Namco Bandai Games Europe began streaming a 126-second English-dubbed character trailer for the Soul Calibur V fighting game on Thursday. The video introduces the characters Algol, Edgemaster, and Soul of Devil Jin, who was made by the game's developer team using the game's character creation mode.
Namco Bandai Games previously streamed a story trailer for the game last week.
Soul Calibur V's story will be set 17 years after the previous games, and it will feature a new main character. The game will have an online mode called Player Match, in which up to six players can join customized battle rooms online. While some players are fighting each other, the others can watch the bout and chat with each other via text.
The game will also feature a Global Coliseum section with "lobby" areas for different regions in the world. There, players can interact and invite each other to fighting matches. Players can also create their own smaller "lobby" areas called "lounges" in the Global Coliseum. Twice a month, a "Ranking Battle" tournament will be organized in the Global Coliseum.
Soul Calibur V will ship for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles on January 31 in North America, on February 2 in Japan, and on February 3 in Europe.
