characters kind of match that of the Soul Calibur world.
Hit the jump for more on the story.
There’s no word on which weapons and equipment Ezio will be using in the game but we’re fairly certain that the sword, the dagger, and to some extent, the wrist gun will be used in some form.
This comes to no surprise as the Soul Calibur franchise has seen it’s fair share of cameos and crossovers over the years.
Here’s a list of the crossover characters that’s shown up in the SC games of the past:
- Yoshimitsu (Tekken)
SOUL CALIBUR II (Console Specific)
- Xbox – Spawn
- PS3 – Heihachi Mishima (Tekken)
- Gamecube – Link (Legend of Zelda)
- Kratos (God of War)
- Darth Vader
