Looks like a Free to Play 'Super Street Fighter'-version of Soul Calibur V. Not much of a difference except skins and probably balancing. But you don't hear me complain about a free to play game.

Ivy, Taki, and Sophitia are all looking pretty good, despite the fact that, chronologically, they're all supposed to be in their late 40s. Neutral

Really? Well I am not that familair with the series enough to know the its timeline so I would take your word for it. Although it is possible for people of that age to appear younger. It's base on how well one takes of their body (which in the case of the Soul Characters I would say they have done just that) and genes I think.

Anyway since I have PS3 and its free to play I am so going to get this game when I get around to it. It's been a long time since I played a Soul game (the last time, and only time, was Soul Calibur II). I wonder if Talim is going to be in the game as well. She's my favorite. ^ ^

Well actually, I think this game in particular might not be set chronologically. In Soul Calibur V, spoiler[Sophitia is apparently dead, Taki has retired and has been replaced by a younger ninja, and Ivy has conveniently "stopped aging".]

Darn. I'm a 360 player so I'm going to miss out on this one. Although seeing how it's a PS3 exclusive and they're not even trying to port it to PS4, makes me think that somehow this game is really a test game. Perhaps we might be seeing SC6 down the road next year?

I haven't played Soul Calibur V so I didn't bother looking at the spoiler, but I understand where you are coming from. In fact I was kind of having that suspicion that this game might not be set chronologically but didn't pay attention to the thought.
